The Angling Trust reports: This year’s Home International Bank competition is hosted by Garnffrwd trout fishery in Wales, Wednesday 19th October. The teams from Wales, England, Scotland and Ireland have been on the venue for official practice Mon 17th and today, dialling into the most likely methods and techniques to compete with tomorrow.
Representing AT TEFF are: Mark Harrison (captain), Andy Taylor, Phil Shaw-Browne, James Stephenson, Josh Piper, Tim Joyce and Anthony Meadows, managed by Paul Page.
The weather always plays its part in match fishing, and tomorrow’s forecast is for a mainly overcast day with light winds, usually a good scenario for targeting rainbow trout, and as the fish have been pressured during practice, this all helps. Garnffrwd also have a stocking of sparctic trout, a cross between brook trout and arctic char, they’re stunning looking fish, with distinct marking and fantastic colours. However, they do favour cooler weather, yet it’s likely some of the guys will manage to net a few during the match.
We’ve more pictures to follow this evening from this afternoon, they will accompany the details from this evening’s draw, Ceri Jones was on hand to do the official pictures, however the images here will give our comps-savvy audience some idea of the nature of the venue and general atmosphere of the guys fishing.
