a sustainable source of income and a fully funded world championship activity and accreditation process. Just like what happened in fly casting world championships held in Norway and the UK.

The question that I keep coming back to is; what exactly are the ICSF bringing to the party? How did the world championships change between the Norwegian federation running it and the ICSF? From what I saw Lee and family did everything in the run-up to Cumbria 2018 - was there any practical help fro...

Re: Tippet breaking-tropical hot saltwater.

Just a reminder of the Instron testing on tippet knots that I did some time back: knots.PNG Although I obviously agree with Paul about the Bimini being the strongest (you can't argue with the data) it is an impractical knot for the flats fisher. Firstly it uses up way too much leader during the tyin...

Re: FFI CI exam Tailing loops

Re: Strip strike or trout set

Loop-to-looped perfection knots are not the strongest option. Tying a Bimini into a Slim beauty is great but it's going to eat up a lot of your 9ft tapered leader - especially if you change the tippet at some point.
