World Angling Games Italy 2011

The Italian Fishing Federation has released their calendar of events for next year’s World Angling Games in Italy. The host nation will organise more than 25 different competitions all within the same week at venues throughout Italy from 28th August – 4th September 2011.

Coarse, game and sea anglers will converge on the historic city of Florence for the opening ceremony on Sunday the 28th of August and then go directly to the venue selected for them by the Italian hosts.

More than 50 countries are expected to take part, making this event an angling spectacular the likes of which have never been seen before.

A few major changes were made to some of the FIPSed rules at the recent meeting of the technical committee for the Freshwater discipline;

1. The Nations, European and World Club Championships will now be of 4 hours duration.

2. The prebaiting period has been extended to 10mins.

3. The age limit of the under 22s has been increased to under 23 years of age.

Dick Clegg, OBE, International Events Manager, said “Italy is a fantastic place to visit and spectators will have great time watching the teams compete. The programme of events allows followers to switch from venue to venue since the finals do not all take place on the same day unlike the opening ceremony”.

The Angling Trust, England’s national governing body for competition angling is affiliated to the World governing body CIPS and teams representing our country will take part in the FIPSed, FIPSmer, FIPSmouche and FIPScasting division of the games.
