AT TEFF Squad announced for 5 Nations

The Angling Trust reports: Angling Trust Team England Fly Fishing has announced the squad for the IV 5 Nations competition, sponsored by Cortland, which will be held in England from 16th – 21st July 2017.

England will have two teams competing in the event which will be held at Stocks Reservoir and the River Ribble. Teams from Scotland, Ireland, Wales, France, Luxembourg, Netherlands and Belgium have also been invited to participate.

Following England’s recent review of their approach to the 5 Nations event, the England teams will contain a blend of anglers with experience of World or European FIPS-Mouche events, anglers with experience of IFFA Home Internationals and younger anglers who are showing potential to succeed in the international arena.

England Blue will be captained by three-time former European team member Tony Baldwin, who will be joined by Mark Withyman and youngsters Tom Gott and Tom Speak.

England Red will be led by the vastly experienced World and European team member Simon Kidd and supported by Carl Nixon, Harry Fox and Tom Bird. Mark Harrison will complete the squad as the official reserve.

England manager Paul Davison  image-8060-452-auto-both-both-85-5said: “I’m delighted with the squad we have chosen for my first competition as manager. We have a great blend of experienced and up and coming anglers and the 5 Nations event provides us with the opportunity to develop our skill sets in a FIPS-Mouche style competition. The planning and preparation has already begun, Stocks is a venue the team and myself know well and we will be going all out to win the event.”

2017 will be the first time England have hosted this event, Ireland played host in 2015 and 2016 while Scotland hosted the inaugural event in 2013, an event where Team England swept the board claiming team gold and silver while individual honours followed for Robert Brown and Paul Lee as they took gold and bronze respectively. England will be looking to repeat that feat when the nations descend upon Waddow Hall in July.

AT TEFF 5 Nations Policy

This policy statement outlines AT TEFF approach to eligibility and selection of team to represent England in the 5 Nations competition.

The 5 Nations competition presents an opportunity for England to enter multiple teams to compete in an event fished to FIPS-Mouche rules. AT TEFF will use this opportunity to further develop current international anglers and anglers under the age of 30 who are showing potential to go to represent England in European and World teams in the future.

The team(s) will contain a balance of current or past performers in World or European competition, anglers with experience of representing England in Home Internationals river, bank or loch style competitions and young anglers who are showing potential and competing in rivers nationals plus one of either bank or loch style.

Basic minimum eligibility criteria will govern selection to the team(s)

  1. Over age of 30
  • Must have minimum of 1 cap in either Rivers, Loch Style or Bank Home International plus current competitor in a minimum of one other National (different from the discipline they have achieved a cap).

2. Under age of 30

  • Must be competing in Rivers National plus either Loch Style National or Bank National

The 5 Nations manager will nominate team(s) to represent England in the forthcoming 5 Nations competition at the Team England Fly Fishing International Committee meeting at the start of the year. The manager will present the proposed selection to committee for scrutiny and approval.

Anglers selected to represent England in this competition will be awarded a cap however, this cap will not count towards eligibility or consideration for selection to World or European teams.
