Taking nothing away from anyone that has won the all ireland pike trophy under the existing rules,or for that matter been successful in fishing on the irish team is it not time for change to the qualifiers .I am sure that everyone would want the most consistent fishermen to come through to the last ten,if the heats where run on a total bag weight over a set number of heats it would do away with anyone representing ireland having caught a number of small fish.

definetaly worth a lot of cosideration,,when you think that all the affillated clubs run league's throughout the year with the winner being the man with the most points/fewest points depending on what way each club awards the point's to the best angler of each heat at the end of the day its the accumilation of points throughout the year that produce's the top angler in each club,,where as with the fed heats you only have to top that paticular heat to qualify on the day!!!
a very valid point there boatman,,but me think's it will take a lot more than a posting on the forum to change anything within the fed

regards

TJ

I think it's all about catching fish no matter what size they are. However, I think there could be room for reform if the will is there Exclamation

Boatman,
I can understand that some lucky anglers qualify for the team with less than spectacular bags of fish. The point to keep in mind is that the qualifiers are held on a number of venues over a number of months. Any chance of consistency is surely eliminated by this.
The competitors on the day are up against the same odds.
Think of it as a knockout competition rather than a league.
Everyone lucky enough or good enough should be entitled to fish for Ireland.
Tight lines,
Biffo

I think the fomat at the minute is ok so I don't think it should be changed.

Ireland have won the last 2 so there isn't too much wrong with it and I also think that we are leading overall as welll

I agree with the general feeling that if it ain't broken don't fix it. Our international record stands for itself, last years International made it 3 in a row for our team and the overall score stands at 12 - 6 to the Irish, we would be mad to change something that works so well.

While i understand that some people are happy with things as they stand,it was just an idea to make the heats a bit more competitive.It is much easier to qualify as things stand at the minute everyone knows at times there are finalists that got there with a single fish at a pound or two.Plus by the time you near the last of the heats half the anglers have gone having already qualified.I think any change that would keep large numbers at all the qualifiers would be healthy for the fed.

not everyone can attend 4-5- or 6 heats every year.so they take their chance to qualify whenever they can.so if someone wins or is in the top 5 in a heat and is unable to attennd any other heats they would not be in the final if this new system is put in place,also someone who has qualified in a heat that had between 40 and 80 people this year will be in the final with someone who has qualified from a heat with 13 anglers fishing for 5 places.that's a bit unfair.i think the stewards heat should be scrapped after this year.their are plenty of anglers whom will weigh fish at the comps
