ANGLING TRUST NATIONALS
Few things beat the buzz of National day when teams descend on a venue to put to good use hours of practice.
The banter at the draw, the unknown element of the peg you’re handed and the thrill of waiting for the result all adds up to a top day out!
Canals are hosting this year’s Division One and Two events, and the Angling Trust has picked good ones, with the Aire & Calder and New Junction in Yorkshire awaiting the top boys while Division Two teams are off to the Shropshire Union.
As ever, fishing for a small-fish weight will get the job done for the team but just maybe you’ll draw on that bream peg and be crowned National champion.
All the big guns will be on show but, as Matrix Ted Carter proved a few years ago, you don’t have to be a star turn to win.
Entries are still being taken for both events but your team members will need to be paid-up Angling Trust members to fish. Email the Trust’s competitions manager Sandra Johnson at
