Last year saw our most well attended Nationals for nearly a decade and in line with this continued success, the Angling Trust is thrilled to announce the Angling Trust Feeder National, which will take place on the Gloucester Canal on Sunday 23rd August 2020.

The format for the competition will follow International rules as closely as possible and will be a teams of six event, with a £120 entry fee. All Angling Trust member clubs will be eligible to fish and the winning side will claim the opportunity to fish in the FIPS-ED World Feeder Club Championships in Either Bulgaria or the Ukraine in 2021.

Following this move the decision has also been made to shift the qualification for the FIPS-ED World Float Club Championship to a dedicated match. This will be the already well established Sensas Challenge in 2020 and qualification will go to the highest ranked English team for their chance to fish in either Slovenia or Italy in 2021.
