Once more qualification will be one angler in every 15 peg section.
Anglers can fish the qualifiers as a member of the Angling Trust for £25 or as a non-member for £40 and need to pick the appropriate ticket. All pools for this event will be on the morning and given to the highlighted organiser and are £20.
Anyone who has qualified for the final already from the matches held in September & October 2020 will be automatically rolled over into the March 2022 final.
Anglers that have already qualified for the 2022 Final are permitted to buy further tickets this year, and any qualification spot will be defaulted in a section if they were to qualify.
Mick Brownell fought off tough opposition to be crowned the inaugural SilverFish Champion 2020. The new forty angler final saw an abundance of silvers caught across the wonderful Hallcroft Fisheries and was watched by tens of thousands on Catch More Media and the Angling Trust’s Facebook pages.
Peg 46 on Moat Island was Mick’s home for the day and he caught on expander over micros to amass an impressive 51lb 8oz of Bream and skimmers to 4lb. Mick added ‘I’m delighted to be the first winner of this super new event and what an awesome days fishing we all had!
Andy Oldham pushed Mick all the way from peg 49 on the same lake but came up just short with 48lb 7oz. Third was the ever impressive Andy May with 41lb 4oz from Bridge Island peg 20. Bill ‘the pellet king’ Everitt adopted his favourite approach to take fourth with 37lb 10oz off Moat Island 43 and fifth was Chris Greensides with 37lb 4oz from Croft.
Our thanks to Hallcroft Fisheries for hosting the final, along with all the qualifying venues and hardy anglers who fished the qualifiers.
We’re delighted by the success of SilverFish in this it’s first year and will be working closely with Catch More Media to sort out a brand new set of qualifiers starting in September, so watch this space!
