News by Month



In the past few years we have increased the size of the squad, introducing new anglers to great effect in the Celtic Cup, Sensas Challenge and Home International.  This is something that I am keen to continue to do.  Indeed, with an increase in the number of events we are invited to field team in, it is essential.  I would therefore like to formally request nominations to represent Scotland in this year’s International Events.


At present it is planned to enter teams into the following competitions:


  • March – Sensas Challenge, Gloucester Canal, England
  • September – World Championships for Nations, Brussels-Charleroi, Belgium
  • October – Home International, Loch Ken, Scotland


Depending upon the number of nominations additional events may be considered.


Obviously each match will require time off for travel and practice time and I will discuss this with those who nominate.  Due to changes in the funding arrangements all those selected will be required to actively engage in fund raising activities as the cost of representing Scotland is sadly, at present, borne entirely 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:
