As you can see by the results, the Italian fly tyers did very well.  I must admit that it is a home grown competition and as such was heavily supported by the local tyers. Just the same, there were also a lot of great entries from around the world and they all have to stand up and be counted and the best flies won.  Congratulations Italy, you did well.  What was pleasing for me was that three Australian fly tyers had entries in this competition; they were Bob Frandsen, Mark Scheimer who came 4th in the open category and Hardy Fandrich.  Guys, please make contact with me.


That night it was another grand feast, great wines and a lot of laughs.  Naturally a lot of the discussion was about the quality of the flies submitted and how well the event had been run and supported internationally.
