Also what makes it hard is that every shot counts. There is no warm up. And of course it's "intense".

It might be windy in Cumbria, Lasse! I'm counting on the Snakehead whack-a-mole technique that I favour performing well under such conditions.

Length is really the problem Boisker. We are also slightly elevated and I often have problems hovering the fly. Practising with fluff isn't good in this game when you get given a wet fly!!

Cheers, Paul

Just to clarify... in Cumbria it is always-
1. Wet
2. Windy
:D :D

And I prefer my technique.... only count the shots you’re happy with :D

What we considered a storm in Norway is actually a rather pleasant day in Millom.

I'm encouraged to think that when the Swedes take a step forward that they'll be blown into the lake. I haven't been able to work out if these shots count yet according to the rules.

Cheers Paul

I doubt that would happen, and in any case it should count as overstepping, isn't that in the rules :oh:

Might work on my standing long jump then :p
