Innovative Fly Fisher Forum's Fly Tying Night will be held in the private dining room at the Home Restaurant in Maple Ridge from 6:00pm - 9:00pm on Tuesday, May 1, 2018. Everyone is welcome to attend our open fly tying nights and join in on a fun and informative night out on the town!

The theme for May's Fly Tying Night will be "Ice-off Fly Patterns for Interior Lakes"... Fly tyers are free to tie whatever they'd like to tie. I'll leave the floor open to others that are willing to share a few of their favorite pattern(s).

This is a great chance for you to refill the vacant slots in some of your fly boxes, and prepare for next season's recreational angling trips and competitions. It's also a great way to learn a few new tips and meet some other fly tyers in your region, and join in on the conversations/fishing stories from this past season and plans for this season...

The Home Restaurant is a family-oriented restaurant, so youths are welcome. They aren't charging us for the use of their private banquet room for our tying nights, but the deal is that you'll have to order either a meal or appetizer, or a pie and coffee, tea, or pop in order to fill a spot at the table - I can personally testify that they make the best coffee and pies in town!!!

This is truly a fun time with a great group of people/fly tyers. It's also a great way to hone your fly tying skills and learn some new patterns, so please consider coming out to join in on the fun and share a few laughs! Newcomers to the forum and non-members are most welcome at this and all of our events!! :)

Please email Todd Oishi at: toishis@gmail.com or post on this thread if you plan to attend, so I can get an accurate headcount for the seating.

Notice to potential applicants for the 2019 Australia World Championships
https://www.wffc2019.com
 
The 39th FIPS-Mouche World Fly Fishing Championships and Conservation Symposium will be held in Tasmania, Australia, from 30th November to 8th December, 2019. Tasmania has some of the best fishing in Australia and the lakes are known all over the world for the quality of the fishing.
Fly Fishing Canada will select the team to represent Canada in November, 2018. Potential applicants should expect the “call-to arms” by the beginning of November and Fly Fishing Canada will announce the team on Saturday 1st December, 2018.
To be eligible to apply for these teams you must be a member in good standing of Fly Fishing Canada. Details of how to become a member will be announced shortly. Team selection will be made by a committee made up of members of your Board of Directors plus at least two past captains of international competitions, that are not members of the Board. The selection committee will vote to select five competitors per team plus an optional reserve (who’s role will be made clear at the time of their acceptance of that position on the team). The captain and manager will be appointed by FFC once the team has been confirmed.
 
The process of selecting the teams will be based mainly on three years of NRP rankings starting with 2018 and working back. If you are thinking of applying you need to remember that the NRP system was modified substantially for 2018 and to maximize your points you should enter river, lake and mixed river/lake competitions. The best way to get on the team is to show you have excellent skills in both lake and river fishing and can apply them in tough competition. For this selection process, the cut-off date for accumulating NRP’s will be 30th October, 2018.
 
Other deciding factors in the team selections will include;
- a "team first" mentality
- a specific skill set suited to certain venues
- a great ambassador for Canada and FFC at international events.

Donald Thom
Chair of FFC National Teams
P.S. Each year FFC pays thousands of dollars to various organizations for the right to enter teams in championships like the Worlds and Commonwealth. This year the fees have jumped substantially and the board is looking at ways to recover theses costs in a way that is fair to all members and allows us to continue competing in International championships.
Avis aux candidats potentiels pour les Championnats du monde d'Australie de 2019
https://www.wffc2019.com

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------


Le 39ème Championnat du monde de pêche à la mouche FIPS-Mouche et le Symposium sur la conservation se tiendront en Tasmanie, Australie, du 30 novembre au 8 décembre 2019. La Tasmanie compte parmi les meilleures pêcheries d'Australie et les lacs sont connus dans le monde entier de la pêche.

Pêche a la Mouche sélectionnera l'équipe qui représentera le Canada en novembre 2018. Les candidats potentiels devraient s'attendre à recevoir l'appel aux armes d'ici le début de novembre et Pêche a la Mouche Canada annoncera l'équipe le samedi 1er décembre 2018.

Pour être admissible à présenter une demande pour ces équipes, vous devez être membre en règle de Pêche a la Mouche. Les détails sur la façon de devenir membre seront annoncés sous peu. La sélection de l'équipe sera faite par un comité composé de membres de votre conseil d'administration et d'au moins deux capitaines de compétitions internationales, qui ne sont pas membres du conseil d'administration. Le comité de sélection votera pour sélectionner cinq concurrents par équipe plus une réserve optionnelle (dont le rôle sera précisé au moment de l'acceptation de ce poste par l'équipe). Le capitaine et le gérant seront nommés par FFC une fois l'équipe confirmée.
 
Le processus de sélection des équipes se fondera principalement sur trois années de classement du PNR à partir de 2018 et sur le retour en arrière. Si vous envisagez de postuler, vous devez vous rappeler que le système NRP a été modifié de façon substantielle pour 2018 et pour maximiser vos points, vous devez participer à des compétitions fluviales, lacustres et mixtes rivière / lac. La meilleure façon de faire partie de l'équipe est de montrer que vous avez d'excellentes aptitudes à la pêche dans les lacs et les rivières et que vous pouvez les appliquer dans une compétition difficile. Pour ce processus de sélection, la date butoir pour l'accumulation des PNR sera le 30 octobre 2018.
 
D'autres facteurs décisifs dans les choix d'équipe incluront:
- Une mentalité de "l'équipe d'abord"
- Un ensemble de compétences spécifiques adapté à certains lieux
- Un grand ambassadeur pour le Canada et FFC lors d'événements internationaux.

Donald Thom

Président des équipes nationales de FFC

P.S. Chaque année, FFC verse des milliers de dollars à diverses organisations pour avoir le droit de participer à des championnats comme les Mondiaux et le Commonwealth. Cette année, les frais ont considérablement augmenté et le conseil d'administration cherche des moyens de recouvrer ces coûts d'une manière équitable pour tous les membres et nous permet de continuer à participer aux championnats internationaux.

I'm very pleased and proud to announce that the Innovative Fly Fisher Forum is celebrating its 6th Year Anniversary today!

It was back on March 14, 2012 when we officially went online with our new fly fishing forum and community. Over past 6 years, with the help and input of the forum members and our moderators, we've built the Innovative Fly Fisher Forum into one of the best and most resourceful fly fishing forums and communities on the internet, and will continue to encourage its growth.

What started out as a vision 6 years ago today, has now grown into an amazing forum and community where members from over 24 countries have come to together to thoughtfully discuss and share their theories, ideas, and innovations on fly patterns and tying; stillwater and river fishing techniques; equipment and gear; fly fishing reports and photography; and competition angling - while making some new and great friendships around the globe.

The participation and contributions of our forum members has been the driving force behind our success and ever-growing membership. We currently have a total of 23,739 Posts in 2,890 Topics, and a membership of 1,144 - not to mention the hundreds of lurkers and visitors that regularly visit the forum.

We've also been successful in bringing fly fishers together for well over a 100 fly fishing clinics, competitions and events for youth and the general public, as well as our monthly fly tying nights (my goal has been to hold at least 2 events per month). We have even been successful in enticing participants from the U.K. and Europe to travel and attend several of our events!

As of last year, in a partnership with the good people at the Highland Valley Copper Mine, our organizing committees, forum members, and the Innovative Fly Fisher Forum, has helped to raise well over $155,000.00 for B.C. Children's Hospital Fund, and several thousand dollars for Fly Fishing Canada's youth fly fishing programs and national fly fishing teams.

In closing, I want to personally thank Chris Puchniak for all of his hard work, support, and endless hours posting topics and replies, answering emails, and phone calls. This forum wouldn't have been possible without your involvement, sacrifices, patience, and friendship. I also want to thank all of the forum members for making this Innovative Fly Fisher Forum a possibility and such a huge success!

Cheers,
Todd

       ----------------------------------------------------------------------------

• All competitions seeking sanctioning and inclusion on the Leader Board must be submitted to the board members at least 30 days prior to the date of the event and must be open to all league members.
• The opening date for registration for each event must be announced on this forum at least 7 days prior to registrations being accepted.
• Registration must be accepted on a first come, first served basis, with the event organizer(s) being guaranteed a spot(s) at that competition (maximum of 2 spots can be reserved for event organizers).


>>>  NEW FOR 2018:  <<<
A competitors best 3 river results (maximum of 1800 points) and best 3 lake results (maximum of 1800 points) will be used to calculate their overall points and standing on the British Columbia Fly Fishing League's Leader Board. In the event of a tie at the end of the season; fish points will be the first tie breaker, followed by fish numbers. A fish-off will be used to break any ties that may occur for the medals (Top 3 positions)...

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

About the British Columbia Fly Fishing Leader Board:
The individual points that are recorded on the British Columbia Fly Fishing Leader Board will consist of the competition points that a competitor has earned at individual competitions during the competition season, which starts on November 15, 2017 and ends on November 15, 2018. The results of the season will be finalized and posted by November 20th, and medals and trophies will be presented at an awards ceremony and banquet that will be held on the last weekend of November.

Competitors are free to compete in as many competitions as they're able to attend, but their total points on the leader board are calculated based on their 3 best finishes at the river competitions (maximum of 1800 points) and their 3 best finishes at the stillwater competitions (maximum of 1800 points) that are held within the province of British Columbia. This system will allow competitors the opportunity to improve their individual standing by culling poor performances at past competitions, and replacing them with better performances. At the end of the competition season all competitors will start out the new season with zero points on the leader board.

Fish Points System:
Fish Points System for Rivers:
The leader board's fish point system that will be used for river competitions is as follows: All eligible fish will be scored as 500 Point, which will completely eliminate the need to handle the fish and ensure a quick release for every fish caught.

Fish Point System for Lakes:
The leader board's fish point system that will be used for lake competitions is as follows: All eligible fish will be measured in water troughs and scored as 100 points per fish, and 20 points per centimeters.


The Formula for Scoring Points:
Here's a breakdown on how many points will be awarded for all future competitions the points and how the new point system works. Please note that the Point Gap increases with each additional day that is added for multiple-day competitions, which recognizes and rewards the competitors based on the increased "degree of difficulty" and effort that's required in order to achieve a top finish at those competitions:.

The formula that's used for calculating the points at a competition with 24 competitors has been set as the maximum number of points that can be awarded at these competitions. A minimum of 12 competitors is required at a competition (A.K.A. a Mini-comp) in order for its results to be included on the leader board.

Competition Levels for Awarding Points:
Competitions will be scored using the following caps on the maximum points that a competitor can be awarded at a competition with 24 or more competitors:
1 day competitions (minimum of two, 3 hour sessions): 600 points for 1st place   ( base formula applies )
2 day competitions (minimum of four, 3 hour sessions): 900 points for 1st place   ( base formula X 1.5 )
3 Day Competitions (minimum of five, 3 hour sessions): 1200 points for 1st place ( base formula X 2 )

Here are the points that would be awarded at the following competitions:

2018 SEASON LEADER FOR THE BCFFL LEADER BOARD:

British Columbia Competitive Fly Fishing league's Leader Board (based on 2 competitions with 24 competitors):


About the British Columbia Fly Fishing League Leader Board:
The individual points that are recorded on the British Columbia Fly Fishing League's leader board will consist of the competition points that a competitor has earned at individual competitions throughout the competition season, which starts on January 1st and ends on November 15, 2018 The results of the season will be finalized after that date, and medals and trophies will be presented at an awards ceremony and banquet that will be held on the last weekend of November 2018.

Competitors are free to compete in as many competitions as they're able to attend, but their total points on the leader board are calculated based on their 3 best finishes at the river competitions (maximum of 2400 points) and their 3 best finishes at the stillwater competitions (maximum of 2400 points) that are held within the province of British Columbia. A competitor's results from 3 day competitions with both river and stillwater sessions will be added to their total points (maximum of 2400 points) in a separate category. This system will allow competitors the opportunity to improve their individual standing by culling poor performances at past competitions, and replacing them with better performances. At the end of the competition season all competitors will start out the new season with zero points on the leader board.

Event Sanctioning Requirements:
• The British Columbia Fly Fishing League's leader board includes the results from all fly fishing competitions and championships that comply with FIPS-Mouche rules and are held within British Columbia during the competition season.
• All competitions seeking sanctioning and inclusion on the Leader Board must be submitted to the board members at least 30 days prior to the date of the event and must be open to all league members.
• Competitors are encouraged to organize competitions in their region, as there are no limits to the number of competitions that can be held within a season.

• Registration must be accepted on a first come, first served basis, with organizer(s) being guaranteed a spot(s) at that competition (maximum of 2 spots can be reserved for event organizers).

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------

POINT SYSTEM FOR COMPETITIONS:

The point system that is used provides a "tighter gap" between the positions that the competitors score, which will guarantee that no one is untouchable after just a single top performance, and thus, will encourage greater participation by those that wish to advance and those that are defending their lead on the Leader Board, which will ultimately generate a higher level of excitement and activity amongst the members of the League and encourage newcomers to our sport.

Here's a breakdown on how many points will be awarded for all future competitions the points and how the new point system works. Please note that the Point Gap increases with each additional day that is added for multiple-day competitions, which recognizes and rewards the competitors based on the increased "degree of difficulty" and effort that's required in order to achieve a top finish at those competitions (based on 24+ competitors):

14th place=  275 points        413 points         550 points
15th place=  250 points        375 points         500 points
16th place=  225 points        338 points         450 points
17th place=  200 points        300 points         400 points
18th place=  175 points        263 points         350 points
19th place=  150 points        225 points         300 points
20th place=  125 points        188 points         250 points
21st place=  100 points        150 points         200 points
22nd place=   75 points        113 points         150 points
23rd place=    50 points          75 points         100 points
24th place=    25 points          38 points           50 points
                 (25 point gap)  (37.5 point gap)  (50 point gap)
-----------------------------------

25 points is used as the base score for a last place finish for all single day competitions, with 25 points being the gap between all of the positions for single day competitions with up to 24 competitors. This format will reward the competitors with a greater amount of points when there's a greater the number of competitors participating at that particular competition, but the base will always remain as 25 points for last place:

Single Day "Mini-comps" (18+ competitors):
1st place=  450 points   
2nd place= 425 points   
3rd place= 400 points   
4th place= 375 points   
5th place=  350 points   
6th place= 325 points   
7th place= 300 points   
8th place= 275 points   
9th place= 250 points   
10th place= 225 points   
11th place= 200 points   
12th place= 175 points   
13th place= 150 points   
14th place= 125 points   
15th place= 100 points   
16th place= 75 points 
17th place= 50 points 
18th place= 25 points

---------------------------

Single Day "Mini-comps" (12+ competitors):
1st place=  300 points   
2nd place= 275 points   
3rd place= 250 points   
4th place= 225 points   
5th place= 200 points   
6th place= 175 points   
7th place= 150 points   
8th place= 125 points   
9th place= 100 points   
10th place= 75 points 
11th place= 50 points 
12th place= 25 points

The new point system for 2016 and onwards will make it a whole lot simpler and require less effort for competitors to calculate their points and understand what's required in order to advance on the Leader Board.

--------------------------------------------------------

Point Gap for competitions with less than 24 Competitors:
The point gaps remain constant regardless of the number of competitors in attendance. The last place person will always be awarded the same amount of points, which are based on the number of days of the competitions: 25 points at a single day competition; 38 points at a 2 day competition; and 50 points at a 3 day competition.

The maximum points awarded for 1st place for 1 day mini-competitions with less than 12 competitors will be based on the number of competitors X 25 points. For example: 10 competitors X 25 points = 250 points for first place and the point scale.

Calculating the points is a very simple process with this formula - with little more effort being required than just a quick glance at the charts or doing your own math.

Point Scale based on number of competitors       1 Day Comp    2 Day Comp     3 Day Comp
1st place at a competition with 24 competitors=    600 points       900 points       1200 points
1st place at a competition with 23 competitors=    575 points       863 points       1150 points
1st place at a competition with 22 competitors=    550 points        825 points       1100 points
1st place at a competition with 21 competitors=    525 points        788 points       1050 points
1st place at a competition with 20 competitors=    500 points        750 points       1000 points
1st place at a competition with 19 competitors=    475 points        713 points         950 points
1st place at a competition with 18 competitors=    450 points        675 points         900 points
1st place at a competition with 17 competitors=    425 points        638 points         850 points
1st place at a competition with 16 competitors=    400 points        600 points         800 points
1st place at a competition with 15 competitors=    375 points        563 points         750 points
1st place at a competition with 14 competitors=    350 points        525 points         700 points
1st place at a competition with 13 competitors=    325 points        488 points         650 points
1st place at a competition with 12 competitors=    300 points        450 points         600 points   
Point Gap for each position after 1st place=        (25 point gap)  (37.5 point gap)  (50 point gap)

--------------------------------------------------------

Point Gap for competitions with more than 24 Competitors:
The Maximum points awarded for a 1st place finish remain constant, but the Point Gap at all competitions with more than 24 competitors decreases (tightens) based on the number of competitors competing at those competitions.

For example; at a 3 Day Competition with 50 competitors the following formula is used for calculating the Point Gap between the positions:
Step 1: 1200 (point scale for 1st place) - 50 (no. of competitors) = 1150.
Step 2: 1150 ÷ 49 (no. of competitors finishing below 1st place) = 23.47 Point Gap
Step 3: The Point Gap of 23.47 points is deducted in order to calculate the points for each position below 1st place

For example: 1200 Points for 1st place - 23.47 Point Gap = 1176.53 points for 2nd place (1177 points*)
* The final calculated number of points are rounded to the closest number, with .5 values being rounded up to the next number

1st Place = 1200 Points
2nd Place = 1177 Points
3rd Place = 1153 Points
4th Place = 1130 Points
5th Place = 1106 Points
6th Place = 1083 Points
7th Place = 1059 Points
8th Place = 1036 Points
9th Place = 1012 Points
10th Place = 989 Points
11th Place = 965 Points
12th Place = 942 Points
13th Place = 918 Points
14th Place = 895 Points
15th Place = 871 Points
16th Place = 848 Points
17th Place = 824 Points
19th Place = 801 Points
19th Place = 778 Points
20th Place = 754 Points
21st Place = 731 Points
22nd Place = 707 Points
23rd Place = 984 Points
24th Place = 660 Points
25th Place = 637 Points
26th Place = 613 Points
27th Place = 590 Points
28th Place = 566 Points
29th Place = 543 Points
30th Place = 519 Points
31st Place = 496 Points
32nd Place = 472 Points
33rd Place = 449 Points
34th Place = 425 Points
35th Place = 402 Points
36th Place = 379 Points
37th Place = 355 Points
38th Place = 332 Points
39th Place = 308 Points
40th Place = 285 Points
41st Place = 261 Points
42nd Place = 238 Points
43rd Place = 214 Points
44th Place = 191 Points
45th Place = 167 Points
46th Place = 144 Points
47th Place = 120 Points
48th Place = 97 Points
49th Place = 73 Points

Here are the 2018 National Ranking Points (NRPs) that have been recorded for the 2018 season. There have been 2 competitions at this point in time, but please stay tuned, as the results from the competitions for this season will be added and the NRP Leader Board updated on a weekly basis. Results for both river and lake competitions are posted in order to provide some insight on how and where the points were earned (see below for more details).

The average of 3 results are used for calculating a competitor's 2018 NRPs. These results must include 2 of the following: 1 Best Lake Competition Result; 1 Best River Competition Result; or 1 Best River/Lake Competition Result before they can use their 2nd Best Result (see below for more information). A competitor's previous season's NRPs may be used as one of the results if it exceeds their 3 Best Results.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

2018 NATIONAL RANKING POINT LEADER BOARD after 2 sanctioned events (see full list of competitions and results below):



NEW CHANGES to the NRPs for the 2018 SEASON:

LINEAR FORMAT FOR AWARDING NRPs:
The NRP system has been adjusted to allow for a more linear distribution between NRP points earned by competitors at any level of competition. This will favour consistent performers as opposed to competitors who have one strong competition in a season.
For the purposes of calculating the 2018 NRP, the 2017 NRPs have also been changed to a linear format only on the 2018 NRP Leader Board.

BEST 3 RESULTS ARE USED for CALCULATING the 2018 NRPs 
In order to better reflect a competitor's performance, starting in 2018, 3 results will be used for calculating a competitor’s NRP for the year.  A competitor’s results from the current year’s competitions as well as their previous year’s NRP may be used in order to calculate their NRPs.

The results for calculating a competitor's current NRPs consists of the average of 3 results that must include 1 lake competition result and 1 river competition result, and may include 1 of the following result as the 3rd factor (whichever possesses the highest point value): 
a. 2nd Best River Result.
b. 2nd Best Lake Result.
c. Best Mixed River/Lake Result.
d. Previous Season’s NRPs.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

CALCULATING NRPs for the CURRENT YEAR:
Step One:
The highest point value of a competitor's Best Lake Result, Best River Result, or Best Mixed Lake/River Result will be the first factor used for calculating their NRPs.

Step Two:
a) If a competitor’s Best Lake Result is used as the first factor, then their Best River Result or Best Mixed Lake/River Result (whichever is greater) will be used as the second factor used for determining their NRPs.

b) If a competitor’s Best River Result is used as the first factor, then either their Best Lake Result or Best Mixed Lake/River Result (whichever is greater) will be used as the second factor used for determining their NRPs.

c) If a competitor’s Best Mixed Lake/River Result is used as the first factor, then either their Best Lake Result, Best River Result, or their 2nd Best Mixed Lake/River Result (whichever is greater) will be used as the second factor for determining their NRPs.

Step Three:
The third factor that will be used for calculating a competitor’s NRPs will be either their previous year’s NRP or their next greatest current year result (Lake Result, River Result, or Mixed Lake/River Result), whichever is greater.

* Please note that a competitor’s results from three Mixed Lake/River Competitions will be used for calculating their NRPs if those 3 reults are greater than their other results.

CALCULATING NPRs for COMPETITORS WITH LESS THAN 3 RESULTS:
Zero points will be used as one of the factors when calculating the NRPs for competitors with only 2 results.
Zero points will be used as two of the factors when calculating the NRPs for competitors with only 1 result. 

------------------------------------------------------------------

Note: Competition organizers are responsible for submitting FFC Sanctioning Form prior to their event for FFC Sanctioning Approval Number and must confirm that their results are accurate before submitting for inclusion on the NRP Leader Board. Organizers are required to submit the results for their events to Fly Fishing Canada within a period of 7 days of the completion of the event or the results will not be eligible for inclusion for the 2018 NRPs.

The NRP Leader Board will be updated within a 7 day period of any results being submitted and verified for accuracy and compliance by Fly Fishing Canada's NRP and Rule Committee.

Thank-you,
Todd Oishi - President of Fly Fishing Canada

Innovative Fly Fisher Forum's Fly Tying Night will be held in the private dining room at the Home Restaurant in Maple Ridge from 6:00pm - 9:00pm on Tuesday, February 6, 2018. Everyone is welcome to attend our open fly tying nights and join in on a fun and informative night out on the town!

The theme for February's Fly Tying Night will be "Stillwater Patterns"... Fly tyers are free to tie whatever they'd like to tie. I'll leave the floor open to others that are willing to share a few of their favorite pattern(s).

This is a great chance for you to refill the vacant slots in some of your fly boxes, and prepare for next season's recreational angling trips and competitions. It's also a great way to learn a few new tips and meet some other fly tyers in your region, and join in on the conversations/fishing stories from this past season.

The Home Restaurant is a family-oriented restaurant, so youths are welcome. They aren't charging us for the use of their private banquet room for our tying nights, but the deal is that you'll have to order either a meal or appetizer, or a pie and coffee, tea, or pop in order to fill a spot at the table ( I can personally testify that they make the best coffee and pies in town!!! ).

This is truly a fun time with a great group of people/fly tyers. It's also a great way to hone your fly tying skills and learn some new patterns, so please consider coming out to join in on the fun and share a few laughs! Newcomers to the forum and non-members are most welcome at this and all of our events!! :)

Please email Todd Oishi at: toishis@gmail.com or post on this thread if you plan to attend, so I can get an accurate headcount for the seating.

2 concurrents partageront un seul battement de rivière.
Les battements de rivière seront divisés en deux avec un concurrent pêchant 90 minutes sur chaque moitié.
Le milieu du chaque battement sera identifié par un ruban jaune attaché à un arbre ou à un buisson.
Un tirage au sort sera utilisé pour déterminer dans quelle moitié chaque compétiteur commence la session.
Les concurrents effectueront une rotation de moitié à 90 minutes.
Il n'y a pas de réserve de temps pour les demi‐temps de rotation sur les rivières.
2 concurrents partageront 1 contrôleur, sauf si plus de contrôleurs sont disponibles pour permettre 1 contrôleur par concurrent.
Les contrôleurs resteront sur le diviseur du temps intermédiaire pour enregistrer les poissons.
Tous les poissons capturés pendant les sessions de rivière, indépendamment de leur taille, seront marqués comme 25cm.
Vérification du poisson pour les sessions fluviales: Les concurrents doivent ramener suffisamment de poissons filetés à la berge pour permettre au contrôleur d'identifier et de confirmer clairement l'espèce comme une truite, puis relâcher le poisson dans la rivière après que le contrôleur a reconnu la prise. Des precautions doivent être prises pour garder les poissons filetés dans l'eau en tout temps.
Lors de la remise à l'eau du poisson, les concurrents doivent tenir leur mouche / mouche et vider le filet pour vérifier que le poisson a été relâché et effectuer un lancer avant de pouvoir reprendre la pêche.

** Veuillez noter que la date de clôture des inscriptions pour le Championnat canadien de pêche à la mouche de 2018 a été prolongée jusqu'au 28 février 2018.

FLY FISHING CANADA
Effective January 1, 2018, Fly Fishing Canada is introducing a series of adjustments intended to make the National Ranking Point (NRP) system more accurate in representing anglers’ performance at FFC sanctioned competitions and a better tool for the selection of Canadian national teams while at the same time encouraging the growth of competitive fishing across the country.
Key points include:
LINEAR MODEL FOR AWARDING POINTS: The NRP system has been adjusted to allow for a more linear distribution between NRP points earned by competitors at any level of competition.  This will favour consistent performers as opposed to competitors who have one strong competition in a season.
MIXED RIVER/LAKE PERFORMANCE: To better record competitors` mix of river and lake skills, certain competitions that include both river and lake sessions would have an additional NRP value.
CALCULATING NRP FOR THE YEAR: Starting in 2018, three results will be used to calculate a competitor’s NRP for the year.
COMPETITION SESSION REQUIREMENTS: Level 1 to Level 4 competitions minimum session length requirements will be adjusted to 3.0 hrs lake sessions and 2.0 hrs river sessions.
COMPETITIONS HELD ON CONSECUTIVE WEEKENDS: Four-session competitions can be held on two consecutive weekends provided that certain requirements are met.
MAXIMUM NUMBER OF COMPETITION SESSIONS PER DAY: The maximum number of competition sessions per day for any competition level will be limited to 3 sessions.
THE FULL DESCRIPTION OF NRP CHANGES IS ATTACHED TO THIS NOTICE.
Provisions of the FFC National Competition Guide and Ranking Points System that are not affected by the changes remain in force.
 

PÊCHE À LA MOUCHE CANADA 
À compter du 1er janvier 2018, Pêche a la Mouche Canada propose une série d'ajustements visant à rendre le système de pointage national (NRP) plus précis pour représenter la performance des pêcheurs aux compétitions sanctionnées par la FFC et un meilleur outil de sélection des équipes nationales canadiennes. En même temps encourager la croissance de la pêche compétitive à travers le pays. Les points clés comprennent: 
MODÈLE LINÉAIRE POUR LES POINTS D'ATTRIBUTION: Le système NRP a été ajusté pour permettre une distribution plus linéaire entre les points NRP gagnés par les concurrents à n'importe quel niveau de compétition. Cela favorisera les performeurs réguliers par rapport aux concurrents qui ont une forte compétition dans une saison. 
PERFORMANCE MIXTE DE LA RIVIÈRE / LAC: Pour mieux enregistrer la combinaison des compétences fluviales et lacustres des compétiteurs, certaines compétitions incluant des sessions de rivière et de lac auraient une valeur de NRP supplémentaire. 
CALCULER LE PNR POUR L'ANNÉE: À partir de 2018, trois résultats seront utilisés pour calculer le NRP d'un concurrent pour l'année. 
EXIGENCES RELATIVES À LA SÉANCE DE COMPÉTITION: Les compétitions de niveau 1 à 4 exigeront la durée minimale de la session, qui sera de 3,0 heures pour les séances sur les lacs et de 2,0 heures pour les sessions sur les rivières. 
COMPÉTITIONS TENUES SUR DES FINS DE SEMAINE CONSÉCUTIVES: Des compétitions de quatre sessions peuvent être tenues sur deux fins de semaine consécutives pourvu que certaines conditions soient remplies.
NOMBRE MAXIMUM DE SÉANCES DE COMPETITION PAR JOUR: Le nombre maximum de sessions de compétition par jour pour tout niveau de compétition sera limité à 3 sessions. 
LA DESCRIPTION COMPLÈTE DES CHANGEMENTS DU PNR EST JOINTE À CET AVIS.
Les dispositions du Guide national des compétitions de la FFC et du Système des points de classement qui ne sont pas affectés par les changements restent en vigueur.

-------

Effective January 1, 2018, Fly Fishing Canada is introducing the following adjustments intended to make the National Ranking Point (NRP) system more accurate in representing anglers’ performance at FFC sanctioned competitions and a better tool for the selection of Canadian national teams while at the same time encouraging the growth of competitive fishing across the country:
LINEAR MODEL FOR AWARDING POINTS

The NRP system will be adjusted to allow for a more linear distribution between NRP points earned by competitors at any level of competition.  This will favour consistent performers as opposed to competitors who have one strong competition in a season.

The proposed model allocates points linearly across all competitors within a single competition. In all competitions, the last place competitor receives 25 points. The formula for calculating the Linear Spread (LS) is as follows:

P = competition points
A = # anglers.
LS= {(P-25) / (A-1)}

For example; Consider a Canadian Nationals event with 50 anglers.

 P = 750
 A = 50

Hence, the Linear Spread LS = {(750-25)/ (50-1)} = 14.796 rounded to 15.
 
Applying the new system will require a readjustment of the maximum points earned for each level of FFC competitions as follows:
•   Level 1: 750 pts / minimum of 30 participants / 5 sessions (Canadian National Championship)

•   Level 2: 700 pts / minimum of 30 participants / 5 sessions (other championships)

•   Level 3: 650 pts / minimum of 20 participants / 4 sessions (2 day competitions)

•   Level 4: up to 600 pts / minimum of 16 participants / 4 sessions / average of 5 top NRPs (2 day competitions)

Minimum point value for a Level 4 competition = 300 (1/2 the max value)
 
•    Level 5: up to 550 pts / minimum of 8 participants / 2 sessions / average of 5 top NRPs (minis)

Minimum point value for a Level 5 competition = 275 (1/2 the max value)
* An additional bonus of 10 points will be awarded for mixed river&lake competitions (minimum of 2 river sessions and 2 lake sessions) at Competition Levels 1,2,3 and 4.
 
The chart below demonstrates how the linear distribution system would work taking using the minimum required level of competitors for each level:



Note: this example shows decimals, but for convenience the numbers can be rounded when applied in practice.
The charts below compare the Old NRP System to the New NRP System using a 750 point scale with 35 anglers. It's very easy to see the difference in how a linear model allocates points vs the non-linear model.
 




REFLECTING MIXED RIVER/LAKE PERFORMANCE   
Reflecting the fact that international competitions require a solid mix of river and lake skills, certain competitions that include both river and lake sessions would have a value of an additional 10 NRP.  This will apply to mixed river and lake competitions at levels 1,2,3 and 4 as follows:

Levels 1 and 2: competitions that have a) 3 lake and 2 river sessions or b) 2 lake and 3 river sessions
Levels 3 and 4: competitions that have 2 lake and 2 river sessions
CALCULATING NRP FOR THE YEAR 
To better reflect performance, starting in 2018, 3 results will be used in order to calculate a competitor’s NRP for the year.  A competitor’s results from the current year’s competitions as well as their previous year’s NRP may be used in order to calculate their NRPs.
 The results used may include: 
a.   Best River Result.
b.   Best Lake Result.
c.   Best Mixed River/Lake Result
d.   Best Mixed River/Lake Result
e.    Previous Season’s NRPs.
The highest point value from a competitor’s best lake, best river, or best mixed (river & lake) competition will be the first factor used for determining their NRPs. If a competitor’s results from their best lake competition is used as the first factor, then their best river or mixed competition result (whichever is greater) will be used as the second factor used for determining their NRPs.
If a competitor’s results from their best river competition is used as the first factor, then either their best lake or mixed competition result (whichever is greater) will be used as the second factor used for determining their NRPs.
If a competitor’s results from their best mixed competition is used as the first factor, then either their best lake, best river, or second best mixed comp result (whichever is greater) will be used as the second factor for determining their NRPs.
The third factor that will be used for calculating a competitor’s NRPs will be either their previous year’s NRP or their next greatest current year result (lake, river, or mixed competition), whichever is higher.
Three of a competitor’s results from three Mixed Lake/River Competitions will be used for calculating their NRP if they are greater than their other results.
Zero points will be used as one of the factors when calculating the NRPs for competitors with only 2 results.
 Zero points will be used as two of the factors when calculating the NRPs for competitors with only 1 result. 
For the purposes of calculating the 2018 NRP, the 2017 NRP's will be scaled upward and renamed "2017 transitional NRP points". The 2017 NRP ranking order will be taken and used to consider what NRP points would be available under the new system if a mock Nationals was run with competitors finishing in the exact order as the 2017 NRP ranking list.
The "2017 transitional NRP points" will be also used for calculating the point value of Level 5 competitions (minis): as in the previous system the value will be calculated as the average of the NRPs of the top five participating competitors up to a maximum value of 550 points. The minimum value will be half of the maximum: 275.
COMPETITION SESSION REQUIREMENTS:
Level 1 to Level 4 competitions minimum session length requirements will be adjusted to 3.0 hrs lake sessions and 2.0 hrs river sessions.
Level 5 (mini) competitions will remain unchanged = 3.0 hrs Lake session and 1.5 hrs river sessions.
COMPETITIONS HELD ON CONSECUTIVE WEEKENDS:
Four-session competitions (Levels 4 and 3) can be held on two consecutive weekends provided that the following requirements are met:
-   The required minimum number of competitors remain the same persons over the two weekends (no substitutions allowed);
-   The same venues are fished by all competitors over the same weekend (for example: sector 1 and 2 fished on the first weekend, sector 3 and 4 on the second)       
This approach is intended to encourage more higher level competitions to be held as opposed to one day minis, as well as to make it possible to hold mixed river and lake competitions where the venues are far from each other and would make a one-weekend competition logistically difficult. 
MAXIMUM NUMBER OF COMPETITION SESSIONS PER DAY:
The maximum number of competition sessions per day for any competition level will be limited to 3 sessions.
LEVEL 5 COMPETITION REQUIREMENTS (MINIs):
The minimum number of required competitors for this l level will be increased from 6 to 8 participants in established regions (British Columbia, Ontario, Quebec and North Central Alberta).
The minimum at 6 participants for minis will remain for the rest of the country for a 2 year grace period to allow for growth.
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
À compter du 1er janvier 2018, Pêche à la Mouche Canada apportera les ajustements suivants afin que le système du Point de classement national (NRP) soit plus précis pour représenter la performance des pêcheurs aux compétitions sanctionnées par la FFC et un meilleur outil pour la sélection des équipes nationales canadiennes. en même temps encourager la croissance de la pêche compétitive à travers le pays:

Modèle linéaire pour l'attribution de points
Le système NRP sera ajusté pour permettre une distribution plus linéaire entre les points NRP gagnés par les concurrents à n'importe quel niveau de compétition. Cela favorisera les performeurs réguliers par opposition aux concurrents qui ont une forte compétition dans une saison.

Le modèle proposé attribue des points linéairement à tous les concurrents au sein d'une même compétition. Dans toutes les compétitions, la dernière place reçoit 25 points. La formule pour calculer la propagation linéaire (LS) est la suivante:

P = points competition
A = # Pêcheurs.
LS= {(P-25) / (A-1)}

Par exemple; Considérez un événement des Championnats canadiens avec 50 pêcheurs.

 P = 750
 A = 50

Par consequent, la propagation linéaire: LS = {(750-25)/ (50-1)} = 14.796 arrondi a 15.

L'application du nouveau système exigera un réajustement du nombre maximum de points gagnés pour chaque niveau de compétitions FFC comme suit: 

•    Niveau 1: 750 pts / minimum de 30 participants / 5 sessions (Championats Nationale)

•   Niveau 2: 700 pts / minimum de 30 participants / 5 sessions (autre championats)

•   Niveau 3: 650 pts / minimum de 20 participants / 4 sessions (2 jour competitions)

•   Niveau 4: jusque a 600 pts / minimum de 16 participants / 4 sessions / moyennes des 5 premiers NRPs (2 jour competitions)

Valeurs minimal du point pour un concours de niveau 4 = 300 (1/2 le max valuer)
 
•    Niveau 5: jusque a 550 pts / minimum de 8 participants / 2 sessions / moyennes des 5 premiers NRPs (minis)

Valeur minimale du point pour une compétition de niveau 5 = 275 (1/2 the max value)
* Un bonus supplémentaire de 10 points sera accordé pour les compétitions mixtes rivière et lac (minimum de 2 sessions de rivière) aux niveaux de compétition 1,2,3 et 4.
 
Le tableau ci-dessous montre comment fonctionnerait le système de distribution linéaire en utilisant le niveau minimum requis de concurrents pour chaque niveau:



Remarque: cet exemple montre des décimales, mais par commodité, les nombres peuvent être arrondis lorsqu'ils sont appliqués en pratique.

Les tableaux ci-dessous comparent l'ancien système NRP au nouveau système NRP en utilisant une échelle de points de 750 avec 35 pêcheurs. Il est très facile de voir la différence dans la façon dont un modèle linéaire alloue des points par rapport au modèle non linéaire.
 



 
RÉFLÉCHIR LA PERFORMANCE MIXTE DE LA RIVIÈRE / LAC
Reflétant le fait que les compétitions internationales exigent une bonne combinaison de compétences fluviales et lacustres, certaines compétitions qui incluent des sessions de rivière et de lac auraient une valeur de 10 PNR supplémentaires. Ceci s'appliquera aux compétitions mixtes de rivière et de lac aux niveaux 1, 2, 3 et 4 comme suit:

Niveaux 1 et 2: compétitions qui ont) 3 sessions de lac et 2 sessions de rivière ou b) 2 sessions de lac et 3 sessions de rivière
Niveaux 3 et 4: compétitions qui ont 2 sessions de lac et 2 sessions de rivière
Calculer le PNR pour l'année prochaine
Pour mieux refléter la performance, à partir de 2018, 3 résultats seront utilisés pour calculer le PNR d'un concurrent pour l'année. Les résultats d'un compétiteur des compétitions de l'année en cours ainsi que le NRP de l'année précédente peuvent être utilisés pour calculer leurs NRP.

 Les résultats utilisés peuvent inclure:
Meilleur résultat de la rivière.
Meilleur résultat de lac.
Meilleur Résultat mixte rivière / lac
Meilleur Résultat mixte rivière / lac
NRP de la saison précédente.

La valeur maximale du meilleur lac d'un concurrent, de la meilleure rivière ou de la meilleure compétition mixte (rivière et lac) sera le premier facteur utilisé pour déterminer ses NRP. Si les résultats d'un concurrent provenant de sa meilleure compétition lacustre sont utilisés comme premier facteur, alors son meilleur résultat de compétition fluviale ou mixte (le plus élevé des deux) sera utilisé comme deuxième facteur utilisé pour déterminer ses NRP.

Si les résultats d'un compétiteur de sa meilleure compétition fluviale sont utilisés comme premier facteur, alors son meilleur résultat de lac ou de compétition mixte (le plus élevé des deux) sera utilisé comme deuxième facteur utilisé pour déterminer son NRP.

Si les résultats d'un compétiteur issus de sa meilleure compétition mixte sont utilisés comme premier facteur, alors son meilleur résultat de lac, sa meilleure rivière ou son deuxième meilleur résultat mixte (le plus élevé des deux) sera utilisé comme deuxième facteur pour déterminer leur NRP.

Le troisième facteur qui sera utilisé pour calculer les NRP d'un concurrent sera le  NRP de son année précédente ou son plus grand résultat de l'année en cours (lac, rivière ou mixte), selon le plus élevé des deux.
Trois des résultats d'un compétiteur de trois compétitions mixtes lac / rivière seront utilisés pour calculer leur NRP s'ils sont supérieurs à leurs autres résultats.
Les points zéro seront utilisés comme l'un des facteurs lors du calcul des NRP pour les concurrents avec seulement 2 résultats.
Les points zéro seront utilisés comme deux des facteurs lors du calcul des NRP pour les concurrents ayant un seul résultat.
Aux fins du calcul du NRP de 2018, les NRP de 2017 seront revus à la hausse et renommés «Points de NRP de transition 2017». L'ordre de classement du NRP 2017 sera pris et utilisé pour considérer quels points NRP seraient disponibles sous le nouveau système si un simulacres de Championnats nationaux était organisé avec des concurrents finissant dans l'ordre exact de la liste de classement du NRP de 2017.
Les «points NRP transitoires 2017» seront également utilisés pour calculer la valeur en points des compétitions de niveau 5 (minis): comme dans le système précédent, la valeur sera calculée comme la moyenne des NRP des cinq meilleurs concurrents participants jusqu'à un maximum valeur de 550 points. La valeur minimale sera la moitié du maximum: 275.

EXIGENCES DE LA SÉANCE DE CONCOURS:
Les compétitions de niveau 1 à 4 exigeront la durée minimale de la session de 3 heures et de 2 heures.Les compétitions de niveau 5 (mini) resteront inchangées = 3,0 heures de séance sur le lac et 1,5 heure sur les rivières.

CONCOURS SUR LES WEEK-END CONSÉCUTIFS:
Les compétitions à quatre sessions (niveaux 4 et 3) peuvent avoir lieu deux week-ends consécutifs à condition que les conditions suivantes soient remplies:
Le nombre minimum requis de concurrents reste les mêmes personnes pendant les deux week-ends (aucune substitution n'est permise);
Les mêmes sites sont pêchés par tous les concurrents le même week-end (par exemple: les secteurs 1 et 2 ont pêché le premier week-end, les secteurs 3 et 4 le deuxième)
Cette approche vise à encourager la tenue de compétitions de plus haut niveau par opposition aux minis d'une journée, ainsi que la possibilité de tenir des compétitions mixtes de rivières et de lacs où les sites sont éloignés les uns des autres et de faire une compétition d'un week-end logistiquement difficile.

NOMBRE MAXIMUM DE SÉANCES DE CONCOURS PAR JOUR:
Le nombre maximum de sessions de compétition par jour pour tout niveau de compétition sera limité à 3 sessions.

EXIGENCES DE COMPÉTITION DE NIVEAU 5 (MINI):Le nombre minimum de compétiteurs requis pour ce niveau sera augmenté de 6 à 8 participants dans les régions établies (Colombie-Britannique, Ontario, Québec et Centre-Nord de l'Alberta).
Le minimum à 6 participants pour les minis restera pour le reste du pays pour une période de grâce de 2 ans pour permettre la croissance.
