Anglian Water Airflo International 2018
We are pleased to launch the 2018 series of our international fly-fishing championship sponsored by Airflo. We are  grateful to Airflo for the company's continued support.

The event is for teams of six anglers and it will follow the same popular format as previous years with teams entering qualifying rounds and national finals. The prestigious two day International Final will be fished at Rutland Water on 2nd and 3rd October, culminating in the presentation evening on the final day. The entry fee for this match is £150 per team of 6. We urge you all to try and enter a second team as we will be offering the usual discount of 50% on a second entry fee.

Teams not qualifying for the AWAI final will have the chance to fish in the runners up Grafham Water Championship. Entry is by invitation to top non qualifying teams from the AWAI Regional Finals and will be held on 22nd September.

Scroll down to download the Competition Calendar and Entry Form. As you can see there are heats at nine top fisheries throughout the British Isles and I hope that you will be able to get a team together and find a date and venue to suit you.

Scottish Heats – We will be at Lake of Menteith for one day only. There will be both a day heat/final and an evening heat/final. Both will be fished on 7th June with a maximum of 10 teams per session.

Irish Heat – We will be at Lough Melvin for one day only. We are currently awaiting a date, which we hope will be set by Feb 2018.

Welsh Heat – We will be at Llyn Brenig for one day only. There will be a day heat/final which will be fished on 12th August.

Together with our sponsors Airflo we will ensure the continued generosity of the prize and hospitality fund throughout the competition. The silver salver first presented in 1982, the Water Aid Trophy (for the biggest fish) and the Overseas Trophy (best placed overseas team) will be presented at our presentation dinner, the best in UK fly-fishing.

If you have any further queries or questions please do not hesitate to contact us.

We look forward to meeting you during 2018.
