The Ladies World Championship event was held on the River Fiuma Mandria in Berreto near Palma, Italy on 22nd and 23rd August 2009. The Subfish Team England Ladies were Sandra Scotthorne, Emma Pickering, Wendy Locker, Helen Dagnall, Claire Dagnall, Samantha Perkins and Kayleigh Smith, managed by Tommy Pickering.

Angling Trust Fishing NewsAfter five days practice the team were the favourites, and caught more fish than anyone else. The team had a method that was working well and were quite confident. The match came, but the plan didn’t work on day one with the team finishing in 8th position. Unfortunately, because of the new system when there are more than 15 teams taking part the sections are split into two, and this meant that the team were only a few points behind and still had the chance to fish for a medal, so they changed the method a fraction. After two hours on day two the team had nine points and thought they were in the silver medal position, but sadly they stopped catching, fell behind and finished 10 points off a medal. At the end of the event Subfish Team England Ladies finished in 7th position.

Team Positions:
1st place – Germany
2nd place – Czech Republic
3rd place - Hungary

Tommy Pickering, Subfish Team England Ladies Manager, stated “The only chance we had was individual gold and Emma Pickering had won her section on day one. On day two Emma hooked a big fish and played it for 15 mins but it came off near the net. If she had caught it she would have been World Champion, and if she hadn’t hooked it she might have still been World Champion as she would have had time to net more fish. We are all gutted to miss out this year, but it is something that I have seen coming to be fair. When I took over 8 years ago we won 3 gold medals over 4 years, and it was easier in those days. Unfortunately now all the other teams have gone away and improved. Also all the other teams have managers, coaches and hold friendly international events. More of the teams nowadays are unbelieveable, and full credit to them that they have caught us up, but one of our problems is we don’t fish to FIPS rules. We now need to put the work in to where we should be as the standard is so different now “.

Dick Clegg OBE, International Coarse Events Manager stated “I can understand the frustration that both the management and team feel with what is a very disappointing result in Italy. However, I know the quality of everyone concerned and expect them to excel next year. When I hear the comments from the competitors of other countries and the high regard that they have for the England camp then as International Events Manager I know that this is only a small blip on an otherwise excellent international record”.

He fed a kilo of worms and 3pints of casters to keep his fish interested.

Angling Trust Fishing News130 Anglers faced strong winds and some really heavy rain during this match, a match that produced a very close result and an interesting story. A close second was Adam’s travelling companion Gareth Malham.

Adam’s pal Gareth, a float maker from Chester Le Street and fishing under the Malman Floats banner, drew peg 14 on Top Pool where he pole fished luncheon meat at 14 metres to catch F1’s and Carp to 9lbs for his runners up weight of 111lbs 14ozs.

Third place went to Maver Midlands angler Rober Cooksey who took carp to 7lbs from Peg 26 on New Pool to weigh in with 110lbs 13ozs.

Former Finalist Steve Hemingray from Leicester came pretty close again with 99lbs 6ozs from Peg 3 on Top Pool to finish in 4th place. Steve fishes for Dorking.

Fifth place went to Stuart Ballard of Maver Midlands who weighed in 94lbs 12ozs from Peg 10 on Club Pool and James Hughes claimed 6th place with 90lbs 7ozs from Peg 18 on Top Pool.
