Kayak anglers who wish to participate in the 2015 Adventure Fishing World Championship (AFWC) will now have to qualify at one of five AFWC Regional events. The regional qualifiers have been spread across the country to give anglers the opportunity to participate and hopefully place in a tournament.

Picking the right regional could be the key to success this year as some of the locations look trickier then others to navigate.

Taken from the AFWC website: "Each AFWC regional will be of similar format to the championship with 5 checkpoints except the courses will be laid out where anglers can expect to paddle 5-10 miles rather than the grueling 10-20 expected at the championship. Other than that the experience is the same, a partner event with anglers required to reach and catch fish at a minimum of 2 out of 5 checkpoints and be back to the start finish line by 5PM."
