Re: ICSF

In the BFCC tournaments on grass, is the cast distance measured directly from the casting box to the fly, or do you use court edge tapes and measure across to the fly? I assumed the former, but was James’s example an exception or the normal way casts are measured? John Hi John, At the BFCC every ca...

Re: ICSF

...but I have also experienced well meaning non competitors judging horribly wrong.... Lasse The best example at the BFCC I saw was this - the markers are given two sticks, one to plant where the fluff lands and a second to line up perpendicular with the first against the tape. This particular pers...

Re: ICSF

I received no funding from the ICSF for 2018 whatsoever. Cheers Lee I think this situation has to change immediately if the ICSF are going to have any relevance in the fly casting arena. How can it be that we have a governing body, with 27,000 Euro cash sitting in the bank, relying on an individual...

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.

Re: ICSF

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.
