Want to fish for Eng­land?

Angling Times (UK) - - MATCH NEWS -

TRI­ALS for the Eng­land Dis­abled and Vets squads for 2017 take place next month on Septem­ber 9.

This is early due to ar­range­ments and book­ings which need to be made for the com­pe­ti­tions next year in Ser­bia. Vet­er­ans must be at least 55 years old on De­cem­ber 31, 2016 to com­pete and any an­gler who is reg­is­tered dis­abled is el­i­gi­ble for this cat­e­gory. Each an­gler must also be an in­di­vid­ual mem­ber of The Angling Trust.

The Vets Team is bid­ding to be­come the first English coarse fish­ing side in his­tory to win three team gold medals on the trot, after vic­tory in the pre­vi­ous two events. The tri­als will take place at Packington Somers Fish­ery in Meri­den, Soli­hull.
