Competitors of HFE4 will get to use brand new measuring boards.
It’s a light-weight, easy to handle aluminium measuring board. The board can be used to measure fish up to 130 centimetres in a quick, harmless way. With 3 holes throughout the length, it can be secured with a leash any way an angler wants.
“With this new measuring board, competitors can measure big fish themselves. There is no longer the need to call and wait for the marshal boat. This is much better for the well-being of the fish and the angler can go back to fishing quicker.” Gero Priebe says. “We are really happy to have them available for HFE4.”
Marshal boats will still be patrolling the water for anglers safety.
