Following an announcement last year that the Angling Trust will be holding an assessment trial early in the New Year to select an England team to compete in the inaugural FIPSed Veterans World Championship, the Angling Trust is pleased to announce that the assessment day will be held on Saturday 3rd February 2018 on the River Nene at Ringstead, near Thrapston (PE8 5PB).

Anyone applying will be fishing alongside the current Masters squad (previously Veterans) and the event will be fished to FIPSed international rules. It is also a requirement that each angler is also an individual member of the Angling Trust. Because the team is unfunded any successful applicant will be expected to help raise funds, or make a personal contribution towards entry costs if selected. Anglers must be aged between 66-79 at the time of the World Championship. Any angler above the age of 75 years during the World Championship must produce a doctors certificate to confirm that they are fit and able to complete.

This year will see the existing Veterans team (aged 55 – 65 years of age) fish in the Masters category and the new Veterans team aged 66 and above will be fishing as the Veterans team on the Mura River in Croatia from 16th – 17th June.

To confirm if you will be fishing the assessment trial and for any further details please contact Joe Roberts, England Veterans Manager, on: 07860 469595 by no later than 25th January.
