Canada gains membership to International Federation of Sport Fishing
The International Federation of Sport Fishing has granted membership to Canadian Freshwater International Fishing Federation to represent Canada in their international tournaments.
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.
