Weather and ash clouds permitting all boat angling eyes are turning to Dalvik in Iceland where 142 anglers from thirteen countries are making their way to fish in the EFSA European Boat and Line Class Championships.
The latest ash plume has disrupted some of the travel arrangements, particularly from Ireland and Scotland but with luck the entrants will all arrive in the land of ice and fire for the start of the event on Monday. The Russian contingent is already in the area for practice sessions.
For those not already on their way the organisers have arranged for pre-ordering of lead weights, practice session bait and event commemorative polo shirts. Ordering details here.
Regular updates from the event will be posted on the site.
