2021 has seen Middy focus on junior angling more than ever before, having made four signings in the U18 sponsorship category, hosted their first ever academy day, supported numerous junior festivals and more.
The latest signing is 17 year old Harry Leech, who has joined the Middy junior sponsorship team following his victory at the Middy Academy back in July.
A talented Bury-based angler, Harry is already an Angling Trust Level One Coach and he's competed four times in the Angling Trust Junior National Competition.
Harry's biggest match weight to date is 162lb 6oz from Lake 9 at Bradshaw Hall Fishery and he says that his ambitions include widening his range of fishing to include more natural venues, as well as helping more junior anglers to progress in the sport. He showcased his skills at the Middy Academy back in July, winning the match and earning a junior sponsorship. He will now receive £1500 worth of Middy tackle and be coached by some of the UK's best anglers.
