The Angling Trust reports: The Angling Trust has announced the appointment of Jeremy Lucas as the manager of England Fly Fishing Rivers’ team. Jeremy will start with immediate effect and replace the vastly experienced Mike Tinnion.
Jeremy has a wealth of experience at the highest level and has represented England on no fewer than 17 occasions, 11 of which have been in IFFA Internationals and on six occasions in FIPS Mouche World and European Championships.
Jeremy said: “I am so excited by the challenge that lies ahead. Managing England is what I have wanted since I retired from international selection in 2009.
“Recent results have not been what we would have hoped for and I want to begin the process of improvement, in phase with the great skills possessed by our competitors, such that we are world class again.”
The 2017 Rivers International on the River Ebbw in Wales next June will be Jeremy’s first as a manager and England will go in search of their first win in the competition since 2010.
