Chris Bobby, Captain of Greenwell Persuaders said: “We all really enjoyed the last AT Loch-Style Championship two years ago at Draycote. It is the most dynamic reservoir-based event as after each 3-hour session you meet up and share info with your team. Each day you fish two sessions with one of your teammates and in the other session you are a boatman and so get the chance to see what other teams are doing. Draycote has been fishing really well recently and I am looking forward to some great top of the water sport.”
Daniel Williams said: “It was so reassuring speaking with prospective team captains and competitors as we began rearranging the date for this event. Everyone is so enthusiastic to get back out on the water, it has been a pleasure listening to many recollections as to why so many competitors love this event.
“We have had to scale back a little as part of our duty of care to competitors and prerequisite of keeping everything within Covid-19 guidelines. However, we are now fully up and running with the event, so good luck and tight lines to all who compete.”
