Rules are made to create a level playing field for all, but some people just have to cheat in order to win. Perhaps it is as Rob suggests - weak management and enforcement. Very tight tackle inspections might weed out at least some of the more blatant skulduggery.
Ahhhh, but this thread was about adding weight to the fly against said "international rules"
The fips mouche rules allow added weight, as long as is in the dressing, and also allow any length of dressing, and hook size!
Would kind of kill of the suggested approach to bending the same "international rules"
