Year 11 student Jack Reynolds at Worle Community School in Weston-super-Mare, Somerset is fishing for the England team.
He was competing against Ireland, Scotland and Wales in the Sea Angling Liaison Committee (SALC) Home Nations Championships 2022 which were held in Weymouth.
Jack was selected to fish for England under the Sea Angling England Talent Pathway.
He has just finished his GCSE exams after five years at WCSA.
In September he will be starting at Weston College.
He is a member of Channel Anglers, Sea Angling Club and is coached by James T Madsen.
He was in the Junior Shore Team with Archie Sweetland, Braydon Aldous, Curtis Driver and Sam James.
The pathway offers talented young anglers with the potential and aspiration to represent England with opportunities to access a high performance coaching and education programme.
The purpose of the programme is to produce the England International anglers of the future.
In second place after the first day of fishing; England came out with all guns blazing on the second day. They were the first to catch fish in all four zones.
They kept that up throughout the day to win the trophy and gold medals.
A tremendous achievement with a true team performance. Ireland finished in second place with 3442 points with England scoring 3856.
The team is managed by Paul Driver and assistant manager Anton James.
Paul said: “I am so Proud of this England Junior Shore Team and what they have a achieved.
“I am so proud to be managing this team – it’s hard to put into words what it means and the importance of what we have achieved.”
