World Lure Championships head to England in 2018

The Angling Trust has announced that England will host the 11th FIPS-ed Carnivorous Artificial Bait Boat Angling Championships in 2018. The competition will head to the British Isles for the second time in three years following the successful 2016 world championship which was held in Ireland.

The four day event will be held on Rutland Water from Thursday 11th to Sunday 14th October and it is expected that as many as 20 nations could head to the England to compete in this prestigious lure angling competition.

The competition has been dominated by Eastern European nations in recent years, world number one ranked Ukraine winning three world titles, Lithuania winning one world title and most recently, Romania were crowned world champions in 2017. Italy are the only central European team to record a win back in 2013 however, with the imminent appointment of a new manager, Team England will be hopeful of breaking the dominance and achieving a good result on their home water.

Competitions & Performance Manager for the Angling Trust Ben Thompson said “We are absolutely delighted to be hosting such a prestigious event, having the World Championships in England presents a wonderful opportunity to showcase one of the fastest growing areas of our sport, we have some excellent predator fishing in this country and Rutland will provide a fantastic challenge for all of the participants. Rutland holds a good head of predator species with pike exceeding 15kg, zander to 5kg and perch to 1.5kg which is sure to provide a fascinating competition.”

“We are in the process of creating an organising committee and we will be recruiting a large number of volunteers to act as stewards for the event and welcome anyone with a passion for lure angling and an interest to get involved to come forward."

Interested parties should forward an expression of interest to Angling Trust via an email HERE

"This international competition will provide anglers in England with the opportunity to get up close and personal with some of the very best predator anglers in the world, an opportunity not to be missed.”
