British Columbia Competitive Fly Fishing League's 2017 Season Finale and Awards Ceremony

Date: IMPORTANT UPDATE!

Please note that due to the Grey Cup Game; scheduling issues; and venue bookings problems... the date for this event will changed to the first available Sunday in early January .

Please stay tuned for the date for this event, which will be posted as soon as the venue can be confirmed and secured.


Location: The Ranch Pub & Grill at the Maple Ridge Equestrian Center at 21973 132nd Avenue, Maple Ridge, B.C. 604-467-5616
Time: 1:00pm – 3:00pm
Cost: $15.00 per adult (meal and 1 drink included)

This is an open invitation to all forum members, spouses, friends, family, league members and non-league members. It would be great to have as many of you as possible at this event! So consider this as your invitation to come out to support the youth team members and celebrate the end of the 2017 season, and recognize the accomplishments of the competitors/members of the British Columbia Competitive Fly Fishing League.

This year has been a great season with many fantastic competitions (and some very challenging ones as well). This season there has been a total of 8 competitions held within British Columbia (4 rivers and 4 stillwaters), with an total of 60 competitors competing at these competitions and championships.

The results from those competitions have been recorded on the British Columbia Competitive Fly Fishing Leader Board, but with only the Mill Lake competition remaining (November 5th) before the 2017 season comes to an end, so it’s anyone’s guess as to who will rise to the top in the standings and categories. Medals and trophies will be presented for both the adult and youth categories at the season finale and awards ceremony on Sunday, November 26, 2017.

Here are the categories for this year's awards:

Overall Categories:
• River Champion (highest points earned at river competitions)
• Stillwater Champion (highest points earned at stillwater competitions)
• Largest Catch - Stillwaters (based on the number of fish scored)
• Largest Catch - Rivers (based on the number of fish scored)
• Most Sportsmanlike
• Service Award - Special Presentation

Adult Categories:
• Competitor of the Year (overall champion on the Leader Board)
• Top 3 Adult Competitive Fly Fishers for British Columbia (over 18 years old)
• Female Competitor of the Year
• Rookie of the Year
• Most Improved Competitor (Rivers and Lakes Combined)

Youth Categories:
• Competitor of the Year (overall champion on the Youth Leader Board)
• Top 3 Youth Competitive Fly Fishers for British Columbia (12 – 18 years old)
• Rookie of the Year (Youth) 
• Most Improved Competitor (Youth)
 

Spouses, children and parents, as well as non-league members are invited and most welcome to attend this event. This will provide a great opportunity for your parents, spouses, and children to meet the parents, spouses, and children of your fellow league members and share in some stories of the good times, memories, and friendships that we’ve built over this past season. It’ll also allow them to share the experience and perhaps better understand why we’re so willing to brave the elements, and better understand why we're so passionate (and obsessed) about this great sport!

Please post a reply on this thread or email Todd Oishi at: info@innovativeflyfisher.com in order to register for this event (I need an accurate head-count for the booking).

The 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, November 7, 2017. 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 November's Fly Tying Night will be "Perdigon Nymphs for Winter Trout and Whitefish...I'll do a brief tying demonstration, and will be tying some perdigon style nymphs (Spanish nymphs) for those who are interested in peeking over my shoulder. 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.

Revised CALL TO ARMS, 10th October, 2017
(The purpose of this revision is to allow more time for members to get their applications in, especially those that were inadvertently missed from the original call. The extension will have the added benefit of allowing the selectors to see the results of the 2017 NRP calculations.
(Members that have already applied do not need to apply again)

Fly Fishing Canada is seeking applicants for positions on our National Teams that will be participating in the following international championships:
 
38th FIPS-Mouche World Fly Fishing Championship and Conservation Symposium, to be held in Italy from 17 to 23 September 2018 in Comano Terme, Trentino, Italy.
 
2018 Commonwealth Fly Fishing Championship, to be held in Northern Ireland from the 2nd of September until the 8th of September. FFC intends to send two teams, as we have in the past. One team will be the gold medal team from the Commonwealth in Mont Tremblant in 2016. Members of this team have all agreed to go and do not need to apply. Sorin Comsa is exempt as he was the individual silver medalist and has also agreed to be on the second team. This means five positions are still open to applicants.
 
To be eligible to apply for these teams, you must have competed in a FFC National Championship and Conservation Symposium. Team selections will be made by a selection committee made up of members of your Board of Directors plus 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 the alternate (who’s role will be made clear at the time of their acceptance of that position on the team). The selection committee will also appoint the team captain once the team has been confirmed.
 
The process of selecting the teams will be based mainly on three years of NRP rankings starting with 2017 and working back.
 
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.
 
If you would like to apply for the teams, contact Todd Oishi at toishis@gmail.com
Application deadline is November 15th, 2017 and teams will be announced on Friday 15th December.
The Board has decided that in the future teams will be selected sufficiently in advance to allow for pre-fishing of the venues and time for effective fund raising.

AVIS AUX INTÉRESSÉS (2ÈME CHANCE), 10 octobre 2017
 (Le but de cette deuxième chance est de donner plus de temps aux membres pour soumettre leurs inscriptions, plus particulièrement ceux qui ont manqué l’appel initial par inadvertance. De plus, ceci donnera la chance au comité de sélection de voir les résultats des calculs des points de classement national (PCN) de 2017. Les membres qui ont déjà posé leur candidature n’ont pas besoin de postuler à nouveau)

Fly Fishing Canada (Pêche à la mouche Canada) est à la recherche de candidats pour se joindre aux équipes nationales qui participeront aux championnats internationaux suivants :
 
Le 38e Championnat du monde de pêche à la mouche et colloque sur la conservation qui se tiendra en Italie du 17 au 23 septembre 2018 à Comano Terme dans la province de Trentin en Italie.
 
Commonwealth Fly Fishing Championship de 2018 qui se tiendra en Irlande du Nord du 2 au 8 septembre. Fly Fishing Canada a l’intention d’envoyer deux équipes comme par le passé. L’une des équipes sera l’équipe médaillée d’or au Commonwealth à Mont-Tremblant en 2016. Les membres de cette équipe ont tous accepté et n’ont dans aucun cas, besoin de postuler. À noter que Sorin Comsa est exempté puisqu’il est médaillé d’argent en simple et a également accepté de faire partie de la deuxième équipe. Cela signifie donc que cinq postes sont toujours ouverts.
Pour être admissible, vous devez avoir participé à un championnat national et un colloque de conservation de la FFC. La sélection des candidats sera faite par un comité composé de membres de votre conseil d’administration et de deux anciens capitaines de compétitions internationales qui ne sont pas membres du conseil d’administration. Le comité de sélection votera pour cinq compétiteurs par équipe ainsi qu’un remplaçant (dont le rôle sera précisé au moment de l’acceptation de cette position au sein de l’équipe). Le comité de sélection désignera également le capitaine de l’équipe une fois celle-ci formée.
Le processus de sélection des équipes est basé principalement sur le classement reposant sur les PCN des trois années antérieures à partir de 2017.


Autres facteurs décisifs, les personnes choisies devront aussi :
– Être un joueur d’équipe
– Détenir un ensemble de compétences spécifiques à certains sites
– Être un excellent ambassadeur du Canada et de la FFC lors d’événements internationaux
 
Si vous souhaitez postuler, contactez Todd Oishi au toishis@gmail.com
La date limite d’inscription est le 15 novembre 2017 et les équipes seront annoncées le vendredi 15 décembre.
Le Conseil a décidé qu’à l’avenir, les équipes allaient être sélectionnées suffisamment à l’avance pour permettre la pêche préalable des sites ainsi que d’avoir le temps nécessaire pour effectuer une collecte de fonds efficace.
Donald Thom
Président des équipes nationales du FFC

We also need to know which of the participants can supply a boats and electric motors for this event and the name of their team mate. Individuals will be paired up to form a team.

This event will be the final competition of the season for the British Columbia Competitive Fly Fishing League's 2017 season. Please email Todd Oishi at: info@innovativeflyfisher.com in order to register for this competition.

We really want to encourage newcomers and fly fishers of all skill levels to come out to this fun and social event, and see what this competition and our group is all about. No need to worry if you've never fished loch-style, as it's basically fishing from a drifting boat and keeping your flies ahead of the boat while casting and retrieving your fly. It's going to be a fun and challenging event, so don't delay and sign-up today! :)

                     The Theme: Fly Patterns for Coho

The 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, October 3, 2017. 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 October's Fly Tying Night will be "Fly Patterns for Coho". I'll do a brief tying demonstration, and will be tying a few of my favorite patterns for those who are interested in peeking over my shoulder. 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!

Please post on this thread or email me if you plan to attend, so I can get an accurate headcount for the seating.

CALL TO ARMS!

Fly Fishing Canada is seeking applicants to apply for positions on two of our National Teams that will be participating in the following international championships:
 
38th FIPS-Mouche World Fly Fishing Championship and Conservation Symposium, to be held in Italy from 17 to 23 September 2018 in Comano Terme, Trentino, Italy.
 
2018 Commonwealth Fly Fishing Championship, to be held from the 2nd of September until the 8th of September (See application details below).
 
To be eligible to apply for either of these teams, you must have competed in a FFC National Championship and Conservation Symposium. Team selections will be made by the FFC’s Board of Directors and two past captains of international competitions. The selection committee will vote to select 5 competitors per team plus the alternate (who’s role will be made clear at the time of their acceptance of that position on the team). The selection committee will also appoint the team captain once the team has been confirmed.
 
The process of selecting the teams will be mainly based on three years of NRP rankings starting with 2016 and working back.  The 2017 results will only be used if the selection committee requires additional information before making their decision.
 
Other deciding factors in the team selections will include;
- a "team first" mentality
- a specific skill sets suited to certain venues
- a great ambassador for Canada and FFC at international events.

A spot has been opened for one more team at the 2017 North American Loch-Style Fly Fishing Championships. This event is sanctioned by Fly Fishing Canada as a Level 1.1 competition with 750 National Ranking Points up for grabs, and is sanctioned by Fly Fishing Team USA for their national ranking point system.

This year's championship will see 5 international teams in attendance, which makes this the most challenging fly fishing championship to be held in North American soil for 2017! It will also be a great learning experience for all that attend.
