Robinson's the Top Rod as England Cruise to Victory


THE six-man England team - made up of anglers from the North East - won last week's inaugural International bank competition against Scotland, Wales and Ireland by seven clear place points with Whickham angler Simon Robinson the top individual rod.

Robinson has now won all three senior individual home international titles - loch style, rivers (twice) and now bank. He was also individual youth international loch style champion in 1994.

Robinson and captain Fred Bainbridge from Ripon set the early pace in the individuals, taking eight and seven fish respectively for first and second places in the morning session.

At the lunch break, although England had more fish, Ireland had caught more consistently as a team and led by eight place points.

In the afternoon, England again took the top two individual places with Andrew Scott of Eastgate winning the session with five fish. Simon Robinson was second with four and Ireland's Julie Gerry was third place with three.

Middlesbrough's Chris Micallef took three fish and fourth place. Fred Bainbridge and Peter Appleby from Easington also landed fish while Glen Appleby, also from Easington, had no luck on difficult pegs.

One of Britain's leading anglers Charles Jardine was in Northumberland last week carrying out work with his Fishing for Schools project and giving fly tying and casting demonstrations and talks in Rothbury and at South Linden Trout Fishery, Longhorsley.

This week, the recently restocked lakes at South Linden have been fishing well. G Maddison from Choppington caught and released seven while his brother David caught and released four.

The bait lake has been fishing steadily with A Christenson of Red Row, among others, landing a full bag on worm.

Caistron Lakes continue to fish well with holidaymaker A Morgan landing four fish, the best at 4lb, while H Murray of Northfield had the week's heaviest fish at 7lb and Rod Hudson landed two for a combined weight of more than 8lb.

The Caistron beat of the River Coquet, which closes for the season on Sunday (October 31) fished well following the recent rain with Neil Arkley of Washington bringing seven salmon to the net.

John Robson from Newbiggin had a great four-hour session at Chatton Trout Fishery, landing 10 fish including a 13lb 12oz rainbow, while Phil Bilbrough from Bedlington brought nine, including the week's heaviest fish of the week - a 20lb rainbow which was safely returned - to the net.

Other good catches were recorded by Tom Russell (Jnr) from Earlston who caught 16; Matty Divine from Hadston who caught 15, the best at 9lb; Tom Russell (Snr) from Earlston who caught 10; Andy Campbell from Lynemouth who caught eight; John Tait from Belford caught seven and Kevin Stewart from Amble who kept five and returned two. …
