Let’s Fish! End of Season Team Event 2021

Sensas Smithys Black
  • An opportunity for those who, due to the pandemic, have missed out on the opportunity of potential trials or in formally representing England to take part in a team event with an international flavour. Please note that this event is not being formally classified as a full junior international and international caps etc will not be awarded.

  • An opportunity for some of the Talent Pathway coaching team to observe new up and coming fishing talent ahead of potential future selection for the Talent Pathway programme (ideal for those who may be interested in exploring that route at some stage in future).

  • An opportunity to begin to develop future pathways for young anglers within Wales.

  • An opportunity to allow some promising cadets and younger juniors with obvious potential a taste of what the future could potentially  hold for them in fishing, if that is a path that they may want in future to choose to take.

Let's Fish! End of Year Team Event


Due to non availability, a small number of team amendments have been made and the number of teams reduced by one in each category which does make parking and pegging a little easier from an organisational viewpoint. The teams are as set out below. Should anyone subsequently drop out, the selectors retain the right to tweak teams accordingly and if necessary will bring into  team the reserves on standby.
