2019 Angling Trust Loch Style Team Championships

Draycote Water – Sat 15th – Sun 16th June 2019 

The competition is open to both AT member clubs/groups and non members from the UK and abroad. AT member clubs will receive priority access and a discounted entry fee. The all in entry fee includes fishing permits, boat hire and competition entry fee for 2 days. The 2 day event will take place on 15th & 16th June 2019 at Draycote Fishery with a maximum of 24 team places available offered on a first come first served basis.

Six anglers will form a team, each team will be split into two sub teams of three on both days.

A briefing will be held at Draycote on Day 1 and the presentation held at the fishery at the end of day 2.

The match will be fished to international rules and full catch, measure and release. Boats must return to the jetty in time for the end of each session where score cards will be submitted to organisers. The combined team length in cm over two days will determine the overall result and winning team.

The match will consist of three 3 hour sessions each day. During each session, one angler from each sub team of three will act as a boat steward for another team while the fishing pair will fish together in the same boat with a boat steward from another team. Every angler must act as a boat steward for one session each day, each angler will fish for 6 hours each day and act as a boat steward for 3 hours.

48 Boats for practice on Thursday 13th & Friday 14th June have been reserved at Draycote. Should you wish to book a boat please contact the fishing lodge to book your boats before Friday 7th June. Boats for practice must be paid for direct with the fishery and are not included in the competition entry fees. We may have to limit the number of boats available for practice to 2 per team. This is still to be confirmed however if the number of entries increase as we hope, then there will only be 48 boats available and this restriction would ensure each team has equal opportunity to practice.

Draw

The Draw splits the 32 finalists into 4 groups – A, B, C, D. These groups then fish two sessions and control two sessions on each day. The Draw also identifies a Priority Number, which establishes the precedence that a finalist has over his fellow group members at the start of sessions 1, 3, 5 & 7 to select his start position within his beat. This Priority Number can be used up to 20 mins of the start time for these sessions.

Beat Map & Rules

Fishing will be to ATTEFF International Competition Rules and those Rule Modifications listed below. Copies of the rules are available on this website, but the main points will be briefed on the day.  Fishery rules, beat info and parking areas available via interactive map at:

1. Trout and Grayling

2. Size Limit – minimum 18cm

3. In both the Final (and in any practice days), ATTEFF rules and these Modifications apply.

4. The use of the ‘bung’ is strictly banned, any form of foam or cork bodied indicator fly is not allowed.

30 nations representing four continents battled it out on the waters of Rivers Sarca and Noce in Trentino (Northern Italy).

FIPD-Mouche chose Italy, and more precisely Trentino for the 38th edition of the World Fly Fishing Championships, organised by the Italian FIPSAS in close collaboration with the Trentini section and scheduled from 17th to 23rd September 2018. In the heart of the Alps, in an exceptional natural setting, with a good 2000 km of watercourses, almost 300 lakes, and over 800 square kilometres of natural parks, Trentino is ready to welcome anglers from all over the world.

The river Sarca , the river Noce and the Lake of Cornisello – in western Trentino – were the competition sectors of the international competition. The Terme di Comano were the headquarters of the Championship, a renowned spa resort overlooking the river Sarca, kingdom of  the marble trout as well as that of many other fish species.

 

Countries entered: Australia, Belgium, Bosnia-Herzegovina, Canada, Channel Islands, Croatia, Finland, France, Japan, England, Ireland, Italy, Luxembourg, Malta, Mongolia, New Zealand, Norway, Netherlands, Poland, Portugal, Czech Republic, Romania, Serbia, Slovakia, Slovenia, Spain, Sweden, Ukraine, Hungary, U.S.A.

Session 1

Andrew Scott scored a 6th place with 16 fish in his section on the River Sarca – Tione, with Phil Dixon coming 7th on the River Noce, and Howard Croston 15th on the River Sarca – Pinzolo.  On Lake Cornisello, fishing from the bank, Simon Robinson came 16th, with Scott Nellins 19th on the River Sarca – Arco. Out of 27 teams, England were currently lying in 9th place with 63 placing points. Italy were in 1st place with 13 points, followed by Spain 2nd with 25 points, France in 3rd with 26 points, Poland 4th with 31 points, and the Czech Republic 5th with 34 points. Ireland were 17th with 82 points session_1_teams

Session 2

Simon Robinson came 3rd with 14 fish on the River Sarca – Pinzolo, with Howard Croston 9th on the River Noce, and Scott Nellins 10th on the River Sarca – Tione. Phil Dixon came 12th on the River Sarca – Arco, with Andrew Scott saving a blank on Lake Cornisello to finish 25th. England slipped one place to 10th with 121 placing points. Spain were currently in 1st place with 56 points, ahead of France on 59 points, with Italy 3rd on 60 points, the Czech Republic 4th with 75 points, and the Slovak Republic moving up to 5th with 76 points, thanks to a couple of section wins session_2_teams_cumul Individually, Jordi Oliveras Cortina (Spain) led the field with 4 placing points, which included a 1st place on the lake, in front of Carlo Sciaguri (Italy) on 5 points, and Sebastien Vidal (France) and Frantisek Kouba (Czech Republic), both on 6 points session_2_indiv_cumul

Session 3

A better session for England saw Howard Croston winning his section on the River Sarca – Arco with 13 fish, plus a 5th place for Andrew Scott on the River Sarca – Pinzolo, and 6th for Phil Dixon on the River Sarca – Tione. Although Simon Robinson came 23rd on the River Noce and Scott Nellins was one of the 50% of the field who blanked on an increasingly difficult lake sector, England still moved up to 8th place. Spain held onto their first place with 94 points, ahead of Italy on 115 points, with France and the Czech Republic both on 123 points session_3_teams_cumul The leading individuals changed, with Vojtech Ungr (Czech Republic) in 1st place with 9 points, ahead of Igor Lukasik (Slovak Republic), Jyrki Hiltunen (Finland), Carlo Sciaguri (Italy) and Jure Osolin (Slovenia) all on 12 points session_3_indiv_cumul

Session 4

This session saw some more good performances from England, with Andrew Scott coming 3rd on the River Noce, and Phil Dixon saving a blank on Lake Cornisello to finish 7th, where again, half the field failed to catch. Scott Nellins came 10th on the River Sarca – Ponzolo, Simon Robinson 11th on the Sarca – Arco and Howard Croston 16th on the Sarca – Tione. Even so, England slipped to 9th place overall with 230 placing points, as it got increasingly tight at the top. With one session to go, Spain and Italy both had 164 points, with the Czechs just 4 points behind on 168, ahead of Poland on 192 and France on 194 session_4teams_cumul Individually, Jyrki Hiltunen (Finland) was currently 1st with 16 points, one point ahead of Igor Lukasik (Slovak Republic), David Garcia Ferreras (Spain), and Jure Osolin (Slovenia) session_4indiv_cumul

Session 5

The final session saw Andrew Scott get a 5th place on the River Sarca – Arco, with Simon Robinson coming 10th on the Sarca – Tione, and Phil Dixon 19th on the Sarca – Pinzolo. On the River Noce Scott Nellins came 19th, but Lake Cornisello continued to prove difficult, with Howard Croston one of the 10 who failed to catch. England finished the Championships at 9th place on 310 placing points, with Ireland 13th on 369 points. There was little to split the top three teams, but a good performance by Spain saw them become the 2018 World Champions with 182 points, with the Czech Republic taking silver with 187 points, and Italy bronze with 194 points. A good performance by the USA in this final session saw them finish 4th with 224 points, with Finland 5th on 230 points, and France 6th with 243 points session_5_teams_cumul  David Garcia Ferreras (Spain) is the new individual World Champion, with 19 placing points, ahead of Jyrki Hiltunen (Finland) on 21 points, with Andrea Pirone (Italy) 3rd with 24 points. England’s best performer was Andrew Scott, who came 20th, with Phil Dixon 31st session_5_indiv_cumul

Captain/Manager Paul Page reports: “This year the Team’s practice accommodation was at one of the Championship Hotels which was situated adjacent to the main practice beat on the River Sarca between Competition Sectors I & III. This gave Team members continuous access for practice throughout the 8 days prior to the start of Championship Session 1.

The Team had 5 days of guided practice on all of the practice waters (with Italian guide Roberto Spiritelli); these were generally sections of rivers between the Championship Sectors and a Lake which was, unfortunately, nothing like the Championship Lake. During the 3 unguided days immediately before the start of Session 1, Team members had the opportunity to refresh their fly boxes, rest after 5 days continuous practice, prepare kit for the start of the Championship and undertake any last minute practice that they felt they needed.

Fips Mouche’s new software programme for the Draw was used for the first time at a World Championship, and to all intents and purposes provided the Team with a fair draw and distribution of pegs. The peg arrangements on Lake Cornisello were disappointing due to the inaccessibility of large portions of the bank of this high altitude Alpine lake. As a result, groups of competitors were confined to isolated stretches of the bank with no peg rotation into other competition stretches.

The Team were in 9th position after session 1, improving to 8th and then falling back to 9th at the finish. The Team’s overall performance was let down by their results on the lake – this included 2 blanks, which at World level is very difficult to carry on one sector. This resulted in a total of 106 placing points for the Lake Sector, accounting for a third of the Team’s final total of 310 placing points for all 5 Sectors and Sessions.

Had the Team managed to perform to their potential on the lake and done as well as the 5th place team on the lake they could have had a total of 44 Lake Sector placing points and finished 7th overall (just behind France).”

2018 Loch-style National – Grafham Water – Saturday-Sunday 15th-16th September

100 competitors, who had pre-qualified through the Loch-style Qualifiers and the Repechage, fished the two-day 2018 Loch-style National at Grafham Water on Saturday – Sunday 15th-16th September.

The top 28 anglers were selected to represent England in the 2019 Loch-style Home Internationals, with the Spring event being held at Grafham Water, and the Autumn event taking place at the Lake of Menteith, Scotland.

Day 1

233 fish were caught on the Saturday in challenging conditions, with new England World Team Manager John Horsey finishing top rod for the day with 7 fish for 14lb 8oz. Team England member Mark Harrison and Tony Curtis finished 2nd and 3rd respectively, also with 7 fish each for 14lb 5oz. All to play for tomorrow, the forecast was predicting blustery winds but plenty of cloud cover. The very best of luck to each and every one of the anglers out there on Sunday!

Final Results

Congratulations to Frank Sumnall on becoming 2018 AT TEFF Loch Style National Champion! 13 points over 2 days was enough to secure the title by a margin of 6 points from the perennial challenger Mark Miles. Congratulations to the top 28 anglers who will now represent England in the 2019 Internationals, which will be held at Grafham in the spring and Lake of Menteith in the Autumn, subject to ratification by TEFFIC.

Official Top 30 (subject to ratification by ATTEFFIC in November): Official result

(Note: The finishing positions have been amended to take into account minor positional errors in the result originally announced. This has not affected those that are in the top 28.)

A huge thank you to Ian Colclough for all his work in coordinating the competition, to everyone who contriuted to the qualifiers, and to Peter Hartley and the team at Grafham Water Fishing Lodge for organising & delivering the final. Without the work these guys do the competition wouldn’t take place. Well done to everyone who took part, challenging conditions on both days to say the least.

Plans for 2019 are under way and we hope to announce the details soon.

Competition Fly Fishing legend John Horsey appointed as new Team England World Team Manager

The Angling Trust has announced that experienced international angler John Horsey has been appointed as the manager of next year’s England World Team. John will join Team England Fly Fishing Committee with immediate effect and take up the role of manager following the 2018 FIPS-Mouche World Championships in September 2018.

John’s experience of international fishing is second to none having represented England in FIPS-Mouche World and European Championships on no less than 23 occasions. John has also represented England on 18 occasions in IFFA Loch Style Internationals and 2 IFFA River internationals. His domestic successes include winning both the Loch Style and Rivers National Championships.

John will bring a vast amount of experience and expertise to the role and his first task as manager will be to prepare the team to compete in the FIPS-Mouche World Fly Fishing Championship in Tasmania in November 2019.

John Horsey said Competition fly fishing has been a huge part of my life for the last 30 years. Representing Team England has always been my ambition and I have been fortunate to have done this many times. I feel that the time has now come to change roles at World Level from competitor to manager and I am really looking forward to this new challenge. Tasmania could not be a better place to start, as I have fished the waters and run fishing clinics there many times. Thanks to the new Elite Performance Programme, we have what I believe is the right group of anglers to have a serious chance of bringing home a medal.”

Current World Team Manager Paul Page will take the helm of Team England’s European team for 2019 and will lead the team as they head to Montenegro in July to compete in the FIPS-Mouche European Championships.

Paul Page said; “The Fips-Mouche Competition Calendar is changing over the next few years and I’m pleased that we have been able to strengthen our Management Team to respond to the new challenges ahead. John has been in many of the England Teams that I have managed over the years and brings the right skills and experience to help us concentrate on our future team building and success.”

Congratulations to Scotland on their victory.

Full Results: iffa2018autumn

AT Team England FF manager Paul Angell reports: 3 days of practice in differing weather conditions showed that there were fish widely spread throughout the reservoir and that many of the fish were concentrated in the upper layers of the water. English rods found that boobies fished on intermediate lines would be the first line of attack with dries also working well when the wind decreased and temperatures rose. 

The start of the International saw boats scatter with numbers starting around the cages, others heading to the Coves and the Hafoty Shore and some drifting across the middle of the lake. It quickly became obvious that the fishing was not going to be easy and boats started moving to alternative areas to try to find feeding fish. This was to continue throughout the match, with some anglers building good scores whilst others struggled to boat fish.

By the 6pm finish, the 56 competitors had caught a total of 265 fish giving a rod average of 4.7 

As England Manager, I consider that the team worked together extremely well under the excellent leadership of experienced captain John Horsey, to produce a great team spirit.  Practice had gone well but match day found us an average of a fish a man behind the winning Scottish team. 

The England Team would like to thank their clothing sponsors Craghoppers and Snowbee for their support, also Guide Fly Fishing, Fulling Mill, Snowbee and Costa Sunglasses for their continued support with tackle and other essential equipment.
