Can any of the comp boys tell me why the size of the fly and the no added weight rules are in place would a maximum size of hook say a size 10 and let the good fly dressers get to work on their wonderful creations not be better ?

My understanding that the no weight rule is on safety grounds, but I'm not sure it's any safer to throw a DI7 with 3 Blobs than it is a floating line with a single goldhead buzzer on it?

I definately don't know any expert,especially competition experts with only 4 lines


My thoughts are that the tackle, or lack of tackle isn't the major disadvantage... A greater advantage for the competition anger { and it's in the same ball park } is down to money. Being able to afford practise sessions / accomodation etc, etc along with being able to afford to enter multipe comps. year in year out not only keeps you sharp....... but gives you intimate knowlege on multiple venues, which you cannot learn in two minutes......... sure, you can get lucky or get it right on the day......... but to remain consistant in water time and knowlege costs. Dosh in the right hands....... is an advantage.

Maybe someone would like to post a set of typical competition rules for discussion ?
That might give us all a chance.

Not blowing of steam at all jim,ive no interest in comp fishing never have had but just like black-don its just something ive wondered about in the past

If two guys ( or girls ) are level experience wise/skill etc but one is poor and the other rich,then surely the one who's rich and turns up with loads gear/who can afford to practice/stay at digs near by has an advantage from the start?

If booking a player the team to have fewer than the required minimum number players, then the match is abandoned; minimum for a team is 7 players

all i can talk from is experience, iv never cast a line in anger and couldnt be ar5ed wi someone tellin me what when and where to fish, but a regular fishin partner of mine is an internationalist and has amassed loads more gear (lines mainly). Id say our outings together are pretty even, the last we both blanked!, but iv never felt his line collection has given him that much of an advantage TBO, and when he has outfished me i put it down to his better, more accurate casting and presentation and more experience of fish behaviour, an extra line wont give you that
