Angling Trust Carp Team England take centre stage in the Six Nations International in France


Carp team England 6 nations 2016


Angling Trust Carp Team England once again proved their might on the international stage with a convincing one / two victory in the recent six nations international event in France. Teams from Italy France Holland Ukraine Lithuania and England took part.

The match took place at Lac du Bourdon, the venue which will host the full World Championships in September.

A win in both sections for the English gave top slot places to Billy Flowers / Jamie Londors and Chris Holmes / Tom Maker and put England in a first and second position overall with Mathieu Neyrat / Mathieu Farge of home nation France third on the podium.

England manager and Angling Trust APO Rob Hughes said "It was technically a very difficult match to win and having not fished the venue before we had to learn on the job and adapt very quickly. We went there hoping for a podium place. To take the overall victory shows how well the squad is growing in strength and maturity. The French are an impressive team and they had the home advantage. To beat them on their home ground is, as you can imagine, very pleasing”.

The win in France makes it three victories on the run for Hughes and the newly formed team following their World Championship victory last year in Spain, and the ladies team win in the Home Nations match against Wales last month.

The World Championship takes place in France in September where 25 nations will compete for the biggest title in competition carp fishing.
