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.

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.

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.

The Tasmanian Bream Classic 2013 Final Results

Day Two saw a small breeze at the start and weather was a little cooler. 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. Team Cranka slugged it out with no main motor all weekend and still came up with the goods, slotting them into second place with a top bag 5.670kg. Third place went to a father and son team with smiles all round for them. Another smooth and great tournament was had by all. With anglers looking forward to the final round on the Derwent River in Hobart.
