Tronixpro Sponsors England World Shore Teams


The Angling Trust has announced a two year partnership with Tronix UK Ltd that will see Tronixpro become Official Sponsors of England World Men’s, Ladies, Youth and Junior shore fishing teams.

The West Sussex-based tackle company has a strong reputation for providing quality tackle to competition and recreational sea anglers across the UK and abroad, and the partnership with Team England will strengthen the brand’s reputation as an industry leader within match fishing.

As a long-standing supporter of England Shore angling teams – Tronixpro have provided team members with discounted product – the new deal will see this continue while cash investment will support each team’s entry to the FIPS-M World Championships in 2016 and 2017.

Ben Thompson, Senior Competitions Manager of the Angling Trust, said: “We are delighted to be working in partnership with Tronixpro. This partnership will provide England with the resources to challenge for medals on the world stage and demonstrates an incredible commitment from Tronixpro in supporting men’s, women’s, youth and junior elite sea angling in England.”

George Cunningham, Managing Director of Tronix UK Ltd, said: “Tronixpro is delighted to become the Official Sponsor of England World Shore Angling Teams. This new venture allows us to increase our support and enhance the existing relationship with Team England, and provides marketing opportunities to raise the profile of both Team England and Tronixpro.”

Ireland will host the Senior and Ladies FIPS-M World Shore Angling Championships in November while England’s Youth and Junior teams will travel to Spain in October. You can follow their progress by signing up for free to the Angling Trust’s newsletter or by visiting the Facebook sites listed below:

I echo the above, George has always supported LISA with prizes and support.
A truly super guy and his company Tronix make some top end gear.
Not sure I like the colours of some of his recent Cobra range tho ;)

they could have chossen a better quality sponsor
:) It depends on what He's supplying. Could be tackle or money or both. To be honest, most International anglers use their own tried and tested gear, stuff they use all the time. Although the ads will say, supported by Tronix, it doesn't mean they use their gear, it hopefully implies that they do. :)

Hi ???, are you on commission or something? every time you mention AT or 'Sussex Anglers' do you get a donation to charity. I must take issue with you old chap? I am Sussex born and bred and have fished these waters for close on 45 years, mainly from the beach. What category do I fall in to, because you keep saying that you represent me? Sorry old boy, sorry to disappoint you, but I have not mandated you for that privilege. I am a true 'independent beach fisherman' and long may that continue.

When I wake up in the morning and decide to go fishing, am I still allowed to? How long will it be before the likes of you and them will say sorry, but as from today, the likes of you local independent beach anglers are interfering with those nursery beds ?? yards out and you need a licence.

I like to think I'm free from all that red tape stuff and do what I want, when I want and how I want. Without the likes of somebody saying 'on behalf of Sussex Anglers' or 'the vast majority of Sussex Anglers'. ???, old boy! I am the 'vast majority' of a dying breed.

No offence, but please go quietly, shut the door and turn the light off.

PS I have my own inbuilt set of rules and regulations that I abide by - call it 'conscious competence'

Well said..

And he does it all for free and at his own expense... never ever looking for a word of praise either.

Very true, he was also happy to supply the ATSMR with our first set of LRF gear and all the terminal tackle etc that goes with it, at a vastly reduced price.

He does deserve the praise, it is a shame some people are trying to tarnish this thread with inappropriate comments.

This post has "touched a nerve". I have long wondered, as a casual, sometime sea angler , why such agitation is caused amongst so many rank and file fellow sea anglers at the mention of The Angling Trust. Clearly many posts appeared on this forum, became heated and then closed. So much so that a seperate site has been opened for "fisticuffs " of a "political" nature. The press release commending the generosity, or far sighted business acumen, of Mr Cunningham, has fired a further round of discussion.
I gather it is to support an England team, or teams. Fine, but what?
So I followed towards the available information. Facebook have a site regarding the England Ladies Team. From it are links to other "national teams", apparently engaged in international competitions, travel, visits etc. some stunning clean cut team members in smart blazers and striped ties. Fantastic.
It leads to some amazing (to me at least) concepts that , in 60 plus years on this planet, as an established hunter-gatherer, are so alien to my experience, that I read them in total bewilderment.
I attach a link to one such:
http://www.anglingtrust.net/page.asp?section=1070&sectionTitle=Anti+Doping+in+Angling
,for your edification and interest. It seems so far away from any aspect of the pastime I , sometimes, find time to pursue, that it becomes totally irrelevant to me, and I suspect, most of the 800,000 other sea anglers I may sometimes meet
Is this what Mr Cunninghams donation is to fund?

Perhaps it's time to disturb the moths in your wallet Mike. Ten years ago, perhaps you had a point. Tronix was simply ordering from factories in China, same as most UK wholesalers. But these days, with much bigger volumes, Tronixpro as the company is now known, dictates to the factories the designs and the quality requirements. And boy does it show. The best bit is, ordinary anglers like me get listened to by Tronixpro MD, and the products continue to be tweaked and improved upon. Aside from the immense support Tronixpro gives back to the industry in supporting everything from 40 peg charity opens to the national teams, the proactive approach to tackle manufacture and design in itself is a huge breath of fresh air. And still the prices are incredible. We need more George Cunninghams in fishing today.

I think to be free of all the red tape stuff, you need to find an island outside all known territorial waters... or, carry on with the head in sand routine, whilst the seas slowly die. And then blame everyone else. Reg doesn't get everything right, but many things that are good on the local sea angling scene, such as the Bexhill festival which gets many non anglers intrigued, have his efforts behind them. And, wether you like it or not, at government level the Angling Trust is seen to be the voice of anglers. If you don't like what it does, better to join it and as a member, suggest your better ways of getting the angling voice heard.

Hi ???, My name is Reg are you on commission or something? No every time you mention AT or 'Sussex Anglers' do you get a donation to charity No . I must take issue with you old chap My name is Reg ? I am Sussex born and bred and have fished these waters for close on 45 years, mainly from the beach. What category do I fall in to what ever category you choose , because you keep saying that you represent me? No, sorry not true, I have never once said I represent you. Sorry old boy, My name is Reg sorry to disappoint you, you haven't but I have not mandated you for that privilege. Good I am a true 'independent beach fisherman' and long may that continue. Good for you

When I wake up in the morning and decide to go fishing, am I still allowed to? Yes How long will it be before the likes of you and them will say sorry, for what but as from today, the likes of you local independent beach anglers are interfering with those nursery beds ?? are they, why do you say that? yards out and you need a licence. No licence is required for sea angling, maybe you will get one in three to five years, just my guess though.

We all have our own rules and regulations that we abide by, unfortunately the EU. DEFRA and the ten IFCA's don't really care about them. They intend to manage you whether you like it or not, now you can carry on sticking your head in the sand hoping it all goes away. You can thrust you anger on me with childish comments and wild accusations all you like, it doesn't bother me in the slightest, or you can do something about these regulations. You can join the AT, have your say, make sure the EU, DEFRA and the IFCA's know you will not be walked all over.

My guess though, going by your rant, is that you will just be happy to continue blaming others.
