The Angling Trust has announced details of its 2015 Sea Angling England Talent Pathway programme and is inviting anglers to apply for a place on the programme now.
The programme provides opportunities for young sea anglers to showcase their skills and talent working alongside current England managers and coaches while learning about tactics and techniques required for international angling.
There is a maximum of 15 places available and anglers must submit an application form to be considered. The purpose of the programme is to educate anglers about international fishing, teach them the skills required to compete at international level and support young sea angler’s ambitions of representing England at major championships at home and abroad.
The programme consists of a series of coaching sessions which are free to attend, and are led by current Team England Junior and Youth Managers and Coaches.
The programme will be based on the South coast and delivered at four different venues spread throughout the summer;
- Event 1: Lymington in late July
- Event 2: Gosport in early August
- Event 3: Deal in late August
- Event 4: Bexhill in mid September
Team England member Callum Graham said “It’s not every day young anglers get the chance to have one-on-one tuition from some of the countries greatest sea anglers. The Talent Pathway is an excellent programme for up and coming anglers; helping them to develop and hone their skills, and maybe even get the privilege to represent their country. An opportunity not to be missed!”
Team England’s Chris Clark said “The Talent Pathway offers a golden opportunity for any young person wanting to represent their country or brush up on their skills to mix with like-minded young anglers and get tuition from some of the top anglers in the country.’’
