Barnsley & District take the Championship title at the inaugural Angling Trust Team Commercial Stillwater Championship sponsored by Garbolino & Lindholme Lakes


Barnsley & District Team Champions 2013

It proved to be a very successful day for Barnsley & District at the inagural Angling Trust Team Commercial Stillwater Championship on Saturday 17th August 2013. Barnsley & District came out on top finishing in Championship position with a fantastic weight recorded of 428.365 kg for their 10 man team. Barnsley & District really showed that their local knowledge and experience of fishing commercials paid off.

The Team Stillwater Championship was split over three Fisheries, Garbolino Lindholme Lakes, Hayfield Lakes and Daiwa Hallcroft Fishery and the results being decided on weight rather than points for the 18 teams who took part was going to make this an interesting match, and a good weight from any individual on the day could help seal a team win. Methods and tactics varied on the day over the three venues with most anglers feeding half way out, then changing tactics to feed into the margins when the catches slowed down, with some good catches being recorded overall.

In runner up position was Matrix Dynamite Trentmen with 360.295 kg, and in third place was Garbolino Lindholme B Team with 352.745 kg.

Also a huge thank you to all the staff at Hallcroft Fishery, Hayfield Lakes and Garbolino Lindholme Lakes for all their hard work building up to the Championship, and on the day of the event.

This competition was created to support the needs of anglers who want to put team fishing on commercial venues, and this year saw some brand new teams join the Angling Trust in order to fish this event. Next year the Angling Trust Team Commercial Stillwater Championship will be split between Heronbrook Fishery and Cudmore Fishery, Staffordshire on Saturday 16th August. This Championship is open to any clubs/associations affiliated to the Angling Trust.
