Now into its 19th year and with a truly international following, John Horsey’s individual fly fishing championships are the biggest of their kind in the World.
Known as the “Friendly fly fishing championships”, it is an unparalleled opportunity for our competitors to share a boat with some of the best anglers in the World.
You can enter as many of the 12 Heats as you wish, on any of the 8 venues located across the UK.
John Horsey is the Championship Manager: with 48 England International Team Caps and 18 years of running fishing competitions, John has the perfect credentials to deliver a well-organised, friendly fishing experience second to none:
“It is my intention to give all competitors great value for money, a huge selection of prizes and an enjoyable day on the water. Where else can you pay your entry fee and end up spending the whole day fishing with a World Champion?”
The Grand Final will be held at Draycote Water on Sunday 18th August 2019 with official practice the previous day.
There will be 100 competitors and the Presentation Dinner will take place afterwards in the Waterside Restaurant above the Fishing Lodge at the fishery.
