Two gold medals for few fish or how (not) to become the World Champion
Martin Musil Jr.
If somebody had told me before this year´s championship that we would win both in teams and individuals, I would only smile. I had a feeling that any kind of medal would be a great success. Before the start of the competition I set my goal to fight until its very end and enjoy the atmosphere of individual competitions as well as the entire championship as much as possible, because this time it was my last chance to represent the Czech Republic in youth competition. I must confess that despite the fact I took this event very seriously, my preparations for it were not too intensive. Permanent persuasion of myself to tie a fly, I gave up after some time.

RIP Mike Childs (2nd June 1935 - 17th September 2012)
It is with great sadness that we learn of the death of Mike Childs, a great angler who gave so much of his life to representing his country and organising the international fly fishing competitions for seniors and juniors.
Mike was central to the England International and World squads for many years and became a very succesful team manager. In particular he developed close relationships with other European angling organisations arranging many exchange trips for the senior and youth teams and served as President of the International Fly Fishing Association.
Latterly he was the President of the England Youth Flyfishing Association and gave many years to supporting the younger generation of anglers through national and international competitions.
Mike will be sadly missed by so many anglers across the world and our thoughts are with his wife Valerie.
Mike's funeral will be held on Tuesday 2nd October 2012 at 11.00am and will take place at St Francis RC Church, 110 Warwick Road, Kenilworth CV8 1HL. The service will be followed by cremation.
Mike's family have stressed that all Mike's fishing friends from over the years are very welcome, have asked that no flowers are sent, but very kindly suggested that any donations can be made in his memory to England Youth Fly-fishing.
Any donations can be sent to The EYF Treasurer, 23 Fines Road, Medomsley, Consett, Co Durham DH8 6QR (cheques made payable to Angling Trust).
