England Win Bank International in Wales
England convincingly won the Bank international in at Garnffrwd Fishery in South Wales by a record margin with a tremendously consistent team performance over 2 sessions. The team consisted of Simon Robinson as captain with team members Terry Phillips, Dean Appleby, Phil Dixon, Jim Tuck and Mark Harrison with Andy Taylor as reserve and Alan Jenkins as Team manger.

The team arrived well in advance of official practice and set out to try various tactics to establish the best methods for the competition. The team was made up of experienced small water anglers and the best methods were quickly established.

England got off to a fantastic start with the lure and indicator rods accounting for most of the early fish and at lunch time they had established a commanding lead. Dean Appleby and Terry Phillips had both taken 11 fish including early 5 fish pegs. Simon Robinson and Phil Dixon had taken 7 fish, Jim Tuck 6 fish and Mark Harrison 5 fish..

The England team continued with the same tactics after dinner and, also won the afternoon session. England finished with 5 of the top 8 anglers including simon in 6th place to finally record a winning margin of 25 fish and 70 place points - a very impressive team performance.
