The venues selected were Waskerley and Smiddy Shaw reservoirs, Co Durham. The fishing was arranged by Graham Robinson and members of the North West Durham Anglers Syndicate.
Despite strong winds and bright sunshine, fish were landed at both venues. The opportunity was also taken for a brief team talk by Manager Alan Jenkins, along with the presentation of Team England shirts and badges to new caps Bart Farmer and Rob Frame.
Preparations are now well in hand for the second Bank International which will be held on 19th October 2011, organised by hosts Trout Anglers Federation Ireland (TAFI).
