TP Final 1 Group 2019


The Tackle Guru Angling Trust Talent Pathway is back and looks set to be bigger than ever! We’re really pleased to announce our continued support to this amazing programme which focusses on improving young anglers’ key skills and abilities through coaching sessions with some of the best anglers in the business!

Last year we kitted out all participants with a Guru Talent Pathway pack, containing an array of terminal tackle required for all four sessions, along with groundbait from our friends at Mainline Match! Next year’s programme will be no different, every angler will receive a pack and the opportunity to win a wide range of Tackle Guru prizes at the Inter Regional Final!


Here’s a bit more information about the Pathway and how you can get involved with the 2020 programme…

Talent Pathway – What Is It?

The Talent Pathway is fantastic opportunity for young match anglers to enhance their skills and benefit from unique one to one/group coaching sessions from topflight match stars and England Internationals. The Pathway consists of three regional coaching sessions held in the North, Midlands and South, concluding with an Inter-Regional Final held later in the year where the three regions battle it out and put all their lessons and skills to the test!
