Its a fantastic experience and you'll thoroughly enjoy the friendly banter and magnificent fishing around our chosen base of Loughborough.

Gaining an opportunity to actually fish for Great Britain is perhaps not as hard as one might think. with a fair number of anglers gaining the chance to take part in the Great Britain v Ireland International at their very first attempt.

This years event takes place over the weekend of the 5th & 6th of September - venue TBC

The selection match is based around the same arrangements as the International, with two days of one-rod river roving. Searching out as much water as possible during the space of the 5 to 6 hour match to cover as many feeding pike as possible in that time.

Please also ensure you bring adequate unhooking tools with you as well as a pike sack in case you have to wait for your fish to be witnessed. In this event, everyone acts as a steward and so you will be expected to weigh in fish for others. This ensures fish are not kept sacked up for long, and also more importantly the safety of pike is given the utmost of importance.

Please note that due to the nature of the fishing, the banks may be unsuitable for the disabled or those with limited mobility. You are welcome to come along and compete, but please take this into consideration.

We have included a full PDF copy of the BPS match rules here which will give you a further insight into our style of fishing and what is expected of you if you decide to take part. These rules are designed to be fair to all taking part; whilst ensuring the maximum amount of safety for our chosen prey. Please read and understand the ethos behind our style of fishing and welfare. Thank you.

We look forward to seeing you in September for a lot of great banter, some excellent fishing and to hopefully welcoming you to the 2016 British Pike Squad Team.
