Well done Italy and also Scotland. Unlucky for Ireland the home nation.

A disappointing aspect of this world tournament, is that out of the 37 countries who might have entered, only 10 countries actually entered. The countries who took part were Finland, France, Ireland, Italy, Japan, Netherlands, Scotland, South Africa, Sweden & USA.

From what I was told, it would appear that money was a deciding factor in most cases, for countries not entering, where individuals would have been expected to pay their own way.

This is quite sad for a world event, but I suspect it must be pretty difficult to get commercial sponsorship for international fly fishing teams, where media exposure is almost non-existent.

I have fished 2 weeks this year so far out of Oughterard and never heard about it, they should have done a lot more with their advertising.

There's no money for advertising each competitor had to pay 1100 euro and for the majority it was paid personally
