A brief introduction to the event... CLICK

Having just return from Slovenia we are now in the process of formulating our coverage. Due to the massive volume of pictures taken, we will gradually add to our special Gallery section and stories over the next couple of weeks. This year we shall try to create 'special slideshows' focussing on numerous country's individual anglers, as well as more general views. Please be patient as content will be uploaded as soon as possible.

ONLY MA Plus members will have access to our FULL coverage... so why not join up... it will also allow access the World Championship coverage, along with some fantastic in-depth features over your year's subscription... and it's ONLY £18 for a FULL 12 months!

Our GALLERIES from BOTH days are now complete...

The Day of Reckoning!

NOTE: Our apologises for missing off TWO important slideshows in Rob's part of this story. They are of Jan Heidenreich's marathon battle with a 5kg+ carp and catchshots of Sections B,C and D.

Saturday proved an elightening experience, with colour and depth combining to place England in a difficult position. We look back at the start of our coverage and relate to some of the things which we felt influenced the first days outcome... READ MORE

Friday's Diary Report from Slovenia
The previous night’s England team meeting centred around the fact that the colour was beginning to fall out of the main river.

Thursday's Diary Report from Slovenia
What an awesome place Slovenia is!!!
The scenery is absolutely breathtaking and despite a few road works, Lee and myself got to the hotel in good time on Wednesday evening, having survived DJ’s driving.
