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

Barns­ley, the 2018 Di­vi­sion 1 Na­tional win­ners.
