With perch, skimmers, bream, catfish the main target species, England set out to establish a plan for the week ahead, however, practice sessions proved to be challenging. The team worked hard to find the right approach feeding joker, chopped worm and caster in lean mix which resulted in catches of smaller fish, the aim however was to supplement those catches with the bigger bream, but they proved to be elusive throughout the competition.

On Day 1 England struggled to find the fish and recorded 45 points which placed them in 9th position. The team’s faith in their approach was carried through to Day 2 but increasing the quantity of worms earlier in the match gave England a much improved result with 37 points and a 4th place finish on the day. England finished the competition with 82 points and an overall 8th place in the competition.
