The youth team from Wales triumphed in the shore Home International fished on their home venue at Aberystwyth on 10th & 11th July.
The Youth (16-21 years old) teams fished two very different venues for the two days of the Championship. The first day was at Borth – a flat, sandy beach which was fished across low water for flounders, small turbot and the occasional bass at very close range. The second day was fished on a steep pebble beach across high water. The competitors fished principally for lesser spotted dogfish and flounders, mainly at long distance.
The England youth team finished 5 points adrift and took the silver medal.
