ANGLING TRUST FEEDER NATIONAL – PEG SETS REVEALED!
For those interested in the Angling Trust Feeder National this Saturday August 6, here are the pegs sets we’re using for the big event.
Each of the 33 peg sets contain randomly generated sections and pegs for each team of six and will see the anglers take on Trent stretches at Sheldons, East Stoke, Newark Dyke, Fiskerton, and Rolleston.
Saturday’s match will also have an international feel to it, allowing teams a small taster for what they would expect to experience should they win this event and qualify as England’s representatives at the World Club Feeder Champs in 2023.
International rules will include the introduction of a 10-minute prebaiting period before the start of the match, regulations on feeder sizes and hooklengths which can be employed, and the use of natural baits only – maggots, casters, worms, corn, and hemp.
“While this isn’t a fully-fledged, international rules event as we’d have hoped, it’s a step in the right direction towards giving UK anglers the opportunity to try something different and experience how our counterparts on the continent fish,” explained Angling Trust Head of Competitions, Steve Fitzpatrick. “Hopefully, we’ll see some great catches and team success and we promise to listen to competitors, build from here, and create a must-fish annual event in the UK match calendar.”
Following consultation and numerous calls from competitors, we have decided to run individual and section pools on the Feeder National this Saturday August 6, 2022. This will be in addition to the Team Pools payouts.
All 33 team captains are required to bring £120 pools per team (£20 per angler) when they register before the draw at 8am at the Newark Rugby Club.
From this we will pay out the Top 6 individuals plus section winners and second places in each of the six sections. Section pools will be paid by default.
Competitors can also expect a few gongs and bubbly to go with their payouts too, with medals for the top three teams and individuals, plus six section winners.
