2010 Match Fishing Team Championship
14 teams of five (70 pegs)

The Warwickshire Avon had dropped still further for the 2010 Match Fishing Team Championship and was only around six inches on when the match got underway.

The Maver Bait Tech team comprising Wayne Swinscoe, Gary Miller, Chris Vandervleit, Dean Barlow and Chris Jenkinson made very few mistakes and finished seven points clear of its nearest challenger, finishing on 59 points.

Second place, with 52 points, went to Leicester based Quorn VDE, a five man team which included Milan based Milo Columbo and Surrey based Darren Davies. Third was Maver Barnsley with 50 points ahead of National champions Kamasan Starlets on 47 and Saints on 45.

Individually, Shakespeare’s Michael Buchwalder improved on his runner up spot last year by taking top position this time round with 14-7-0 of roach on bloodworm from downstream end peg 80. Dean Barlow made good use of the top upstream end peg and finished with 14-3-0, a catch which included a 4lb tench as well as some quality roach and third place went to Bob Bates of Mark One Sensas who included a big barbel in his 13-3-0 total.
