Support The Team England Lure Squad
Help Support The Team England Lure Squad as the 6 man squad prepare to compete in the World Championships over October 4th & 5th 2014. This Years event will be taking place in France on the Lake Bourget around the town of Aix-Les Baines. This will be the second year a national team is sent to the champs and I can tell you they are are going to be more prepared than ever to take on the rest of the world. Speaking to Mike Skipper the manager of the Team England Lure Team I understand the squad are going to be taking part in a host of pre tournament fishing events on lakes around the UK to hone in on the possible tactics they could use during the championships.
I have personally fished against all the anglers in the trials as well as the finals and I have to say these guys are going to be a very hard team to compete against. They seem to have a very balanced team that has both experience and youth and to compete at these high levels you will need both. Not only do they have a great team but they will benefit from having the use of their own boats kitted out with all the latest technology needed at this level. I know I will Support The Team England Lure Squad in what ever way possible.
So why do they need support you ask? Well simply at the moment the anglers are going to be funding themselves including all the travel accommodation and tackle to compete in the event, from conversations with team members it sounds as though this is going to be in excess of £2500.oo each. It would be great to see more funding come in from the local Angling authorities but there is just not enough to go around for all the representing national teams and as this is one of the newest national angling teams they fall farther down the list. We need to support our guys as much as possible so that they can represent our country with pride and deliver home the best results possible and demonstrate that the anglers in the UK are some of the best in the world. Thats why your nation needs you to Support The Team England Lure Squad.
How can you support your team I hear you ask? Right now the easiest way to support the team would be to visit their Pledge Sports web page by clicking here and making a donation of what ever amount you can to support the team. I know I will be making a donation myself at the end of September. If you can go further than making a smaller donation you can contact the team from their website here.
I know the team would be very grateful for any support you could offer them. So what are you waiting for?
