    I know about it and the concept disgusts me

    Yep... I know of it. I don't pay much attention to it though.

    Is that the stuff that uses those stupid, restrictive Euro rules?

    I know about it and could care less. I have no use for competitive fishing.

    I have no use for the competition in fly fishing!!! Something about stocking a stream with trophy trout and having a tournament the next day or having a tournament on a stream when the fish are spawning doesn't speak to highly of the folks who participate in or put these tournaments on.

    I agree. The fun of fly fishing is the lack of competiveness except for that of the fight as a person against nature to survive. How many of those fish ever see a pan? How can you throw a bunch of fish in a restricted pond and call that competive?
