Last time round

Thirty-two teams had travelled from around the country to the River Avon for the 2022 Division 2 National. Although the weights didn't show the true potential of the river, there was some good fishing to be had in places. Stroud as a team had ten very consistent results, with six anglers in the top ten of their sections. Greg Wood was the standout performer taking both H section on the common, and Individual Champion honours with a great weight of 12kg. Greg drew favoured peg 6 on Evesham Common and made no mistakes taking skimmers and pommies on the groundbait feeder. Second on the day was local favourites Sensas Manor Angling who carded a fantastic 110 points. Sensas had five anglers in the top ten of their sections. Finally third by the finest of margins was Drennan North West. Both Drennan and Peterborough carded 112 points, but Drennan won the day on weight countback 23.665kg to 23.265kg.
