Please click here for all the published lists for all 16 x Fish O Mania XXII qualifiers for 2015.  These lists have all the successful applicants and reserves listed against each qualifier venue.

The list of published lists will let you check for which entries you have been successful in obtaining this year. If duplicate names appear against venues it is because more than one person has entered with the exact same name.

If you are listed as a reserve then no money has been taken, and you will be telephoned when a ticket becomes available against the qualifier you have applied for.

A full ticket return policy is listed when you click onto the qualifier lists and will also be available on the back of your tickets to help re-allocate ticket/s to the reserves listed. Please listen out for any voice mail messages and look out for your emails to help in the re-allocation process, as this can be a lenghtly process getting hold of reserves in the time allocated prior to a qualifier, and if no response from the reserve/s we keep going down the lists to ensure all places are filled, so your assistance would be greatly appreciated.

If you need to discuss anything relating to Fish O Mania 2015 please contact Sandra Drew, Competitions & Events Manager at the Angling Trust on 0115 9061 301 or email;

Fish 'O' Mania Policy for No Shows in 2015

It was noticeable that in 2014 there was a significant increase the number of no shows at some of the Fish 'O' Mania qualifying heats. To support all anglers wishing to participate in this event it has been agreed that any no shows in 2015 will be recorded on a list, and that the Angling Trust and Matchroom Sport would reserve the right to take further action which may result in the angler being disqualified from entering the following year.

Matchroom Sport and the Angling Trust support competitors wishing to participate in this prestigious event. Every endeavour is made to enable anyone who cannot fish any of the qualifiers for whatever reason to contact the Angling Trust office as well as the organiser on the day. This will enable their tickets to be re-allocated to anglers on the reserve list, and thus encourage full fields at the events and so support all competitors wishing to take part in the Fish ‘O’ Mania qualifiers.
