PRLog - Apr. 16, 2012 - BOBCAYGEON, Canada -- Canada’s freshwater angling competitors now have an organization of their own to represent them in the International Fresh Water Sport Fishing Federation (FISP-ed).  At their recent General Assembly in Spain, FIPS-ed granted membership to the newly established – Canadian Freshwater International Fishing Federation (CFIFF) as the representatives for teams from Canada. This affiliation includes the right to be the hosts of FIPS-ed tournaments held in Canada in the future.

CFIFF’s mandate is to establish a permanent international representation of anglers and stakeholders from Canada’s sport fishing industry. The prime goal is to select team members for a variety of fishing disciplines and to support them in representing Canada in FIPS-ed tournaments at home and abroad.
There are several fishing disciplines available, including ice fishing, angling from boats and ground fishing, eg. for carp.

FIPS-ed is part of the larger International Angling Confederation with headquarters in Rome since 1952. Various competitions are held annually around the world with the ideals of an Olympic event. National pride and international goodwill are the rewards, rather than monetary prizes. There are 115 member nations taking part at various times.

2013 Ice Fishing Team Selection Committee
The 2013 World Ice Fishing Championship will be held in the U.S.A. CFIFF is forming the ice fishing team based on the selections by a committee within its membership.

For further information about membership, the selection process, regulations and sponsor opportunities, please visit the website: www.cfiff.org
