Representing Scotland at the World Championships is undoubtedly the pinnacle of any Scottish match angler’s career.

Scotland has competed in International fishing competitions since 1979, first entering the World Championships in 1981, and recent results have seen them rank consistently amongst the top ten countries in the world.

Representing Scotland is open to all Federation members as long as you meet the selection criteria.

Once all the nominations are received the International Manager and Team Coach consider each in turn taking account of results (both individual and team), experience and technical ability.

The International Manager then selects the squad for the year. From this squad teams are selected for the following events with individuals competing for their place:

  1. The World Championships.
  2. The Celtic Cup
  3. The Sensas Challenge
  4. Other International Representative Matches
  5. The Junior Celtic Cup – for anglers under the age of 21.

Generally new anglers into the team participate in the Celtic Cup and success at this level then sees them progress into the squad for the World Championships
