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.
