Wait and see for the revolution against the dynasty of Charles Ritz!
English proves that home of Hardy really executes the knowledge and physics of fly fishing.
Czech, no wonder the home of Mighty Czech Nymph.
Scotland. Too bad that they dropped from the 4th to the 9th after having bad session.
This proves that home game advantage is mimimal and make this championship quite fair.
As for USA and Japan... well...
I leave these kingdom of fishing tackle business at your disposal.
So, you should cast like Charles Ritz, use Hardy tackle, and tie the rig with Czech nymph to be most productive then.
Hey, at least Brazil and Argentina are not coming to this sport...yet?
