Igor Tyapkin (RUS)
Igor Tyapkin was the first Russian to pass the difficult Master exam, and he is also considered the busiest of all casting instructors in his country. Igor travels across the vast country almost every weekend from spring to the end of the season to grow its fly fishing community and teach casting and fly tying to enthusiastic seminar participants. For this reason, the popular instructor has a very high profile in Russia. Igor is also an avid fly fisherman who has fished almost every interesting spot in Russia. Therefore Igor is the perfect representative of his country in the EFFA Flycasting Department.
