2010 Inter-Teams match Results on Llandegfedd

enjoyable day – but who came out on top

Inter-Teams Competition 2010 – a day to remember.
For the past two decades and more, the WSTAA has launched every new competition season by holding an inter-teams match on one of Wales’ big lakes. Each team to represent Wales in the forthcoming series of International, Commonwealth and World Championships is invited to ‘battle it out’ against the other national teams to see which team will top the chart! As this event is a recognised squad training day – each team is eager to ‘beat the rest’ – in what is always ‘friendly rivalry’.
Over the years the event has undoubtedly been a very worthwhile and rewarding exercise and this year was no exception.
On Sunday morning 11th April the teams turned up at Llandegfedd Reservoir where everything had been prepared for them by the ever-helpful Rangers.
It was a lovely, sunny Spring morning and although a cold breeze was creating a ripple on the water it looked very inviting and all competitors were eager to get going.
The match was fished over six hours with competitors catching 4 fish before switching to de-barbed hooks and fishing C&R for the remaining period.
The team results were as follows:
