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.
