Final match prizes will be given for 1st to 3rd place also a prize will be given to the biggest fish of the competition or entry into the final.

Prize money and or voucher value will be determined by the participant number.

If more anglers enter than the lake can hold, the compeition will be split evenly over the appropriate number of lakes. The lakes will then be fished as individual competitions: 1st place on each lake will receive a place in the final match.
