Behind us are two days of TROUT UNION CUP ''TOUR 1'', Czech Republic 2015. Tournament which has hosted 23 teams - 92 competitors from even 12 countries on a fallacious river Bečva in city of Valašske Meziriči. It was a competition of best trout competitors of the world and takes a place on a top of tournaments by these proportions.

From the begining of creation and organizing this event, with so many interests, we knew that this tournament will be a very interesting with a healthy and quality competition. First of all, river Bečva is not an mountain river and as such it's configuration is very different. From calm river parts to parts with strong current and stream. In addition to that on this tournament applied best competitors in the world. So, for a best qualifications, from competitors was expected no any mistakes.

In front organization team of TUCAS Sport Fishing Association and our mutual friend Stanislav Pernicky, as representative of the host, with city Valašske Meziriči and Czech Fishing Comittee organization of Trout Union Cup was a very big challenge. We needed to secure everything on a highest possible level. Long preparation and previous experience was necessary. Every compliment must be given to a selfless help from hosts and all other who participate in organization in any way.

On this occasion River Bečva was restocked by 1.300 kg of rainbow and brown trout in schedule: for training with 200 kg, for 1st day of competition with  600 kg and for a 2nd day of competition with 500 kg. Fish was mixed sizes between 200 grams and 800 grams but mostly sized around 200-300 grams. Also, river Bečva have a naturally big population of wild trouts where some specimen units are very well sized which provide unforgetable fight when cought.


Competitors are hardly wait for begining of competition. First signals gave vent to competitors and fishing started. From the begining, domestic teams: Czech, Slovakia and Poland shows their skills and advantage between others on rivers like this one. It is a question of training and team work for which one we can congratulate. After 4 legs by 45 minutes it was cought 1.264 fishes. Fantastic number of coughts guarateed to competitors show and joy.

After collecting results we made clasification for 1st day. Domestic teams confirmed they advantage and takes first 8 places in individual classification.

On captain's meeting we made a new drawing for second day of tournament. Team captain's didn't make any substitutions or team changes. River was restocked with a fresh 500 kg of rainbow trout and everything was ready for a start.
Second day of competition started. From the begining, leaders from Day 1 show they wish and fight to remain on top. Fishing was fantastic, catches were one after the other. After 1st leg of 45 minutes many competitors returned with more than 20 catches in all sectors. Ablosute record was made by a Jiri Špada from Czech-1 team who catch 45 fishes in 45 minutes. After 4 legs by 45 minutes competitors catch amazing 1.701 trout. That was really breathtaking.
It was a excellent day for Bulgaria-1 team. With team places 1-3-5-1 they made a brilliant step forward. Georgi Getov and Todor Kostadinov were sector winners and pulled the team to 1st place. From before Trout Union Cup's we we are familiar about their skills and we were know that they can suprise us all. Slovakian teams 1 nad 2 confirmed they stand on top with places: Slovakia-1 (4-4-2-16) and Slovakia-2 (5-2-4-12).

After collecting all results and making calculation for both days, hard work of Bulgaria ''1'' team has payed off. They stand on top of the list. Slovakia ''2'' and Slovakia ''1'' team confirms they place high on a list with great team work and skills. Suprise on list was International-1 team with competitors Marek Rojtas (Slovakia), Peter Marcin (Slovakia), David Vojacek (Czech Republic) and Martin Foltyn (Czech Republic) who also made excellent results. But, by the rules of Trout Union Cup international teams can be ranked only in individual category and so we acted. They were on top of the table and are worth of mentioning.
