Local lady carp anglers Elaine & Debbie Taylor have made history recently as part of the inaugural English national angling squad that beat Wales in the first ever international all female carp angling competition.
Horrendous weather conditions including rain, snow, frost and cold winds made for uncomfortable and testing conditions but the girls stood firm in the 45 hour endurance event which saw them living and sleeping on the banks of the lake.
“It can be pretty hard core and tough going at times, but the rewards are worth it.” said Elaine & Debbie who live in East Sussex. They added “We love carp fishing, and to be picked to represent our country is an absolute honour and and are extremely proud to be in the squad. To win is something that dreams are made of.”
The event took place at Barston Lake near Solihull. The England lionesses were simply too strong for the Welsh Dragons and recorded a perfect score of three section wins to lift the trophy in a convincing fashion and become winners of the first ever Anglo – Welsh Cup.
Angling is one of the biggest participation sports in the country and the female scene is alive at the moment with more and more girls taking up the sport.
