Havainto on ehdoton vain tulkinnat vaihtelevat.....



Uutta sääntöä 


saas nähdä miten tämä sääntömuutos otetaan vastaan ja tulkitaan...



To all members: Hello, FIPS-Mouche likes to clarify, before the start of the championships, the description of a Fly Fishing Line, so there will be NO misunderstandings. We see a lot of so called "Nymph fishing lines" appearing on the market and it is our duty to inform our members about the definition of a "Factory made FLY FISHING LINE" and to set standards. We consulted one of the world leaders in the producing of fly fishing lines and he is clear. He also congratulated us for setting this standard: I believe FIPS-Mouche is making a good decision to create a standard, and that the quality of the competition will benefit from maintaining a sense of fly fishing without sacrificing the ability to make ultra-fine presentations for the competitors. We accepted his vision on it and we decided following: REGARDING FLY FISHING LINES: THE ABSOLUTE SMALLEST COATED DIAMETER WE CONSIDER TO BE A FLY LINE PRODUCT IS 0,55mm (.022") his complete text is: ''Definition of a fly line - for tournament angling purposes: A fly line is any core material fully encapsulated by a secondary coating, with enough weight and ability to transfer energy to propel leader and fly/flies. The first part is easy to define, but the second part falls into the gray area where anglers can achieve an advantage by pushing the limit of having a thinner/lighter product. A taper isn't necessary to achieve this if the line has proper mass to transfer energy, so taper shouldn't be a requirement. Therefore, the most effective way to create a standard is by weight. Using a standard like the AFTMA 30' weight point as the measuring stick presents a problem, as the majority of tournament anglers use leaders near the maximum length, and often the fly line that is effectively being used would be the first 5-15 feet. A manufacturer could circumvent a weight standard at 30 feet by loading the rear end of the taper with diameter/weight, leaving the tip section too thin to be considered a fly line and to transfer energy to a leader - allowing the flies to be fished as if only monofilament leader was used. The ideal method would be to choose a length that is commonly going to be exposed from the reel while fishing in tournament conditions as the standard, and apply a certain minimum weight that this length must exceed to be considered a true fly line. The thinnest and lightest coated diameter that Cortland Line considers to be a fly line is .026'' or .66mm. This coated diameter carries a weight of 1 gram / 3.3 meters. We believe this could be a fair standard, allowing for lines to be level or tapered while still maintaining enough weight and energy transfer to maintain a sense of fly fishing. For comparison, the smallest diameter Cortland Line considers to be a fly line type product is .022''/.55mm coated fly line, which carries a weight of 1 gram/4 meters" Best regards, Paul Vekemans president FIPS-Mouche
