World Fly Fishing Championships, Norway 2013 Summary

It is disappointing to travel this far and get such poor fishing. For the Aussies, the planning starts more than 18 months before the event and you can’t help but feel a little deflated once everything is over. A ninth place finish was not what we had hoped for and although a ‘podium’ finish might seem a long way off, it is certainly achievable. There were many lessons learned from this year’s event.

New Reports by Christopher Bassano from the World Fly Fishing Championships

Please find eleven reports from Christopher Bassano.
First Report
I thought I would send you all a quick email from Europe as I had promised I would. As you will know, the team arrived in Norway this morning for two weeks of practice before the official competition week.Unfortunately, I have been unable to join them in Mosjoen as I have been unwell and in hospital since Saturday. It turned out that I had a bad case of gastro and my antibiotics seem to be doing the job. As I am currently in Wales, I will join the team in the evening of the 4th of August.

Flyfishing World Championships Fundraiser

Next week we will have some tackle to give away, so stay tuned.
Chance to bag some cricket and fishing gear.
I am a member of the Van Dieman Fly Fishers Club and for many years we have had representatives in Australian and World teams.
This year we have four members in the Australian team going to fish the World Championships in Norway.
A fund raiser is being held 1 June and you are invited to attend.
There are some great prizes. See the flyer attached.
Kind regards, Mike Stevens

Pirtek Challenge

Well what can i say apart from it rained,.. the fish stayed inside out of the rain. But there were three members of Tassiepaddlers that didnt let the weather or the catching of no fish worry them. These members were Chipz,Spork and Simmo. All i can say it was great company and fantastic time together on and off the water. We got into a harty breakky before the Pirtek Challenge started.

Team Bream It On backed up their lead with another good bag leaving them on top of the leader board with Josh Williams taking out the Cranka big Bream with a 1.520kg.
