The 4th Hobie Fishing European Championship powered by Lowrance & C-MAP will be held at the Vinkeveense Plassen in the Netherlands from the 8th till the 10th of September. In 2014, this beautiful lake was the tournament arena for the 4th Hobie Fishing Worlds.

“After visiting France in 2015 and Sweden in 2016, it felt right to go back to the Netherlands. Behind the scenes we are already preparing to make this event the best one yet.” Gero Priebe says. The Vinkeveense Plassen, stretching over 2400 acres, is a former peat cutting area. It is one of the clearest lakes in the Netherlands, holding a large and healthy stock of predatory fish. Pike and Perch are marked as target species.

Like all previous editions, the HFE4 is a two day event. The angler with the most aggregate length over the two days will win the title of European Champion, a spot on team Europe for the Hobie Fishing Worlds 7 including a flight voucher and a prize package provided by our sponsors. Competitors must fish from a Hobie Mirage Kayak. The entry fee for this two day event is 100 EUR.
