Angling Trust Feeder National Championships 2021
Sunday 22nd August 2021
A good turnout of 20 teams made the Angling Trusts inaugural Feeder National a keenly fought contest. Overnight rain added a bit of colour to the canal between Netheridge and Saul Junction and meant the skimmers and bream fed throughout the length with good weights recorded on most of the sections. Favourite to win the match was Doug Jackson (Rive Fishermania) from his end peg 369 on B Section at Castle Lane after admitting to 15Kg after 2 hours, but a manic last 90 minutes for 2 anglers on adjacent pegs 209 and 211 on B section snatched victory away from Doug. John Harvey (Preston Innovations Thatchers) had a last gasp bream to thank, for just pipping Matt Barnett (Drennan Bordon) to a Gold Medal with a weight of 30.890Kg to Matt’s 30.530Kg. John’s section win proved invaluable as he helped Preston Innovations Thatchers to the team win and the title of Feeder National Champions 2021 with a penalty points total of 35pts. Thatchers will now be invited to fish the next available World Club Feeder Championships. Drennan Bordon were close behind and finished as Runners Up with 39pts and Browning Team Ossett were third with 42pts.
