The regional qualifying round of the rivers competition that ultimately decides who will represent England in International events was held on the 12th May at Fingle Bridge on the River Teign. The Peninsula Federation organizes this annual event and it was attended by anglers from all over the country.
The winner of the Snowbee Perpetual trophy was local angler Alex Bobba from Cullompton, who caught 18 trout in only 31/2 hours of fishing in the morning session. The top anglers will now go on to the National Final to be held on The River Dart in July where the top 5 anglers will represent England. The overall winner of the morning and afternoon sessions was John Tyzack from Stockport.
