Sweden has been chosen as the host nation for the 3rd Hobie Fishing European Championships.
The kayak event, sponsored by Lowrance and GoFree, will take place on Lake Mjörn in the country’s west coast region, where anglers will target pike, perch and zander.
“Sweden’s extraordinary potential as one of Europe’s greatest angling destinations was the key reason for the decision,” said organiser Gero Priebe, Fishing Product Manager for Hobie Europe. “And in Lake Mjörn we have found the perfect venue.”
The tournament takes place from September 9th to 11th and will be fished to a photo-and-release format. It will be decided on the highest aggregate length over two days. All competitors will fish from their own Hobie Mirage kayaks and the winner will automatically qualify for the Hobie Fishing Worlds 2016.
