30th National Angling Championship

Organisers have announced the 30th RailSport National Angling Championship will take place on August 14. 

Makins Fishery, Wolvey, Warwickshire, will once more host the tournament. The site, which is split into three zones, has 18 lakes and is one of the UK’s most popular commercial fisheries.

The teams’ competition requires each of the four members to fish in a different section. They are then scored based on their performance in that section, with the winner awarded one point, second two points, third three points and fourth four. The scores are then added together and the lowest combined total wins.

British Transport Police’s Simon Woods, a scenes of crime officer based in Leeds, was crowned the overall winner in 2018.
