Re: ICSF

Don’t forget Estonia! Norway kept it running for two championships when it wasn’t under the ICSF umbrella. We dropped back under ICSF for the Estonia event. We’ve had three WCs in Norway, one in Estonia and one in UK.

Re: ICSF

At the end of the day it’s about keeping the integrity of these games going. And that means growing participation. If just one person drops out because of rising costs, or because of some country’s affiliation bullshit, then the integrity has gone. It’s about seeing who is the best in the world at t...

Re: ICSF

I personally hope that it works. I was really hoping that the events would happen at the same time for a good cross-over meeting. We have all seen the growth since its inception. We must be getting close to a 100 trout distance competitors plus we have I don’t know how many countries but increasing....

Re: Best flurocarbon to mono knot?

Yes - you can also tie the Slim Beauty (I always assumed this was an Australian knot but apparently it’s not :laugh:) with the tippet doubled before being passed through the 8. This would save James from tying a Bimini around Tracy’s finger on the flats :) It’s an interesting one to test but will st...

Re: Dangle and cure

Thanks Johnny, I need to see it because as Lasse points out there are several possible causes. In particular I’d be looking at the backcast first. Lasse writes it could be high, which is true, but it might also have sag when it straightens which is a different problem! You wrote that this is a probl...

Re: Best flurocarbon to mono knot?
