    Default BFCC Casting Event near Glasgow - Sunday Sept 14th

    The next BFCC casting event is in Fintry which is located between Glasgow and Stirling (Location | Fintry Sports & Recreation Club)

    At least 6 CLA Finalists have already confirmed attendance at this event; plus 6 other people have confirmed and 7 others have said maybe

    We'll start at 9:30am with the usual arrangement of tuition and starting the competition with the T120 and T38 events in the morning followed by 5wt, 7wt and ST27 in the afternoon. We can arrange record attempts in between the events during the day and we'll run the accuracy event as well.

    Refreshments will be available from the Sports Club bar or the pub close by.

    Further information is on the BFCC Facebook page https://www.facebook.com/pages/The-B...9923289?ref=hl and our website Calendar | BFCC - Home Of Uk Fly Casting

    I'd better start practicing....haven't cast since the CLA!!

    Looking forwards to a good turnout.

    BTW can you local guys please organise nice weather and a steady unidirectional breeze.

    See you all there

    It's surrounded by trees so the wind should not be a problem.

    Only a few days to the BFCC event in Fintry, so here's the programme:

    Starting at 9:30 with casting tuition from Alberto Laidlaw.

    Whilst tuition is ongoing, we'll start the distance casting events, firstly the T120, T38 and a new event just for Fintry, the 55g salmon overhead (tackle kindly provided by Ben Dixon).

    Then after lunch, we'll run the 5#, 7# and ST27 distance events, followed by the new Accuracy event to the World Championship rules, but on grass and with all entrants using the Club's 6wt rod.

    The prizes for the events and the overall winner will be presented at around 3:30pm. It's possibly going to be one of our most competitive events!

    Fintry Sports Club's cafe is open all the time we'll be there, providing drinks, snacks and light meals.

    Looking forward to a great event in a beautiful location

    I did once see someone, who will remain nameless, tie himself up so badly with the running line during a shooting head event that he had to take his shoes off to untangle himself
