Word is that this year’s Fish ‘O’ Mania Final is being moved from Hayfield Fishery to Browning Cudmore Fishery in Staffordshire.

Match Fishing magazine is reporting that Arena Pool is the chosen lake, the same pool where current Fish ‘O’ Mania champion Clive Wright qualified from with a 78-14-0 catch of mostly barbel.

The circular pool has a central island within casting distance of every swim and should be perfect for the 16-angler Final. One minor drawback could be that two ends of the lake are apparently quite narrow behind the swims which could potentially limit spectator access. The solution to this could be to peg just two sides of the lake rather than spread the 16 pegs equally around the perimeter. More details to follow.
