FLW Outdoors Bass Fishing

A new sport to Europe, the FLW Tour showcases bass fishing – America’s big money outdoor sport that has evolved into a major attraction over the past decade.

Sporting a total purse of over $10 million, the tour takes place on huge lakes across the USA as up to 200 anglers fish from boats, using lures to trap the elusive bass.

Anglers are allowed to present a maximum of five fish for the weigh-in and they select these from a live well on their boat where caught fish are stored. Following qualification, there is a cut and the field is whittled down to the ten leading anglers and top prizes big as $1,000,000 are on offer for the victorious fishermen.

Fish’O’Mania

Fish ‘O’ Mania, now over a quarter of a century old, is one of the great summertime sporting occasions. Known as the ‘FA Cup of Fishing’, the competition involves 24 anglers who have qualified through heats across England and Europe, fishing off for a massive £50,000 first prize. The event gains much of its excitement by abandoning the traditional weigh-in at the conclusion of the match, and instead features weigh-ins every 30 minutes which gives the
event a changing leader board that makes the
action easy to follow.
