Default Re: Casting questions from a rookie

I searched for fly casting competition rules. The World Championship and the Best of the West Competitions use WF fly lines. The ACA Tournament uses a shooting head and running line.


World Casting Championship Rules

http://www.wcflycasting.com/upload/Rules_Flycasting.pdf

Under Trout distance competition.

"2. Fly line: Scientific anglers mastery expert distance competition WF5F (orange, 120 ft.). The line shall not be modified in any way.'


Best of the West Competition Rules

ISE Sportsman Competitions

Under Equipment:

"Line: 90 ft, weight forward, floating"


American Casting Association Tournament Rules

http://www.americancastingassoc.org/...view=FitH,1078

Pg 25 under Angler Fly Distance rules:

"Line

a) Shooting head shall be no longer than thirty-one (31) feet nor shorter then twenty-eight (28) feet and shall weigh not more then three hundred ten (310) grains.

b) Running line - Unrestricted except that the diameter shall not be less than 0.015 inches.'
