Jimmy Green
Casting Competition


Equipment
Rod: Must be model that is or has been available for sale to the general public
15’1” maximum length
Line: Floating synthetic line, either full line or shooting head. No restrictions on running line.
Leader: 9 foot minimum, 15 foot maximum.
Fly: Will be supplied

Required casts
Casters can use whatever cast they choose in four situations:

Line from the right – over right shoulder and over left shoulder
Line from the left – over right shoulder and over left shoulder

Casting rules
Change of direction will be set by markers at about 40 degrees (same as 2006)
Caster will be in water – about 3 feet deep
There will be a barrier 33 feet behind the caster. No penalty for hitting it, but it will
affect the cast
Fly must anchor in front of caster
If Perry Poke used, only one “dump” allowed per cast and fly may not leave water on “dump”.
Once a cast is begun, it counts as a scoring cast.
An inadvertent “extra” cast in a required category will not be counted against the caster’s
allowed casts in any other category, but will use the caster’s time.

The Competition
Qualifying will be held on Saturday morning with top 10 casters going to finals on
Sunday morning

Qualifying •3 casts each for the 4 required casts. Total score is total of best distances
for each of the 4 required casts.
•Time limit is 6 min. with 2 min. warmup
Finals •3 casts each for the 4 required casts. Total score is total of best distances
for each of the 4 required casts.

Friday practice time (20 min) at official casting station can be reserved by signup.


Tie-breakers

In the event of a tie for any place, the tie will broken by totaling each competitor’s second best casts in each of the four categories.



Notes to 2007 Spey O Rama Rules

There are only three fairly small changes to the rules from 2006 to 2007.

1. Qualifying

Competitors will have three casts in each or the four categories, rather than the two they were allowed in 2006

2. Back barrier

The back barrier will be approximately 33 feet behind the caster. The most significant change is that the barrier will be continuous, more substantial and denser, so likely to kill any cast that hits it. This will make a Perry Poke with a long headed line impractical or at least risky.

3. Tie breakers

In case of a tie for first place (or any other place) it will be broken by taking each competitor’s total of his/her second best casts in each of the four categories.


Women's Division

The Women's Division will have the same rules as the Men's Division, with one exception:

The casting station for women will be at the 50 foot mark in the pool, 20 feet farther forward than the casting station for men.
We will have separate markers for line placement to start the casts, so the angle change will be exactly the same as for men.


Note: The purpose and effect of this one rule difference is to make the water shallower (6-7") to compensate for the differences in height between men and women.

The more women competitors the better. Sign up for this fun competition!!
