Ringer Baits are the 2022 Angling Trust Feeder National Champions following a hard-fought battle on the River Trent.​

The team of six’s 44-point total was just too good for Derbyshire Angling Federation in second place on 48, with Drennan Barnsley Blacks completing the medal positions after a weight countback separated them from a 60-point tie with Starlets AS.

There were mixed fortunes across the sections with weights of barbel topping 20 kilos claiming top places while other anglers faced a more traditional match targeting silverfish. It was the silvers approach which scored for the Ringer Baits side.

“We practiced hard for this event and knew we couldn’t rely on barbel, so our team plan was simple – get your heads down, fish for the small fish, and catch consistently through the day,” revealed Phil.

“Everyone has us down as a commercial team so a win like this is even more special.”

Victory came courtesy of a section fifth for Phil, three points for brother Steve, six for Adam Wakelin, an eighth place for Grant Howie, nine for Rob Wootton, and Jamie Harrison’s 13-point return from the tough Newark Dyke.

The team will now represent the England at the World Feeder Champs for Clubs in Ireland in 2023, and they’re already relishing the prospect.

“Every angler in the squad has a great record in Ireland from World Championship wins with England to festival wins so we’d have to really fancy our chances. We’ll certainly be putting in the graft that’s for sure.”

Derbyshire Angling Federation will have to wait until early in the new year to find out if they will be joining Ringer Baits in Ireland, with the extra spot potential awarded thanks to the nation’s current high ranking in international feeder events.

However, they were able to celebrate on the day courtesy of providing the top two anglers.

Individual winner Dave Revill took an impressive 23k 900g haul of barbel and chub from permanent peg 27 at East Stoke.

It was a swim he’d drawn back in October so knew the peg well and set about it with a mixture of blockend and groundbait feeders with maggots, casters, and small pieces of worm on the hook.

Starting two thirds of the way across, the local angler caught steadily through the day and with 45 mins to go went out longer to boost his catch with three decent chub and a barbel.

Team-mate Johnathan Trivett’s 20k 750g haul of nine barbel came from peg 29 on the stunning Fiskerton section where he found his swim get stronger in the last couple of hours and he finished with a flurry of barbel just seconds before the final whistle.

* The Angling Trust would like to extend our gratitude to all the stewards and anglers who helped make the day possible, and special thanks goes to Newark & District and Nottingham Piscatorials clubs for the use of their waters.

East Stoke peg 27 ? Surely not?

How can that peg win? It can't be peg 27 on the Newark Fed water at East Stoke?

I think it was Notts piscatorials water at east stoke ... ie upstream of Sheldons.
I think that Dave Clayton (3rd) was on peg 3 on the Newark water.

Yes - the piscos water is fishing much better as it hasn’t had the match pressure.

Do you reckon 5 days rest will be enough?? Newark stretches are going to be so peggy on Saturday ... not that I have any interest in that match 😆

i remember (late 80s) when you needed 3 pounds a person for top ten on a Trent National. And that was before it went downhill in the 90s!!
the only sections that needed more were hoveringham and Holme marsh

Last time I fished Trent, downstream end peg Burton Joyce arrived to find club match already fishing starting next peg downstream of mine.
