Notice:  The Maple Ridge Fly Tying Nights have officially come to an end due to poor attendance, as we need to have a minimum number of participants in order to reserve the room at the Home Restaurant.

Thank-you to all of the fly tyers that have come out for the fly tying nights over the years. I will miss the laughs and great time spent with all of you!

Cheers,
Todd

On Saturday, June 15th the Freshwater Society of British Columbia is having their open house at the Fraser Valley Trout Hatchery in Abbotsford, and are looking for people to volunteer to help out down at their Fishing Ponds were they will have kids fishing. 

The tasks will likely involve netting fish, unhooking fish, untangling rods, that kind of stuff, and hopefully getting some kids into fishing!

Please contact the Freshwater Society of British Columbia at:    Visit.FraserValley@gofishbc.com     to volunteer or for more information.

Thanks,
Todd Oishi

Update for May 17, 2019:
Please note that in an announcement this morning, the Squirmy Worm has now been officially banned by FIPS-Mouche. As a result of this new rule, effective immediately, the Squirmy Wormy is now officially banned by Fly Fishing Canada and is considered as an illegal fly for all Fly Fishing Canada sanctioned competitions and championships.

Article 29.10. Appendages that alter the original concept of an artificial fly or bodies made of moulded/shaped plastic, moulded/shaped silicone or moulded/shaped rubber are banned (moulded/shaped imitations of worms, eggs, baitfish, maggots, twisters…). Rubber or extruded round material, exceeding the bend, shank or eye of the hook is not allowed with exception of maximal diameter 0,53 mm used for leg imitations (diameter shall be checked with measuring gauge unstretched).

Rivers and Stream Fly Fishing / Bucket List Rivers...
« on: May 14, 2019, 09:29:03 AM »
I'm just curious as to which rivers you guys and gals are hoping to scratch off your bucket list this year?

I'd love to return to explore and fish a few more of the rivers and streams in the Rockies of Colorado, or wander the banks of the Madison and Yellowstone River in Montana, but unfortunately both of those dreams destinations will most likely have to wait until next year...

How about the  rest of you? What rivers on on this year's list and/or where do you wish that you could go...

A very interesting and insightful article on Team Success, shared by Karel Krivanec of the Czech Republic National Fly Fishing Team:


Games with frontiers (Trout Fisherman 522, p.86, April – May 2019)

Iain Barr wrote a comprehensive piece in TF 520, outlining England‘s new selection process and the Elite Performance Programme. He beoans the inexperience of some of our leading anglers at World and European level and goes to some lenght about the lenght of the selection process for those teams and the costs involved. But he misses one vital point when analysing why England teams do relatively poorly against anglers from outside the UK.

Let's assume, as an example, that the World Championship is being held in Italy. If the French anglers want to get experience of fishing the rivers involved, they can leave work at Friday lunchtime and be on that river by dinner-time. They can fish hard for two days and then be home on Sunday night, in good time for work the next day.

If a couple of England anglers want to do the same they have to book flights, hire a car, book an hotel, arrange the fishing, travell all day Friday, fish for two days and travel home on Monday. The costs alone become exorbitant.

What I would like to know is how our World Team fares compared to the other European teams when the competition is in New Zealand , Australia or Canada, venues that are a lot further away and where all European teams have to operate on a more level playing field.

Bob Preston, Marlborough, Whiltshire
Editor replies: We touched on your latter point in late 2016.(TF 490).England lagged markedly behind Continental "powerhouse" nations in those World Championships fished neither on home soil nor in contiguous countries. England had achieved 57 per cent of its medal success in such conditions: eight percentage points behind Italy , the next-poorest long distance travellers, and well behind the leaders in the category - France (93 per cent) and Belgium (80 per cent).

Karel wonders:
When I read the editor’s reply in 2016, I didn't understand what the author wanted to say, but I let it go. When I read it today as a response to another reader I was surprised again. I think the editor should not comment on what he does not understand. How did he get to those percentages? How Belgium got to his statement with the number of medals, which ranked eighth place in the historical table. Such a prestigious magazine should pay attention to what corresponds to the readers. However, one thing the editor did very good when he added a photo from the World Championship in Poland (2010) to the article. In addition to the bronze John Horsey stands two insignificant Czechs.

With all of the interior lakes open, I have been prepping my lake boxes and cleaning my fly lines. While sorting my fly boxes and relining my flies into their proper positions in the fly boxes, I realized just how much I have been missing my time spent casting to trout in the interior lakes.

I'm not sure how the rest of you sort your fly boxes, but I tend to keep them in boxes that are specific to certain techniques and presentations. The box that gets me most excited is my  "small stuff" boxes that are lined with the smallest of larvae patterns to fairly large emerger patterns.

I do love fishing dries as much as anyone, but I suppose that it is the technical aspect that's involved with the presentation and fishing the small stuff, in comparison to pulling or "ripping & stripping" blobs, boobies, and other lures, because for me, I get my greatest joy by experiencing the take using my sense of touch (my hands) rather than visually observing the take...

So how about the rest of you? What's your preferred method of fishing or technique for stillwaters, and what gives you the most satisfaction and your greatest joy at the end of the day??

May 10, 2019 Update for all Youth Team Members:

REGIONAL COMPETITIONS:
There are several competitions happening this season that I though some of you might be interested in  attending. The coaching staff will be on hand at all of the competitions and helping you through the preparations and process. Here’s a list of the competitions that aren’t sold-out yet:

1.   The Glimpse Lake Loch-Style Fly Fishing Competition takes place on Saturday, June 8th near Merritt. This competition will be fished from drifting boats, in the same style of fishing that you used when you fished Mike and Rolley Lake during nationals, but with electric motors. Quite a few of the competitors will be camping at the lake or staying in hotels in the town of Merritt. Please let me know if you’re interested in participating at this event, as I will need to arrange a few loaner boats for those that wish to participate at this event, but don’t have a boat.
2.   There is a river competition on Sunday, August 25th that is being held in Chilliwack on the Chilliwack River (the upper section of the Vedder River). This river has a good  mix of rainbow trout and whitefish, with a greater percentage of rainbows being caught than whitefish. Dry flies and nymphs will be the ticket for success at this event!
3.   The Mill Lake Loch-Style Fly Fishing Competition takes place on Sunday, November 3rd. This lake is situated in the town of Abbotsford and is always a fun and productive competition, as it is a fairly small lake that is heavily stocked with rainbow trout.

Here is a link to the Event Schedule where you’ll find links to the competitions and more information about these competitions: http://innovativeflyfisher.com/forum/index.php?topic=3425.msg26591#msg26591 

CANADIAN NATIONAL FLY FISHING CHAMPIONSHIP:
I would also like to know if any of you are interested in competing as a member of the Canadian Youth Fly Fishing Team at the Canadian National Fly Fishing Championship that is being held in Kenauk, Quebec on October 22 – 27, 2019. Here’s a link to that event:  http://innovativeflyfisher.com/forum/index.php?topic=3402.msg26414#msg26414

This championship is our nation’s premier event, with both adult and youth competitors from across Canada competing at this annual championship. Competitors fish on 5 person teams at this event. Please let me know if you are interested in participating at this event, or if you have any questions.

YOUTH WORLD FLY FISHING CHAMPIONSHIP:
The 2020 Youth World Fly Fishing Championships are being held in Bosnia & Herzegovina in July/August next summer (date to be finalized). Fly Fishing Canada would like to send our Youth National Fly Fishing Team to represent Canada at this international championship! We will be accepting applications for this event during the fall, with selections being made by the coaching staff of the Youth Fly Fishing Team.

Applicants will be selected for the National Team for the Youth World Championship based on whether they exhibit a “team first” mentality; their knowledge and skill set is suited to the competition venues (both lakes and rivers); and if they would make a great ambassador for Canada at this international event.

FLY FISHING CLINICS:
We will be running some clinics in the Lower Mainland in the fall, and are in the process of organizing up some clinics and competitions for Vancouver Island. The dates for these events will be announced as soon as we’ve finalized the details and arranged the coaches for these events.

Please stay tuned for more information and updates!

Best regards,
Todd Oishi

• 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.

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

About the British Columbia Fly Fishing 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 10th, 2019 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 Sunday, November 17, 2019.

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 allows 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:

                 (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
18th Place = 801 Points
19th Place = 778 Points
20th Place = 754 Points
21st Place = 731 Points
22nd Place = 707 Points
23rd Place = 684 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

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 7, 2019. 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 April's Fly Tying Night will be "Epic 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 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.

Here is the updated 2019 Leader Board for the British Columbia Fly Fishing League, which is based on a total of 3 competitions with 29 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, 2019 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 2019.

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.
• 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 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):

Position      1 Day Comp    2 Day Comp     3 Day Comp
1st place=     600 points       900 points       1200 points

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

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

15th Place = 871 Points
16th Place = 848 Points
17th Place = 824 Points
18th Place = 801 Points
19th Place = 778 Points
20th Place = 754 Points
21st Place = 731 Points
22nd Place = 707 Points
23rd Place = 684 Points
24th Place = 660 Points
25th Place = 637 Points
26th Place = 613 Points
27th Place = 590 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
