Congratulations to our Fly Fishing Pro Phil Shaw-Browne
2017 Autumn Loch Style Home International
Lake of Menteith
We are so proud of our in-house Fly Fishing pro and MD, Phil Shaw-Browne for competing in his first international competition last month.
Last month, Phil competed with his team, the Angling Trust England team, at Lake Monteith in Scotland against Wales, Ireland, and Scotland. The teams set out for three days of practice in the variable highland weather to help identify the fishes’ patterns, which would influence their tactics come match day. Captained by experienced fisherman Iain Barr, the England team got off to a great start on match day, with two fish caught within the first ten minutes of the match, and the lines didn’t stop moving all day.
The England team brought in an impressive 101 fish, with second, third and fourth places trailing at a total of 65 fish for Wales, 64 fish for Ireland and 63 fish for Scotland. Phil had a successful day taking a fifth-place ranking in his team of fourteen with a total of 8 fish, and his top three weighing in at 46.5, 49.5, and 47.5.
