The Middy Match, open exclusively to Middy sponsored anglers, has been running annually since 2012 and this year it will be hosted by Shearsby Valley Lakes in Leicestershire.
Andy Dyson is the reigning champion. He won two years ago and has retained the trophy ever since, as Covid stopped the match from happening in 2020. It will be exciting to see who wins the trophy and prize money this year - spectators are welcome, so it's your chance to see some elite level match anglers fight it out and maybe even pick up a few tricks yourself if you study their fishing carefully.
This year's Middy Match will take place on Friday 16 July. This is just one day prior to the Middy Academy day for juniors, which is also at Shearsby, so the Middy Match will also give sponsored anglers an opportunity to learn a bit more about the venue before coaching the kids the following day.
We hope to see you there!
