Gold At The European Police Champs

Drennan Bordon’s Graeme Aggar has just won indi­vidual gold at the European Police Championship held in Belgium. Here’s his account of a very mem­or­able two-day event.


A bonus bream from Belgium’s Roeselare-Leie Canal.

Last month saw my good friend and trav­el­ling partner Ian Jones and I packing the car and heading for the Channel Tunnel. We were trav­el­ling to Waregem in Belgium for the 27th European Police Championships to be held over 2 days in September. The venue was the Roeselare-Leie Canal, a large ship canal, 50 metres wide and up to top 5s deep at 13 metres.

The com­pet­i­tion is slightly dif­ferent to normal in that the first day is pole only and the second day, rod and line only, including feeder. The fishing was mainly for roach at 5 to 6 metres and skimmers/bream at 11 to 13 metres.

Gear Up For Autumn

new-luggage-view2We have just added sev­eral new items to our pop­ular Drennan lug­gage range!

First up, is the 2 Rod Hard Case. At 1.9m it’s 10cm shorter than its bigger brother, the 3 Rod Hard Case, but can still com­fort­ably house 12ft two-piece rods when folded away. It is made from semi-rigid EVA material to help pro­tect your tackle, with a padded shoulder strap and full-length zip for easy access. A set of neo­prene Velcro rod-retaining straps is also included.

The Medium Carryall joins the existing Small, Large and XL Carryalls and is con­structed with the same hard­wearing and water­proof fab­rics. A rigid 55cm by 25cm base gives it extra dur­ab­ility, while two side pockets, a double net/sidetray pocket and 55-litre main com­part­ment provide ample storage space.

Completing the lineup is a 4–6 Tube Full-Zip Holdall. As well as a full-length main com­part­ment, it has a three-quarter side pocket, plus external fastening points to fix two Rod Sleeves onto.

You can expect to see all of these items at your local Drennan stockist very soon!
