Classic Salmon Fly Challenge 2008 Date: Wednesday 27 February, 2008

We are very proud to launch the first world class fly tying competition in Finland!

The rules were updated on the 28th of February 2008!

Helsinki Spey Clave and our associates are very proud to launch the first Finnish international level classic salmon fly tying competition. The purpose of this competition is to treasure the skill of classic salmon fly tying and to introduce less known old patterns to modern generations.


1. The competition is open to all fly tiers. There is no entry fee in the competition. The judges nor the members of the organizing party or their family may not enter the competition. The flies will be judged by a party of recognized classic salmon fly tyers.

2. The competition is run as a so called letter competition meaning that each participant ties his/her flies and sends them to the address given below.

3. There are TWO DIFFERENT COMPULSORY FLIES to be tied to enter the competition. Each participant may enter only by one set of flies. The winner will be determined by the total points of the both of the flies flies.

4. The flies entering the competition should be tied according to classic proportions typical for the current patterns.

5. The competition flies are to be tied into blind eye hooks that are ideal in style for the current pattern and type of fly. The sizes of the used hooks are set in the fly patterns.

6. Materials listed in the CITES Appendixes may be substituted with other suitable materials. Please check you local CITES regulations for more details, especially if attending the competition outside the EU. CITES I Appendix species MUST BE SUBSTITUTED with another suitable non CITES I species!

7. A closed envelope should follow each of the flies entering the competition. Each of the envelopes should be marked with the name of the fly. In the envelope there should be a note stating the participants name, address and an email address. If the participant is under 16 years old there should be a written certificate of the participant's age signed by his or her parents included to be included with the flies.

8. All flies entering the competition will automatically become property of the Helsinki Spey Clave. The flies will not be returned.

9. The flies should be packed with care and sent to the given address on the 30th of April 2008 at latest. Each participant is held responsible for his or her package being post marked no later than the 30th of April 2008 and that the flies will arrive in good condition. If the flies are sent outside the European Union the package should be clearly marked for the customs stating “Fishing Flies, No commercial Value”.

L-am mutat pentru ca merita aceeasi atentie si interes ca si celelate concursuri.
Postul nu a fost modificat, ci doar denumirea generica de "concurs" schimbata cu numele concursului.
