Dou­ble up for Douds

Trout Fisherman (UK) - - NEWS & VIEWS -

REIGN­ING Ju­nior Trout­mas­ters cham­pion, Har­ri­son Douds, made it a sum­mer dou­ble when he be­came English Youth Loch Style Na­tional Cham­pion at Dray­cote. Just seven weeks af­ter lift­ing the Ju­nior Trout­mas­ters crown at Northum­ber­land’s Thrun­ton Long Crag, the 14-year-old from Bedling­ton, Northum­ber­land saw off 20 other an­glers in the 11-16 age bracket at the fa­mous War­wick­shire reser­voir, in the Greys-spon­sored Loch Style event, in early Septem­ber. With places in the Eng­land Youth Fly Fish­ing squad for 2019 up for grabs, the match was fished to full catch mea­sure and re­lease and fea­tured two ses­sions, a new for­mat for the event. An­glers scored 1 to 21 points in each ses­sion with cu­mu­la­tive length de­ter­min­ing ses­sion points and at the end of the match their ses­sion scores were com­bined to give each an­gler an over­all match re­sult.
