    Phil, Most tackle shops are a good base for information and they might even be sponsoring a team, likewise there is often leagues at places like Bonehill, Gary and Polemaster fished a series there last winter, another is the Fazeley around the Minworth area they have both winter and summer leagues. usually on Sundays the Hare and Hounds at Minworth is a good starting base.

      Have to agree with Brian regarding breaking into teams. The way I did it was to fish opens on the canals (the BRS matches at the Hare and Hounds) this was on a Saturday and then on a Sunday the Stirrup Cup matches (Draw at the White Horse Minworth) build up your knowledger and confidence, get to know people, have a chat and the most important thing is to keep your ears open and listen to what the regular matchmen are saying on these venues.

      One of my mates was/is a respected match angler and through him I was asked to guest for a team in the Drennan Super League, the team were on their way out, but it was a great experience fishing against the likes of Shaky and Starlets.

      Twelve months later I was fishing for Clissets canal squad in Drennan Division One, most of the lads in that squad fished the BRS and Stirrup Cup matches, and it was a great experience, fishing to a team plan.

      Don't forget though the most important thing is to enjoy your fishing.

          Why not take a walk down there one Sunday and ask one of the anglers for some info or better still wait until the end of the match and have a chat with the match organiser.

          When I used to fish it it was Tony Robinson (I think)

                    If your ugly enough you will usually get asked to join Trabucco at some stage of your career. As far as I no a Trabucco angler has never even won a Tipton beauty competition and that doesnt take much

                        Hi phill, as the lads have said get into fishing opens first and do well and enjoy it. I would also think hard about fishing for a team i went through the same process and ended up winning a team silver medal in the Div 1 national on the cam and ouse and i hated every second of that match. The pressure was intense to fish to the team instructions even though i thought my peg required a different aprouch. After this i packed in team fishing and stuck to opens fishing were i want how i want. Don't get me wrong some anglers thrive on this type of fishing and enjoy it but it may not be all you think it is.

                        Most of all enjoy your fishing and with time and experience the wins will come.
