International Match Team Manager Calls for nominations

After two years without fielding International Teams due to the COVID pandemic, the hope is that normal business will resume in 2022.  As we have still not managed to appoint a permanent Team Manager since Chris Paton stepped down in 2018, I will continue in the role until a suitably qualified individual can be identified.  As caretaker Manager I am keen to continue to try to increase the size of the International squad, and the number of opportunities to introduce new anglers to fishing at this level.  I would therefore like to formally request nominations to represent Scotland in the following International Events in 2022:

Float Only:

  • March 2022  – Sensas Challenge, Gloucester Canal, England
  • June 2022 – European Championships, R Sorraia, Carouche, Portugal or
  • September 2022 – World Championships for Nations, Stara Drava Bilje, Osijek, Croatia
  • October – Home International, tbc


  • October – Northern Nations Feeder Championships, Barston Lakes, England

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.

Nominations Process, Eligibility and Key Criteria

Please return your nominations either via your club or direct to me ideally by 15th January 2022 or by email to  I am hoping to hold a squad meeting prior to the end of January to discuss the forthcoming season and to deliver the mandated Anti-Doping training.

The nomination process for the Carp Team and possibly a Lure Team will be set out separately.

Tight Lines,
