Zerofit has taken a further step on its way to becoming the preferred baselayer brand for fishing enthusiasts in the UK by sponsoring The Angling Trust’s mega-popular SilverFish competition for the 2022-23 season.
Now entering its third year, the competition will have a projected £10,000 up for grabs to the winner in the grand final next March.
This year there will be more qualifiers than ever before – a total of 20 big matches - with a number of new silverfish-filled venues stepping forward to support the popular winter competition. As the headline sponsor, Zerofit has agreed to provide the winners of these qualifiers with a special SilverFish baselayer package including the award-winning Heatrub Ultimate, Performance Move Hoodie and Thermal Hat, a collection worth £125.
New venues include Broom Fisheries, Rycroft, Sykehouse, and Makins, and they will join with firm favourites Meadowlands, Packington, Barston, Hallcroft, and more in hosting the 45 and 60 peggers. Starting in early October and running into February 2023, three anglers will qualify for the final from each 45-peg event and four from those with 60 pegs.
Based on a sell-out, that will mean a prize fund of over £18,000 will be fished for in the 60-peg grand final with £10k going to the overall champion angler.
Zerofit’s Heatrub Ultimate baselayer has been independently tested and proven to be five times warmer than a standard model, making the Japanese organisation the perfect partner for the SilverFish series which runs through the winter.
‘To partner with The Angling Trust and sponsor the amazing and ever-expanding SilverFish Series is an ideal opportunity for us to show anglers how we can help keep them warm and cosy while fishing during the coldest months of the year,’ said Michael Morton, Zerofit Europe Managing Director.
‘The feedback we’ve received over the past two years from both male and female anglers has been remarkable, and we are confident this partnership will allow us to reach even more people at the end of 2022,’ he added.
Tickets for Zerofit Silverfish 2022-23 qualifying matches go on sale at Noon on September 14 2022 via anglingtrust.net/our_competitions/ on a first come, first served basis. Tickets for Angling Trust members are £30 and non-members £45.
