AT TEFF Elite Performance Programme 2019 EPP 2019

01st March 2019

The purpose of the Elite Performance Programme (EPP) is to provide a new, clear and open pathway to selection for England's World and European teams. The EPP closely mirrors the structure and format of
FIPS-Mouche competitions. The aim of the programme is to provide anglers with more experience of fishing fixed peg matches to FIPS-Mouche rules, with a view to improving performance and results on the international stage.

To ensure anglers with appropriate skills and experience compete in the programme, we have introduced an Eligibility Criteria. This criteria provides anglers with the ambition to compete at the highest level with clarity on the pathway and achievements required to progress and join the programme.
