Re: ICSF

That’s correct Michal, Wlodek now lives in the US and this year cast for the US. Best distance caster I have seen and a great bloke. Poland has a tiered structure, the ICSF fee is paid by PZW, so all members of the PZW selected casting team can compete at WCs, representing Poland. The best thing to ...

Re: ICSF

Hi Michal, Is not the Polish situation the same as other countries, one body PZW, the national body for casting and that group has many affiliated clubs as members? As the controlling body, PZW is the member of ICSF for Poland. Australia is the same, one organisation, The Australian Casting Federati...

Re: CCI Burn Out

Hi Marshall, thanks for your post. I too have struggled with some aspects of accreditation. At the end of the day, it is about following your fishing/casting/whatever dream along whichever path you are most comfortable with. For some it is the accreditation path to teaching, for others it is not; bo...

Re: ICSF

Never fished for pike Lasse, will have a crack at it in Sweden. I look at Bernd’s Facebook photos of some envy, the take must be something else.

Re: ICSF

I must congratulate the Swedish Casting Federation on their presentation and the planning work that preceded it. It is the host nation that does all the work in organising a World Championship and that goes double for next year in bringing two segments of our sport together at the one time and venue...

Re: ICSF

Hi Michal, The ICSF conference is over next three days. I would expect the official meeting report to be distributed to affiliates within two weeks. I am sure those attending will advise interested parties earlier. However the outcome may only be a decision on the Swedish proposal about dates, venue...

Re: ICSF

It is always possible to conduct a World Championship far more cheaply than has been the case in the past by having competitors set up and dismantle courts, competitors do all judging and recording, competitors do all administration for the event, everyone source their own accomodation, everyone pro...

Re: ICSF

Thanks Torsten, I have had many discussions with Heinz Maire Hengse and other German casters about casting in Germany and it is the same in each country. Very, very few fisherpersons become casters, fly or other. I do not think casters are elite, just dedicated. I think the same fishing organisation...

Re: ICSF

Thanks Lasse, I could not remember last year’s details either. Given that, I too trust 2020 will be less than Michal’s reported cost. I look forward to seeing the package from Sweden for both events.
