A group of lady carp anglers have made history recently as part of the inaugural English national angling squad that beat Wales in the first ever international all female carp angling competition. 

Horrendous weather conditions including rain, snow, frost and cold winds made for uncomfortable and testing conditions but the girls stood firm in the 45 hour endurance event which saw them living and sleeping on the banks of the lake.

The event took place at Barston Lake near Solihull. The England lionesses were simply too strong for the Welsh Dragons and recorded a perfect score of three section wins to lift the trophy in a convincing fashion and become winners of the first ever Anglo – Welsh Cup.

Angling is one of the biggest participation sports in the country and the female scene is alive at the moment with more and more girls taking up the sport.
