Event Info

48 of the best kayak anglers in the world are heading to Amal in Sweden to contest the 7th Hobie Fishing World Championship in May 2018. It will be the second appearance of the championship on the European continent after Hobie Fishing Worlds 4 was successfully staged outside of Amsterdam on Vinkeveen Plassen in the Netherlands in 2014.

In the lead up to competition, anglers will have the opportunity to sound-out and pre-fish the location, which is unfamiliar to most, before the start of competition. All the action will take place on Lake Vanern with anglers targeting pike and perch over the three days of the world championship competition.

The event will see many anglers getting their first taste of European fishing as well as Swedish culture and hospitality.

A short list of shopping, medical, banking, chemist, cafes & restuarants that are available in Amal.
