I was fortunate to fish this last year for Maggotdrowning.com and I must say that if you get asked to fish this event in the future do so.

Although there are some very good and talented teams they are more than happy to open up and talk you through things. Ask the anglers to show you their rigs and why they have them set the way they do? Ask them about GB mixes and what they are trying to achieve. The questions are endless but you will find all the anglers really helpful.

The only pressure really is what you put on yourselves. Sometimes you try too hard.

Food for thought, last year we were just involved to make up the teams which was a great experience, however when we got together we were all thinking of fishing Ash and Pines no one had thought about the specimen lake! Hence as a team we drew straws, luckily I had brought a method feeder rod as I drew the short straw. As a team have you decided who is fishing what lake as this will give you an advantage on the day? If you end up on the specimen lake I would use the method feeder from the off and stick with it. Wishing you all well and that team has the ability to beat all the others and if you don't you will all still be better looking than the Drennen team hahaha

I think Peter was tempted by the speci lake, but we'll have to wait and see [;)]

I've also ordered the team a set of Maggotdrowning Hoodies to keep them warm and improve their looks [:D]
