2019 Angling Trust Loch Style Team Championships

Draycote Water – Sat 15th – Sun 16th June 2019 

The competition is open to both AT member clubs/groups and non members from the UK and abroad. AT member clubs will receive priority access and a discounted entry fee. The all in entry fee includes fishing permits, boat hire and competition entry fee for 2 days. The 2 day event will take place on 15th & 16th June 2019 at Draycote Fishery with a maximum of 24 team places available offered on a first come first served basis.

Six anglers will form a team, each team will be split into two sub teams of three on both days.

A briefing will be held at Draycote on Day 1 and the presentation held at the fishery at the end of day 2.

The match will be fished to international rules and full catch, measure and release. Boats must return to the jetty in time for the end of each session where score cards will be submitted to organisers. The combined team length in cm over two days will determine the overall result and winning team.

The match will consist of three 3 hour sessions each day. During each session, one angler from each sub team of three will act as a boat steward for another team while the fishing pair will fish together in the same boat with a boat steward from another team. Every angler must act as a boat steward for one session each day, each angler will fish for 6 hours each day and act as a boat steward for 3 hours.

48 Boats for practice on Thursday 13th & Friday 14th June have been reserved at Draycote. Should you wish to book a boat please contact the fishing lodge to book your boats before Friday 7th June. Boats for practice must be paid for direct with the fishery and are not included in the competition entry fees. We may have to limit the number of boats available for practice to 2 per team. This is still to be confirmed however if the number of entries increase as we hope, then there will only be 48 boats available and this restriction would ensure each team has equal opportunity to practice.

Clubs/groups can join the Angling Trust from £60 per year join here

Draw

The Draw splits the 32 finalists into 4 groups – A, B, C, D. These groups then fish two sessions and control two sessions on each day. The Draw also identifies a Priority Number, which establishes the precedence that a finalist has over his fellow group members at the start of sessions 1, 3, 5 & 7 to select his start position within his beat. This Priority Number can be used up to 20 mins of the start time for these sessions.

Beat Map & Rules

Fishing will be to ATTEFF International Competition Rules and those Rule Modifications listed below. Copies of the rules are available on this website, but the main points will be briefed on the day.  Fishery rules, beat info and parking areas available via interactive map at:

https://www.google.com/maps/d/u/0/edit?hl=en&mid=1rySpUIpsTZFMdG31dZ0GiD-2Q694Mo8k&ll=54.5357136245043%2C-2.4144004296076673&z=15

Rule Modifications

1. Trout and Grayling

2. Size Limit – minimum 18cm

3. In both the Final (and in any practice days), ATTEFF rules and these Modifications apply.

4. The use of the ‘bung’ is strictly banned, any form of foam or cork bodied indicator fly is not allowed.

5. Dry flies used in methods such as trio and duo should be flies that can reasonably be expected to take a fish.

6. ‘Shuffling’ is to be completely avoided.

7. Controllers and Competitors are allowed to cross the river at the official crossing points only. i.e. Blacksyke bridge at Sandford; Stepping Stones at Crackenthorpe; and the cattle grid upstream of the Stepping Stones.

8. Fish have to be netted whilst the fish is in the water. Under no circumstances should a fish be “Aerialised”.

 

This event will be run and administered by Jeremy Lucas, Paul Page and Baz Reece. If you have any questions please contact Baz on 07811 560383.

Simon Robinson came 3rd with 14 fish on the River Sarca – Pinzolo, with Howard Croston 9th on the River Noce, and Scott Nellins 10th on the River Sarca – Tione. Phil Dixon came 12th on the River Sarca – Arco, with Andrew Scott saving a blank on Lake Cornisello to finish 25th. England slipped one place to 10th with 121 placing points.

Session 3

A better session for England saw Howard Croston winning his section on the River Sarca – Arco with 13 fish, plus a 5th place for Andrew Scott on the River Sarca – Pinzolo, and 6th for Phil Dixon on the River Sarca – Tione. Although Simon Robinson came 23rd on the River Noce and Scott Nellins was one of the 50% of the field who blanked on an increasingly difficult lake sector, England still moved up to 8th place. Spain held onto their first place with 94 points, ahead of Italy on 115 points, with France and the Czech Republic both on 123 points session_3_teams_cumul The leading individuals changed, with Vojtech Ungr (Czech Republic) in 1st place with 9 points, ahead of Igor Lukasik (Slovak Republic), Jyrki Hiltunen (Finland), Carlo Sciaguri (Italy) and Jure Osolin (Slovenia) all on 12 points session_3_indiv_cumul

Session 4

This session saw some more good performances from England, with Andrew Scott coming 3rd on the River Noce, and Phil Dixon saving a blank on Lake Cornisello to finish 7th, where again, half the field failed to catch. Scott Nellins came 10th on the River Sarca – Ponzolo, Simon Robinson 11th on the Sarca – Arco and Howard Croston 16th on the Sarca – Tione. Even so, England slipped to 9th place overall with 230 placing points, as it got increasingly tight at the top. With one session to go, Spain and Italy both had 164 points, with the Czechs just 4 points behind on 168, ahead of Poland on 192 and France on 194 session_4teams_cumul Individually, Jyrki Hiltunen (Finland) was currently 1st with 16 points, one point ahead of Igor Lukasik (Slovak Republic), David Garcia Ferreras (Spain), and Jure Osolin (Slovenia) session_4indiv_cumul

Session 5

The final session saw Andrew Scott get a 5th place on the River Sarca – Arco, with Simon Robinson coming 10th on the Sarca – Tione, and Phil Dixon 19th on the Sarca – Pinzolo. On the River Noce Scott Nellins came 19th, but Lake Cornisello continued to prove difficult, with Howard Croston one of the 10 who failed to catch. England finished the Championships at 9th place on 310 placing points, with Ireland 13th on 369 points. There was little to split the top three teams, but a good performance by Spain saw them become the 2018 World Champions with 182 points, with the Czech Republic taking silver with 187 points, and Italy bronze with 194 points. A good performance by the USA in this final session saw them finish 4th with 224 points, with Finland 5th on 230 points, and France 6th with 243 points session_5_teams_cumul  David Garcia Ferreras (Spain) is the new individual World Champion, with 19 placing points, ahead of Jyrki Hiltunen (Finland) on 21 points, with Andrea Pirone (Italy) 3rd with 24 points.

2018 Loch-style National – Grafham Water – Saturday-Sunday 15th-16th September

100 competitors, who had pre-qualified through the Loch-style Qualifiers and the Repechage, fished the two-day 2018 Loch-style National at Grafham Water on Saturday – Sunday 15th-16th September.

The top 28 anglers were selected to represent England in the 2019 Loch-style Home Internationals, with the Spring event being held at Grafham Water, and the Autumn event taking place at the Lake of Menteith, Scotland.

Day 1

233 fish were caught on the Saturday in challenging conditions, with new England World Team Manager John Horsey finishing top rod for the day with 7 fish for 14lb 8oz. Team England member Mark Harrison and Tony Curtis finished 2nd and 3rd respectively, also with 7 fish each for 14lb 5oz. All to play for tomorrow, the forecast was predicting blustery winds but plenty of cloud cover. The very best of luck to each and every one of the anglers out there on Sunday!

Final Results

Congratulations to Frank Sumnall on becoming 2018 AT TEFF Loch Style National Champion! 13 points over 2 days was enough to secure the title by a margin of 6 points from the perennial challenger Mark Miles. Congratulations to the top 28 anglers who will now represent England in the 2019 Internationals, which will be held at Grafham in the spring and Lake of Menteith in the Autumn, subject to ratification by TEFFIC.

Official Top 30 (subject to ratification by ATTEFFIC in November): Official result

(Note: The finishing positions have been amended to take into account minor positional errors in the result originally announced. This has not affected those that are in the top 28.)

A huge thank you to Ian Colclough for all his work in coordinating the competition, to everyone who contriuted to the qualifiers, and to Peter Hartley and the team at Grafham Water Fishing Lodge for organising & delivering the final. Without the work these guys do the competition wouldn’t take place. Well done to everyone who took part, challenging conditions on both days to say the least.

Plans for 2019 are under way and we hope to announce the details soon.
