Angling Trust Team England Fly Fishing announced today that European Team member Bernie Maher has been appointed the European Team Captain and Manager for the 2021 European Championship in Roros, Norway.
The 2021 European Championship is the rolled-over 2020 Championship, which was cancelled due to the Covid 19 pandemic.
Bernie has represented England at World, European, Commonwealth and Home International Championships during the last 15 years and brings a wide range of skills to both team management and development.
“ Whilst it was sad to hear that Andy Croucher could no longer fulfil the role of captain and manager of the England team for the European Championships in Norway in 2021, we are pleased to have someone with the wealth of experience that Bernie has step into this position. Bernie has competed at the highest level and his knowledge and experience of competition fishing at World, European and Commonwealth level will be a huge asset to the team. We wish Bernie and the team all the best in Norway in 2021.”
Andy Taylor, Angling Trust, Competitions Support Officer.
” I feel extremely honoured and humbled to have been offered the role of Captain and Manager of the England Fly Fishing Team to Norway in July 2021. The fishing will be challenging in Norway, and I have complete confidence in every member of the European Team, and from my part I will make a positive contribution.”
