Carp Team Eng­land Ladies com­pleted their sum­mer sea­son of fix­tures vic­to­ri­ous once again, tak­ing gold with an­other mag­nif­i­cent international win. Hosted at Thorpe Lea fish­ery in Sur­rey, the cream of Euro­pean Ladies carp an­gling de­scended on the UK in hot and bright con­di­tions to com­pete for the ti­tle of International Carp Fish­ing As­so­ci­a­tion Euro­pean Tri-na­tions Cham­pi­ons.

Run to FIPSED International rules, which are sig­nif­i­cantly more strin­gent and com­plex than our own do­mes­tic rules, the lake was split into three sec­tions with a pair from each na­tion com­pet­ing in each section. The teams then bat­tled it out in three mini matches with 1 point for the win­ner, 2 for sec­ond, 3 for third and 4 for a no-score.

A dom­i­nant Eng­land took the win in two sec­tions with a sec­ond in the fi­nal section, for an unas­sail­able 4 point re­sult. Wales came in sec­ond with 7 points and Hol­land took third with 11 points.

“It was a tough match in dif­fi­cult con­di­tions but we re­ally wanted this win” an­nounced Eng­land Ladies Player Man­ager, Mi­randa Brown. “Although on home turf, we hadn’t fished this venue be­fore so we had to be on our toes with both tac­tics and tac­ti­cal changes. We brought our A game and it worked. We’re over the moon”.

This vic­tory makes it a double whammy for Eng­land Ladies who ear­lier in the year won the An­glo Welsh Cup for a record third time in a row.

Fe­male par­tic­i­pa­tion in carp an­gling is one of the big­gest suc­cess sto­ries and growth ar­eas in mod­ern-day an­gling, at­tract­ing wide­spread press and na­tional tele­vi­sion cov­er­age. Eng­land ladies are at the fore­front of the drive and are re­spected as No.1 in the world.

In June 2019 France will host the in­au­gu­ral FIPSED (International Sport Fish­ing Fed­er­a­tion) World Cham­pi­onships. Head coach and Carp Team Eng­land Boss, Rob Hughes, added “The girls are bril­liant an­glers, am­bas­sadors and rep­re­sen­ta­tives for our coun­try and our sport. They are a for­mi­da­ble team that fished hard and tac­ti­cally. They de­served the vic­tory.”

Eng­land Ladies are now look­ing for­ward to de­vel­op­ing even fur­ther as a squad across the rest of the sum­mer with a num­ber of ex­hi­bi­tion events fol­lowed by train­ing through the win­ter break”.
