For the last 12 months AT TEFF have been considering a new approach to help Team England achieve its goal of becoming the number one fly fishing nation in the world. We have developed the following proposal that would see significant changes to the current competition structure.
The Elite Performance Programme would cover the three principle disciplines of Fips-Mouche Championships; River, Boat and Bank. Fips-Mouche rules and scoring system will be adopted and placing points will be aggregated to build a league table. Our intention is to hold heats at suitable venues throughout England between November and July each year for selection into the following year’s teams.
The conclusion of the 2017/18 programme will provide AT TEFF with teams for the 2019 World Championship in Tasmania and the European Championship in Montenegro.
The proposal has been published on the website to provide anglers with an insight to the current thinking, it is for information purposes only, at this stage it is only a proposal and AT TEFF will make a final decision in due course
