The Knockout Cup Semi Final

Today is the Semi Final of the Drennan Knockout Cup!


This prestigious series run by Match Fishing magazine has seen over 150 anglers taking part, but we are now down to just 15 qualifiers. Each has made it through the tough knockout stages, testing their all-round skills on lakes, canals and rivers.
