IGFA World Line Class Records Wide Open...
As I posted in another thread, as of today the freshwater line class and tippet records are now wide open for women. Excuse the focus of the linked thread being posted as though to just the guys (as it was my intent to encourage them to get their wives and daughters out fishing) in that this really applies directly to all of you in this section.
In any case here is the link: http://www.theflyfishingforum.com/fo...ld-record.html
The IGFA is already set up to add new submissions as of today. Feel free to pose any questions about the IGFA or these now open records in either thread and i'll try to respond to them ASAP.
