We have tried to keep the rules simple, but there is a lot of things to consider, so excuse us if we seem a bit too harsh. We just want to avoid misunderstandings.

Any fly tyer from any country is elegible.

Ineligible are persons involved in arranging and judging the FlyMeister 2001 tying contest and people employed by the sponsors.

Participation os free. There is no entry fee. Postage and other costs for sending in flies and entry forms will be covered by the contestants themselves.

Number of flies
A contestant can participate with one fly in each category.
That means that any participant can submit a maximum of six flies.

The flies and fully qualified contest form has to be in the hands of GFF staff member and contest official Bob Petti before or on November the 12th 2001. See the instructions for more details.

Any flies arriving after that date will be ineligible.
