Fly Tying Competition

German Freestyle Masters 2014

A whole new challenge to all fly tiers!

With a new concept for a Fly Tying Championship we elected, in May 2014, the German Freestyle Master.

Everyone was cordially invited to take part in this Fly Tying Championship!

 

Qualifying:

  • Everyone had to tie one sand eel imitation in order to impress the jury with it and qualify for one of the 6 places in the final.
  • The deadline was the 13th of May 2014.
  • Thanks to our jury: Andy Weiß (D), André Miegies (NL) and Johan Put (NL).
  • Everyone had to send his/her fly with the name of the tyer and brief tying instructions to:

            Alexander Knecht, Klinkerwisch 6, 24107 Kiel (Germany)

 

Final:

The final took place on Saturday, live, at our festival and offered every visitor the opportunity to follow this exciting competition and to watch the finalists at their vice.

Each finalist received a bag with various tying materials; the content was the same for everyone, and then had an hour to tie a fly pattern of their choice.

Everyone was allowed to add own material either.

 

Spontaneity, creativity and technical tying skill were required!

 

Attractive prizes for each finalist were involved!

 

Thanks a lot for participating everyone!!!
