Get Fishing is the Angling Trust’s campaign to get more people fishing more often. Each year we run hundreds of events for all ages and abilities. They are funded by the Environment Agency from fishing licence income.
Beginner angling events - want to get into fishing? Get back into angling, find out where to go fishing, accessible venues, who to go fishing with, tackle to use to start fishing and how to go fishing for the first time.
This match was fished entirely on Molands Lake and though plenty of large carp were visible during the day very few were caught in the red hot conditions. After the draw the night before England Ladies International Samantha Sim was set up as favorite to win after being drawn peg 45 on scarecrow point. And so it proved and Sam won at a canter, fishing a pellet feeder all day Sam caught 37.675Kg of F1’s to regain the title of Ladies National Champion for 2021. England team mate, Kayleigh Smith, just back from her England Carp debut took second place from peg 55 with 22.750Kg which included the biggest carp of the day at 6.020Kg and Shannon Swallow was 3rd form peg 21 with 21.300Kg.
The Angling Trust would like to thank John Burchall and his team at Packington Somers for their help and assistance on the day.
