Tracy and I are just back from Cumbria where Tracy was qualifying for the UK team for the world championships. Unfortunately her casting, for various reasons, was not good – however she’s got some scores on the board and has until August to hopefully get back to where she was (although this may take some physiotherapy). I was able to try out my new 15ft rod for the 55g event that I received as a blank only days before Christmas. This was subsequently made up to my specifications that included some electrical tape as a reel seat, it seemed to work OK though.
If you want to compete for the UK at the world championships then you only have 2 months left to qualify (qualifying having already been running for over 6 months).
All the best for the 2018,
James (& Tracy)
