How international events work
HOW INTERNATIONAL EVENTS WORK
Individual pairs events are simple, the pair with the biggest weight wins.
Team events are decided on points. The majority of F.I.P.S. Ed events are pairs or team events and usually last 72 hours.
There are usually three sections with one pair from each county in each section. (click here)
Places in sections are decided by the highest weight then converted to points, known as penalties.
1st in section gets 1 point, second 2 pts and so on until last in section or a blank gets a maximum.
The points from the three national pairs are added together to form the national total.
The winner is the nation with the lowest points score.
Rules for the events are very strict with bait limits, areas that anglers can cast into, times that they can bait up etc etc. A full list of International rules can be seen on the FIPS Ed web site.
