Part One of our picture gallery follows Drennan Team England on the final day of practice for the World Championship in Croatia.
The venue was the wild and fast-paced Dubrava Canal or ‘Track’ near Prelog, north Croatia. This is a man-made channel that serves an adjacent hydro-electric power station. The flow can be controlled by the power plant but after several weeks of rain the venue was still rising and flowing extremely hard… and continued to do so!

Alan has loved getting back to his roots on the River Trent in readiness for the Division One National.
Alan Scotthorne reflects on recent sessions spent on the mighty River Trent in preparation for the forthcoming Division One National.
With the Angling Trust Division One National Championship coming up on the River Trent, my Drennan Barnsley Blacks outfit have been putting in some extra practice. The winners of this competition will represent England at next year’s World Club Championship in Slovakia, so it’s a match we naturally want to win!
I have now been to the river on three practice sessions and also fished five matches so I am building some sort of idea of the various tactics needed. I have made a couple of mistakes but also fished one or two good matches so, without giving too much away, I’ll talk you through what has happened. Incidentally, the practice sessions were really good with me catching close to 60lb on one session and a good double figures on the others, but it is on the actual matches where you obviously learn the most.
