Riverfest press release severn trent 2018

The Angling Trust is pleased to announce that for this year’s RiverFest competition, we will be working very closely with Severn Trent Water in a partnership that will allow us to continue to improve the event.

Angling Trust Ambassador and competition creator Dave Harrell said: “Severn Trent Water has done a fantastic job with the quality of the river water throughout its catchment area. Over the past few years it has been very noticeable how many fish are now in our rivers, in very big numbers and in different year classes. The match weights have reflected this huge improvement and the resurgence of this year’s final venue, the River Severn at Shrewsbury, is testimony to the great work that has been done.”

Meirion Turner, Head of Production at Severn Trent, said: “We’re delighted to support RiverFest 2018 and we’re so pleased that several of the qualifiers and the final itself will be happening at venues within our catchment. Caring for our local environment is something that we care passionately about and we’re really proud that the work we’ve done to help improve river water quality in our area has led to more fish, better angling and subsequently this fishing competition. Good luck to all those who enter!”

Angling Trust Competitions Development Manager James Lewis added: “Severn Trent Water’s support of RiverFest is invaluable and we are looking forward to working together to continue the development of this great competition. In addition to the media developments we put in place in 2017, this year’s final and some of the qualifiers will be professionally filmed for us by Catch More Media. The two-day format lends itself to entertaining viewing with a great line up of anglers and plenty of fish to go for in the final.”
