Elinor Fishery hosted this year’s AT TEFF Bank National, with 27 anglers fishing hard in awkward conditions for the prestigious trophy and places in the AT TEFF England bank team for 2022.
Congratulations James Stephenson on taking 1st place, Josh Piper on his runner-up position, and Andy Taylor for pushing them hard for 3rd.
Well done Lee Cartmail on running the event so smoothly, as well as all the guys who either fished or stewarded.
Lee Cartmail reports: 27 anglers made Sunday’s National Final at Elinor, bright sunshine and strong winds were not ideal conditions that day. Elinor is a phenomenal fishery and has a competition track record second to none. It had been well stocked leading up to this event, but wasn’t giving her fish up lightly on Sunday and rightly so, England caps have to be earned. Anglers needed to dig in deep and make every chance count, fine margins separated the top 9 anglers. I’d personally like to thank Ed Foster for hosting a superb venue and supplying some of his regulars to control today. Also, huge thanks to Kirsty from the Angling Trust for controlling again today, and all the work she does behind the scenes.
