Browns Carp Team England’s ladies have left our shores at the weekend to head over to France to compete in the first ever FIPSed ladies World Carp Cup.

The event, taking place near Perpignan in the south of France, will be contested by the top ranked carp fishing nations from England, France, Holland, Russia and Romania.

England Captain Bev Clifford said “It’s a real honour to be stepping up to represent our country at this level. Women’s Carp fishing has come on immeasurably over the last few years, a lot of it down to the profile and progress of Carp Team England. We are going out to win this event and will give it everything we’ve got”.

The event takes place between 29th May and 1st June and will be widely reported through social media with coverage of the event on television in June.

The competition will be fierce, and France as the home nation will have the advantage, but England are a strong team with a good track record in international competition fishing, having already won the Anglo/Welsh Cup three times and also the European Tri-Nations. A gold in the World Cup would be the icing on the cake for the talented England team and would make history for England as being the first country to win gold in both the men’s and women disciplines.

“It's the first event of its kind and is a significant landmark in the history of female competition Carp fishing” announced England Manager and ladies coach Rob Hughes. He added “The ladies international competition scene is only three years old, started off by England and Wales then later joined by Holland to make it fully European. It’s an honour to have been working with the international governing body FIPSed organisation to host a full world class event which has now been ratified and we’re really looking forward to seeing this historic event come to fruition”.

Team England Ladies are supported by Browns Angling, Linear Fisheries and Euro Carp Tours who have helped them with funding and logistics to allow them to compete.
