I would like to formally request nominations to represent Scotland in this year’s International Events.

In the past few years we have increased the size of the squad, introducing new anglers to great effect in the Celtic Cup and Sensas Challenge.  This is something that I am keen to continue to do.  Indeed, with the strength of the International Team leading to an increase in the number of events we are invited to field team in, it is essential.

The events we are planning to compete in during 2015 are:


  • March – Sensas Challenge, River Soar, England – 5 man team
  • July – Fish O Mania Home International, Cudmore Fisheries, England -4 man team
  • July – Celtic Cup, Newry Canal, Ireland -7 man team
  • September- World Championships, Slovenia – 6 man squad
  • September – Maver Mega Match This, Larford Lakes, England
  • October, Home International, Newry Canal, Ireland


  • July –Celtic Cup, Newry Canal, Ireland
  • August – Under 23 World Championships, Serbia -5 man squad

Obviously each match will require time off for travel and practice time and I or Alan Pellow, Junior Team Manager will discuss this with you.

Due to changes in the funding arrangements all those selected will be required to actively engage in fund raising activities as much of the cost of representing Scotland is sadly at present borne by the individuals selected.   More information on selection criteria including the key attributes I look for in an International Angler can be found by clicking the following link:
