The Angling Trust reports: The teams have been piped down to the pegs and this year’s Championship is under way.
We’ll aim to keep you updated as the match unveils, however, no official results will be available until they’re ratified this evening.
The klaxons sounded and lines are looping out across the lake, let’s see what the day brings.
Good luck to all.
The first of the sessions completed and our competitors have moved onto the second.
The rough report for session one is: Josh Piper has 2, Tyler Hay 2, Rhys Wadley 2/3, Kevin Lafford 1 & Shane Bird 1.
Apologies for the low quality photos, it’s quite a large lake to cover from the lodge.
The second session concluded, Brian Keer has one as have Kevin Andrews and Rhys Wadley.
Josh Piper is now on three fish adding to the first session score. Andy Taylor landed two in this session and Mark Harrison’s off the mark too.
PM update for the Bank International, the current position after lunch is still provisional, however it’s safe to say that Wales & Eire are both on thirteen fish, while England & Scotland are on eight.
It’s looking like Wales have the handle on the day, with Eire pushing for second, whilst England & Scotland tussle for third.
Conditions are bright, but the wind has lifted considerably.
This year’s Home International Bank competition is fished and results in, congratulations to Ireland on a fantastic performance pipping host nation Wales into Silver, this was by a single fish and 600 fish points. England landed the Bronze by three fish and 2460 points, over Scotland.
