Rule 17 Double Fall Retrieve

Postby Trevor Stevens » Thu 12 Dec 2019 5:09 pm

I refer to the rules review to come in to effect from 1st January 2020.
It has been suggested that the removal of the sentence in Rule 17 “A mark will not be cast when a dog is on the way to a blind” has opened the door to this type of retrieve. This is NOT the case. The removal was an editorial issue only as the definition of Double Fall Retrieve is only about mark retrieves. Reference to blinds was considered to be irrelevant.
The different types of Retrieves are defined in clauses 9 to 21. They do not include the combination of a mark retrieve being cast when a dog is on the way to a blind, and therefore this is not a legal combination.
