Middy Academy 2022 Report

Middy Academy 2022 Report

Published: 11/07/2022

A fantastic day’s experience for some of the UK’s most dedicated young anglers, the Middy Academy invites juniors aged 12 to 16 to a day at Shearsby Valley Lakes, where they meet and learn from some top level match anglers; including Rob Wootton, Lee Thornton and Chris Cameron to name just a few. The morning is a practice and coaching session with one-to-one advice given to the junior anglers, followed by a short afternoon match to determine the winner of the Middy Academy trophy and the prize money.

Contested on 16 July 2022 by nineteen anglers, they all walked away with free tackle samples as well as a few new tricks, as taught to them by Middy’s sponsored match anglers. The match saw average weights of between 30 to 40 lbs which was impressive considering their ages and that it was just a few hours in the afternoon. Jacob Lees came out on top with nets at 73lb 8oz, almost 5lb clear of second place. Here are the results in full:

Jacob Lees 73lb 8oz
Alex Glover 68lb 12oz
Lucas Parsons 64lb 2oz
Charlie Powell 58lb 8oz
Freddie Bacon 57lb 10oz
