Important Notice 31st May 2017
We have decided to add an additional qualifier to be fished at the popular Larford Lakes on Wednesday 28th June.
The draw will take place at 9am and fishing will be 12-5pm. Please note all the complex will be utilised so pegging will be extremely generous.
This additional qualifier is due to the cancellation of the Gold Valley qualifier, which unfortunately has not received the support required which was due to take place on Saturday June 3rd 2017.
We apologise for any inconvenience caused but must act in the best interest of the competition and the participating anglers.
Anglers that have booked & paid for tickets for Gold Valley may transfer their tickets to one of the remaining 9 qualifiers or alternatively, a full refund will be issued.
With nine qualifiers remaining, the prize fund is still a grand total of £62,000 with a life changing £50,000 first prize.

Jon whincup made history on Saturday 4th March beating the talented field of anglers in the first ever Golden Reel qualifier at Cambridgeshire’s Decoy lakes complex.
Jon drew fancied peg number 20 on the Oak Lake recording a superb 147-15-00 and a place in the prestigious Golden Reel final in August 2017.
Jon will now be fishing for a life changing £50k.
2017 was a remarkable year for Jon winning the Match This event and Parkdean Masters plus a number of other open match competitions netting him around £95k. Without doubt, Jon has firmly established himself as one of the greatest anglers within the modern day sport of angling.
