Question Re: Invitation to the 27th Slovenian Open Fly Tying Championship 2014

Not sure if this is 'odd' or 'interesting' for a first post.

Fly tyers can be masters of making things complicated!

You're only limited by lack of imagination. Be creative, experiment.

Hey Fred,
Just whip up some of those world famous Miss Judy Spey patterns and send them in. You could win millions!


......and no, I'm not opening up any of those pdf files without the mods checking them out first.

Hey guys,

no commercial at all, since we try to keep fly fishing industry away from the Championship, to keep its main purpose and essence untouched and to remain independant in all possible aspects... And Fishing Association of Slovenia is successfully doing this for 27th year...

Prizes for winning flies are usually licences for top Slovenian rivers and fly fishing products, manufactured in very small series by the Slovenian craftsmen.

Looking forward to see your patterns!

Kindly invited,
Lucky

p.s.: posted link to the pdf file is perfectly safe... no need to worry about it

p.s.2: I have changed the pdf link to the report, to the one, posted on FFP, for your convenience...
