Now in its fifth year, Daiwa is proud to have once again teamed up with The Scottish Sun newspaper, and Carron Valley, one of the top trout waters in the country.
The competition involves fly fishing from boats (random paired anglers), with six heats starting from the 21st May where the top third of anglers go through to the semi finals. The semi finalists then fight out for place in the final with the top half from each semi getting a place. All finalists get a commemorative fleece and cap, with the main prize winner getting a fishing holiday for two anglers at a choice of amazing designations around the globe. It costs £15 to enter per heat.
The entire completion is ran on a catch and release basis with all fish measured, scoring a point per cm, and verified on a score card by the other angler. Carron Valley is a famous reservoir in central Scotland offering incredible wild brown trout sport as well as A1 grade rainbow action.
Daiwa Marketing Manager Stephen McCaveny explained, “The Masters is now established as a key event on the fly fishing competition calendar and thanks to the generous amount of places that go through to a semi from each heat it is ‘wide open’ for any angler. I am looking forward to seeing plenty of new faces as well as our committed regulars and of course the incredibly friendly atmosphere that the event has become known for. Add to that the exciting news about increased stockings and a new lodge and I think 2013 is going to be a cracking year to be part of The Masters.”
