The England Youth U22s were well represented in this year’s World Championships in Mantova, Italy on 24th & 25th July, scooping team Bronze, with Matt Godfrey taking the Individual Silver. The venue was technically very difficult and the correct balance between big carp, catfish and bream had to be found, with the big shoals of small skimmer bream averaging just 15g each.

Angling Trust Fishing NewsDay 1 saw a great team effort amassing a 12 total with Matt Godfrey winning his section with a staggering 260 fish for 4.95 Kg, 100 more fish than anyone else in the field. Seconds came from Matt Derry and Callum Dicks, and a 6th from Ricky Hines, who drew the wrong end of the end section. These performances helped us into second place and 2 points behind Serbia, whose big fish approach worked well.

Day 2 saw a controversial start when it became clear that France, Serbia, England and Holland, the top 4 teams, were all on adjacent pegs in every section, leaving Italy in the other half of the section with none of the main contenders to compete against. They made the most of it, scoring just 7 pts for a winning total of 22 pts.

Team England came in with another great 13pts, Matt Godfrey 2, Cameron Hughes 2, Matt Derry 4, Callum Dicks 5 for 25, tying with Serbia and Slovenia, but being beaten by Serbia by 900g. We were 3Kg ahead of Slovenia.

Matt Godfrey scooped silver with 3 points but was beaten by Dutchman, Sjors Milder on the same 3 pts, but with a 500 g weight advantage.

Mark Downes, England U22s Manager said “All in all a great result for the team, and with just a little luck we could have done a memorable double.”

Dick Clegg, OBE, International Events Manager stated “Once more England has proven at all levels that they are the team to beat in World Angling. By finishing 3rd in the U22s and with the ever consistent Matt Godfrey adding another medal to his trophy cabinet, we can all be proud of their achievements”.

England U18s team finished 6th at this year's World Championships on Canale Fissero Tartaro in Mantova, Italy in one of the closest finishes for years. Unluckily, England did not draw one of the eight end pegs available over the weekend, which had a huge influence on the final result.

Fishing the whole week in 35 to 40 degrees heat, this year's very young team proved themselves to be very efficient anglers drawing with Italy on points but losing out on weight. A total of 17 teams fished the Championships with Portugal winning the Gold medal with 29pts.

The Ladies World Championship event was held on the River Fiuma Mandria in Berreto near Palma, Italy on 22nd and 23rd August 2009. The Subfish Team England Ladies were Sandra Scotthorne, Emma Pickering, Wendy Locker, Helen Dagnall, Claire Dagnall, Samantha Perkins and Kayleigh Smith, managed by Tommy Pickering.

Angling Trust Fishing NewsAfter five days practice the team were the favourites, and caught more fish than anyone else. The team had a method that was working well and were quite confident. The match came, but the plan didn’t work on day one with the team finishing in 8th position. Unfortunately, because of the new system when there are more than 15 teams taking part the sections are split into two, and this meant that the team were only a few points behind and still had the chance to fish for a medal, so they changed the method a fraction. After two hours on day two the team had nine points and thought they were in the silver medal position, but sadly they stopped catching, fell behind and finished 10 points off a medal. At the end of the event Subfish Team England Ladies finished in 7th position.

Team Positions:
1st place – Germany
2nd place – Czech Republic
3rd place - Hungary

Tommy Pickering, Subfish Team England Ladies Manager, stated “The only chance we had was individual gold and Emma Pickering had won her section on day one. On day two Emma hooked a big fish and played it for 15 mins but it came off near the net. If she had caught it she would have been World Champion, and if she hadn’t hooked it she might have still been World Champion as she would have had time to net more fish. We are all gutted to miss out this year, but it is something that I have seen coming to be fair. When I took over 8 years ago we won 3 gold medals over 4 years, and it was easier in those days. Unfortunately now all the other teams have gone away and improved. Also all the other teams have managers, coaches and hold friendly international events. More of the teams nowadays are unbelieveable, and full credit to them that they have caught us up, but one of our problems is we don’t fish to FIPS rules. We now need to put the work in to where we should be as the standard is so different now “.

Dick Clegg OBE, International Coarse Events Manager stated “I can understand the frustration that both the management and team feel with what is a very disappointing result in Italy. However, I know the quality of everyone concerned and expect them to excel next year. When I hear the comments from the competitors of other countries and the high regard that they have for the England camp then as International Events Manager I know that this is only a small blip on an otherwise excellent international record”.

The Angling Trust’s Anglers with Disabilities England Team took part in the 11th Freshwater World Championships at Ponte De Sor, Portugal on 8th-9th August 2009. The Sor River at Ponte De Sor is clear water and slow stream with the main fish specimens present being Barbel, Bogas, Carps and Bleaks.

Angling Trust Fishing NewsThe World Champion squad consisted of anglers who had earlier in the year taken part in selection matches that were fished to international rules to help identify anglers who are of international calibre. Fishing at international level is completely different to the way anglers normally fish in this country, and the selection matches gave the anglers the opportunity to prove their skills to deliver success at Ponte De Sor. The squad selected to take part in the World Championships consisted of; Stefan Gent, Mark Eves, Alan Chadbone, Andy Lakey, Terry Naulls, and England Manager, Joe Roberts.

Joe Roberts, England Manager stated “On day one the top three teams all fished for bleak with weights up to 3kg. England started for bleak, but started slipping behind the leading teams after 1 ½ hours, so changed their method to waggler and long pole feeding Hemp seed, the team managed to pull it back finishing the first day in 5th place. 

On day two the team started for bleak but only for 20 minutes, then changed onto another method for waggler and long pole, going ahead and winning day two with 9 points. The team gelled really well together and I was a little concerned on day one, but the team managed to pull it back on day two and take the bronze medal position and win 3rd place overall. I would like to thank Drennan for donating tackle to the team and offer our appreciation for their support.”

Day 1
1st Slovenia 12 pts

3rd Croatia 12 pts
4th France 15 pts
