Eng­land lose World ti­tle

Angling Times (UK) - - CARP NEWS -

CARP Team Eng­land failed to re­tain their World Carp Cham­pi­onship ti­tle in a tight com­pe­ti­tion in France.

The reign­ing champs fin­ished sixth out of 26 na­tions, with Rus­sia tak­ing the ti­tle ahead of Lithua­nia and Ro­ma­nia. Wales fin­ished 14th.

Eng­land man­ager Rob Hughes said of the 72-hour event at Lac Du Bour­don: “It was an amaz­ing, ex­cit­ing, ex­hil­a­rat­ing and dis­ap­point­ing com­pe­ti­tion – all at the same time.

“One ex­tra fish in two of our sec­tions could have put Eng­land on the podium, but the same could be said for a num­ber of teams.

“It was a scratch­ing match and fished hard, and so did we but, at the end of the day, we were not good enough this year to win.”
