A question or two about the FIPS-Mouche Competition rules
« on: July 02, 2018, 05:07:06 PM »
Article 29.9 states that attactor chemicals cannot be used on flies.  Two questions:

1. Can sprays be used to remove or mask existing natural scent on flies (such as oils from the hand of the fly tyer or DEET);

2. If the answer to #1 is no, can flies be rubbed with dirt or natural materials from the lake to remove/mask existing scents on flies?

The answer is "No" to both questions. You are not allowed to add scent of any kind to your fly (natural or man made).

Cheers,

For me, the quality of a trout is not measured in inches or pounds, but rather by the journey and circumstances that allowed our paths to cross...
