Division One National fishing championships in 2013

The 2013 Angling Trust Division One National Championship saw fifty six teams, 560 anglers compete in a very close contest on Saturday 7th September on the Trent and Mersey canal between Rugeley and Burton. The temperature had dropped during the run up to the match, and a cold start to the day resulted in the better fish not feeding so well. This turned into a battle for bites from the smaller fish such as roach, perch and ruff.

Top team on the day were Shakespeare Superteam with 442 points a fantastic average of 44 points per angler. They fished to a very tight team plan, which involved putting five or six balls of groundbait down the far shelf then fishing chopped worm down the near side for perch and ruff while the groundbait settled. When bites on the inside dried up they fished squatts over their groundbait hoping for small roach, perch and skimmers. Later they moved to the shallow line on the far side with chopped worm as the bait. They finished the match rotating these three lines to catch the extra few grams, which worked well on a hard fished water.

In second place were a team with a first class record on canals, Maver Image with 429 points and again squatt and chopped worm tactics were the basis of their team plan. Third place went to Team Daiwa Dorking who are always in contention for any national title with their extremely talented team to total 416 points.
