Click to follow
FIERCE criticism was heaped on the rowing course at Holme Pierrepont, Nottingham, yesterday after England regained the Legrand World Freshwater Championship by virtue of having only two anglers failing to catch. With more than half the anglers failing to catch a fish over the two days, team captains were united in condemning the water. Bob Nudd, of Great Yeldham, Essex, won the individual title for the third time in five years.
