GURU Team England

Saturday saw the Guru England Under 15’s Trial Assessment and the Guru Angling Trust Talent Pathway Inter Regional Final take place at Barston Lakes, Solihull. Amazingly, 19 of these were actually under 15 years of age and took part in the England trial. In total there were 38 young anglers from the North, Midlands and South battling it out for the Talent Pathway Inter Regional honours.

Massive congratulations to Team Midlands on the win and to the top three individuals. As you can see the weights have been mega tight with some impressive weights in just four hours fishing.

Excellent news with Guru supporting our Junior teams. These lads are the future of angling and need supporting through their development through the age groups. I fished against a few of the last crop in the annual Joseph James Law match at Alders Farm last year, not only were they very good thinking anglers but also very polite and inquisitive young men.

Enjoy the experience lads and good luck in Spain.
