It starts off with an event in Austria, in Saltzberg, "Lakeside Flycasting Festival 2016" which I plan to attend, to see Bernd and have a cast. There is a comp too so that should be fun. Afterwards a few of us are going to visit Hungary for a couple of days of casting and maybe fishing the Drava (depending on its water level) and then we head over to Bosnia for five days of fishing. I think this will be a great time, lots of fishing and casting. If you want to join us then please let me know. If you just plan to go to Austria then I look forward to meeting you there. If you want to come to Hungary then I need to organise the accommodation, food and wine tasting. If you fancy joining us for the entire duration then fantastic!
Something that I've hinted at and have been meaning to write for a while, is the great scene in flycasting that is the world championships. It is one of the few areas in flycasting that doesn't have any ego - it's difficult to keep your ego intact when you compete, because you have to be prepared to lose! But what makes it great for me is the sharing of information, the cross-team friendships, the continual drive for improvement and the way it tunes up your casting ability like no other. In short if you want to be the best flycaster you'll ever be, then compete. It's great fun too!
Mad day, lots of work to do, back later with lots of photos for Pic of the Day.
