AT TEFF 2021/22 Season Budget

The AT TEFF Executive has recently concluded its budget for the 2021/22 Season which projects that the cost of England representation in World, European, 5 Nations, Loch, River and Bank Internationals in 2022 will be approximately £70,000 in total. The majority of this cost, approximately £57,500, will be borne by the Team Members and Managers. The remaining cost will be funded from AT TEFF grants distributed from the proceeds of the EPP League, Qualifiers and National Finals organised by AT TEFF Volunteers as part of the England Team selection process.

Entry fees for the 2021/22 season have been set at £27.50 per event (a reduction on previous years). Around 700 entries are anticipated from the League, Qualifiers and National finals.

The budgeted Income from entry fees is £29,500, of which £15,500 will be used to cover £5,000 of Volunteer organisers out-of-pocket expenses; £7,000 Loch and River National Final fishing and supper costs; and £3,500 other expenses. The remaining £14,000 will be available to support our competitive activities.

For 2022, the AT TEFF grants will be applied to the Teams at a rate of £200 pp.

In summary, AT TEFF’s total budget for the season is £87,000 income, £85,500 expenditure, with £1,500 being held in reserve.

AT TEFF 2022 Bank International Team & Captain

Posted in Uncategorized | Comments Off on AT TEFF 2022 Bank International Team & Captain

Stephen Peart stands down as Loch-style Team Manager

AT TEFF has been informed by Stephen that he has stood down from his volunteer role as manager of one of the loch-style teams.

His track record was second to none, as he managed the team on six occasions, gaining gold medals at Lough Owel in 2014, Menteith in 2017, and Grafham in 2019. He was also involved in organising the recent Pro/Am events at Chew and Draycote, raising over £1200 to go towards team funds.

I’m sure you will join us in thanking Stephen for his dedication to our sport over the years he has been involved, not only as manager but also as a volunteer of many years. He will be sorely missed. We wish him well for the future, and hopefully we shall see him again around the loch-style competition scene in future years…

On behalf of Angling Trust Team England Fly Fishing Thank You!

Ian Colclough
Acting Secretary AT TEFF

Bank National Championship Update

The Covid Pandemic has disrupted the normal timetable and progression of events that lead to the identification of a Team to represent England in Bank Internationals. As a consequence, the recent Bank National Final has produced an England Team for October 2022 from Qualifiers etc. that started back in 2019.

The usual timetable and progression of events is for:

Qualifiers to be held November – March.

Semis to be held April.  

Final to be held in May, for the winners to represent England in October that year.

To restore this timetable, the 2022 Bank National Championship will start with Qualifiers in November 2022 leading to a final in May 2023. This will result in the Team to represent England in the 2023 Bank International to be hosted by England.

To support the Bank International Team, we are considering to take the opportunity during January – April 2022 to organise Cash Prized Bank Fundraising events, with the proceeds being ringfenced for the benefit of Bank International Team Members. This is still work in progress and the details will be posted by the Executive when confirmed.

5NFFC/EPP Team Selection Update

After reviewing the progress of the proposed 2021 5N League, the selection of individuals to form future England 5N Teams will be incorporated into the Elite Performance Programme (EPP).

The impact of COVID restrictions has inevitably disrupted the normal timetables for selection and representation of World and European teams. We now need to bring these back in synch and incorporate the 5NFFC team selection.

For 2022 Teams:

World – selected from recent 2021 EPP

European – carried over from 2019 EPP selection

5NFFC – selection options being considered by ATTEFF exec

For 2023 Teams:

World – to be selected from 2022 EPP

European – selected from the recent 2021 EPP

5NFFC – 1 or 2 teams to be selected from 2022 EPP

For 2024, all team selections will be made from the 2023 EPP.

A Huge ‘Thank You’ to Lee Cartmail

The AT TEFF Executive would like to thank Lee Cartmail for his dedicated service as a volunteer. Lee began organising the Bank Qualifiers back in 2018/19, and also introduced a series of fundraising events to help support the team financially. I’m sure that all those that knew Lee will join us in thanking him for all this hard work and wish him well for the future.

AT TEFF 2021 Bank National

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.
