Team England gave the other three home countries a demonstration on how to win a gold medal at the Lake of Menteith when they won the Autumn International by a wide margin.  In a clean sweep they also had the largest fish and the top three individual rods.

England netted 101 trout for 4214.2 points to take the gold medal with Wales taking the silver medal with 65 trout for 2757.3 points.  Ireland were third with 64 trout for 2730.8 points and Scotland were fourth with 63 trout for 2711 points.  Winner of the Brown Bowl for the best individual basket was Iain Barr of England with 17 trout for 702 points.  Top rod for Scotland was Ray Anderson of Leslie and Glenrothes AC with 9 trout for 368.5 points.  Ray was fourth overall.

Sotland had three other rods in the top twenty with Alan Gilbert of SPRA FS West in 14th place with 7 fish.  Alan Steven of FAFA was 17th with 6 fish and captain Alan Hill of SPRA FS West who also had 6 fish was 18th.

The match was fished on a total catch and release basis with the first three trout being measured and released and all additional trout receiving an allowance of 40cm.
