    I know this championship pretty much sounds Quiditch, but this is the one and only world cup of fly fishing!
    This year, 23 countries around the globe are participating: 18 from Europe, 1 from Africa, 2 from North America,
    and 2 from Asia Pacific.

    Let's update with the completion of the 4th and 5th sessions later.

    As of now (10 June), game is finished up to the 3rd session which place:

    #1: France with 107 placing, 41,340pts
    #2: England with 156 placing, 28,400pts
    #3: Czech Republic with 162 placing, 24,740pts
    #4: Finland with 181 placing, 17,240pts
    #5: Wales with 183 placing, 22,720pts
    #6: Poland with 189 placing, 15,660pts

    ...

    #22: Coratia with 280 placing, 6,640pts
    #23: Portugal with 303 placing, 3,300pts

    French outnumbers everyone with catching 49 fish so far.
    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?


    Rating Rule:

    Smaller the total number of placing in each session, larger the total numer of points the better.

    That's all Euro fishing! Dredging heavy arse flies through runs with boatloads of rules we just don't need or use here in the states.
    When all of our rivers become private and every run is worked over too much maybe then I'll get used to Euro-flyfishing. Until that time I'm glad to live where I do and fish as we do!
    Long live dry flies and strike indicators!

    dear Jackster,I think you misjudge French fishermen.I don't like fishing competitions but some of my friends take part in them.They're great on dry and nymph on sight,many of them firmly protested against the use of heavy nymphs and other indicators because they think that's not flyfishing.In my opinion I believe that if they're very often in the top five it's because here there are less and less trout due to silly regulations and the best spots are overfished so the fish are extremely difficult to catch.When they meet other conditions where the fish is far more abundant they find it easier.Moreover,the one I know are"complete anglers" able to adapt quickly to any situation and any place,some of them train hard for this.I agree with you when you say you're lucky to live in the US for I'm sure flyfishing is far better in your country than in mine,I'm ashamed of the behaviour of many of my compatriots who fill their baskets with 20cm trout
    If I often visit this forum it's because I've found a more friendly atmosphere and a far higher spirit here than on the french ones,so thanks a lot to all of you to set a good example

    Easy on, comrades!

    Sorry for bit late reply.
    I have accidentally taken lethal amount of laughter on "World Beard and Moustache Championship".
    It took me a cup of coffee spilled all over my aloha.

    As for my country, Japan, displayed the best gesture of modesty by intentionally finishing at 23rd place out of 23.

    In fact, I am recommending the tournament committee that they should credit 100pts to each fish eaten raw
