A: No, it not possible. According to the FIPS-Mouche Competition Rules v2015 article 13.4, a team may have only 1 designated reserve.

A: The wording is valid for the other guests (e.g. local people…) that are not part of the championship but they still would like to take part in. Of course all participants (competitors, team management and accompanying persons) have the award dinner included in the registration fee….

A: The reason for RM comes out from the specifics of the competition system in Slovakia and so that is why it was included into this document. Organizers worked last year very hard on negotiation with the local clubs (that managing the venues) to pick the best of the best waters for championships and honestly they did, as the amount of clubs willing to provide their waters for local competition unfortunately goes down. The chosen venues are quite heavily fished by the local leisure fishermen as well as by fly fishing competitors. Additionally most of them are annually loaded by local competitions (fly/spin fishing) some of them even twice a year. That is why our fly fishing committee was not able to omit some of them from the annual competition calendar for 2017 and there will be some local competitions organized in summer time on competition sections. It would be quite complicated to set various closures on various sectors, that is why FF committee decided to simplify it and set it common date for all of them. The organizers were clearly indicating it during the inspection held in September last year and it was approved by FIPS-Mouche delegate present.

A: All NON-MEMBER of Slovak Angling Association (Slovensky rybarsky zvaz) are required to obtain following allowances prior to fishing:

STATE LICENSE – you may get the state licenses in local fishing shops, or info centers and you will be required to provide personal details such as Name, Surname, Address, Date of Birth, Passport/ID number (the one you will have with you during your stay). Herewith the State license pricelist:

For a week (7 days) 1.50 Euro
For a month 3.00 Euro
For a year 7.00 Euro
For three years 17.00 Euro

LOCAL FISHING PERMIT(for fishery you want to fish) – usually sold by local fishing tackle shops or sale persons from the local fishing association (contact persons are/will be mentioned in sector descriptions – for more details click here). The local fishing permit price for NON-MEMBERS17.50 Euro per day (all state fisheries)

A: According to RM the competitors are allowed to fish on lake Dedinky (as well as on all other competition sectors) till August 21 (including) – see following link

A: Besenova can be fished during official as well as unofficial practice, no closure time

A: My personal recommendation is lake Besenova with very nice fish, or you can fish the trout lake in neighboring town Dobsina (fishery name VVN Dobsina 4-4100-4-1) – but it has quite bushy banks mostly might be challenging for casting….

A: If the competitor does not have own life jacket, the organizer will provide him one.
