HOW TO FISH FOR WALES
If you are a 18 years or over you are eligible to fish the Senior fly fishing trials for Welsh rivers, loch style (stillwater) and bank teams, a selection process which Welsh Salmon & Trout Angling Association (WSTAA) run each year. WSTAA are the governing body for game angling in Wales.
WSTAA also hold Welsh fly fishing team trials for youth, disabled and ladies teams, all eligible anglers will be warmly welcomed to take part.
WSTAA hold these trials to select international Welsh team members, who would then fish the following year in a Home International event against Ireland, Scotland and England. There is also a World Team trial, for competing outside the UK alongside many international teams in the annual FIPS Mouche World Fly Fishing Championship.
So, if you fancy having a go and gaining yourself a Welsh Cap to fish for your country in a International contact your local fly fishing club secretary, they will have the forms and will be able to answer any questions you may have regarding entry.
