Ladies, Have You Got What it Takes?

Carp Team England Ladies are the most highly decorated ladies team in the world with numerous gold, silver and bronze medals at international level.

We’re looking at expanding our squad and opening our doors to any ladies out there over the age of 18 to come and join us for trials.

As you will appreciate, representing your country at the highest level needs skill, determination and a very high standard of angling. A photo album of fish is not what we are after. It’s a good mindset, a good basic standard and an ability to learn and fit in with a highly motivated and successful team. The minimum requirement is consistent accurate casting with a baited rig and a spomb at 100 yards (25 wraps). We will also look at use of the throwing stick at the same distance.

There will be a stage 1 assessment on the evening of 23rd July at Drayton Reservoir NN11 8YY between 5pm-9pm. If you are interested and can make it we’d love to see you. If you’re interested but can’t make it, please let us know.


The trials will be open to anyone interested in getting involved with Carp Team England Ladies and candidates meeting the required standard will commence training with the squad in preparation for squad selection for 2020 events. As well as wearing the three lions there are tackle incentives and opportunities, so now’s the time to get practising and show us what you can do.

Please email; bev@carpworld.co.uk if you wish to attend, or if you have any questions.
