Fly Fishing Canada News / FFC Membership for 2019
« on: February 12, 2019, 09:08:35 AM »

FFC Membership for 2019

Annual Memberships for Fly Fishing Canada (FFC) are currently on sale, for those wishing to be a part of a growing organization. Join the ranks of those enjoying competitive fly fishing and representing Canada within the global Fly Fishing Community!

Member privileges shall include:
• Option to be listed on the National Ranking Points (NRPs) Leader Board,
• Active members will not be required to pay the $5 event sanctioning fee (individual
event fees charged by the league organizers still apply),
• Voting rights at the AGM,
• Option to hold a Director's position on the Fly fishing Canada Board,
• Consideration for International Team Selection,
• Newsletters,
• Access to Special Information (including information write-ups by Team Canada members) and Rewards through the FFC website, currently being revamped throughout 2019,
• Plus more...

Changes for 2019 and beyond:
This year we have introduced a few changes to our Membership model. FFC will be transitioning towards collecting membership fees at the beginning of the year as opposed to the end of the season. Our reason for doing this is simple. We need to collect the organizations revenue in advance of when our expenses primarily come due. The majority of the organizations expenses such as FIPs (International Fly Fishing Federation), CIPs (International Sport Fishing Confederation) and web site fees are charged in the beginning of the year.

Therefore, in 2020 and beyond, all membership fees will be due by Feb 28th of the Calendar year and NRP points will not be carried forward for those anglers missing the deadline. If a membership fee is paid after the deadline, the anglers NRP points will be retroactively recorded for the current year. Anglers with extraordinary circumstances may petition the board in writing for approval to request a later payment date.

Acknowledging that 2019 is a year of transition, FFC will provide its membership some additional flexibility for this year only. We will extend the membership fee collection period to May 31, 2019. NRP points will not be carried forward for those anglers missing the deadline. If a membership fee is paid after the deadline, the anglers NRP points will be retroactively recorded for the current year. Anglers with extraordinary circumstances may petition the board in writing for approval to request an alternative payment date.

FFC will be instituting a $5 event sanctioning fee for all non-members participating in sanctioned FFC events. This fee will be charged at the same time event organizers collect fees for the event itself and submitted to FFC. Active members of FFC will not be charged. This fee is included in your membership benefits. Non-member fees paid by an angler will not accrue towards a subsequent membership purchase. Therefore, competitors are encouraged to buy your 2019 FFC membership before your competitive season begins. This is particularly important for those anglers in B.C. whose competition season typically begins in early March.

Those who purchase a membership card and who are not currently on the NRP Leader Board will have their results from the 2019 season added to it. Those who are currently on the NRP Leader Board, in paying their Membership fee will continue to have their name and results listed on the Leader Board.

To reiterate;
Competitors failing to purchase a membership card by May 31, 2019 will lose their accumulated NRPs and have to start over at zero points (if signing up after that date).

Fly Fishing Canada Membership cards are going on sale February 1, 2019.

The Membership Fee is $45 for adults and $25 for Youths (Youths being defined as any person who is 18 years of age or under during the membership year).

FFC will accept registration payment via e-transfer starting on February 1, 2019.

Adhésion à la FFC pour 2019

Les abonnements annuels de Fly Fishing Canada (FFC) sont actuellement en vente, pour ceux qui souhaitent faire partie d'une organisation en pleine croissance. Joignez-vous aux rangs de ceux qui pratiquent la pêche à la mouche et représentent le Canada au sein de la communauté mondiale de la pêche à la mouche!

Les privilèges des membres incluent:
• L’option d’être inscrite sur le tableau des leaders des points de classement nationaux,
• Les membres actifs ne seront pas tenus de payer les frais de sanction de l’événement de 5 $
les frais d’événement facturés par les organisateurs de la ligue restent applicables)
• Droits de vote à l’AGA,
• Possibilité d’occuper un poste d’administrateur au sein du Conseil canadien de pêche à la mouche,
• Considération pour la sélection d’équipes internationales,
• des bulletins d'information,
• Accès à des informations spéciales (y compris des informations rédigées par des membres d’Équipe Canada) et à des récompenses via le site Web de FFC, en cours de refonte en 2019,
• Plus plus ...

Changements pour 2019 et au-delà:
Cette année, nous avons introduit quelques changements dans notre modèle d'adhésion. FFC passera progressivement à la perception des cotisations au début de l’année plutôt qu’à la fin de la saison. Notre raison de le faire est simple. Nous devons collecter les revenus des organisations avant le moment où nos dépenses arrivent à échéance. La majorité des dépenses des organisations telles que les FIP (Fédération internationale de pêche à la mouche), les CIP (Confédération internationale de pêche sportive) et les frais de site Web sont facturées en début d’année.

Par conséquent, en 2020 et au-delà, toutes les cotisations devront être payées avant le 28 février de l'année civile et les points du PRN ne seront pas reportés pour les pêcheurs n'ayant pas respecté la date limite. Si une cotisation est payée après la date limite, les points NRP des pêcheurs seront enregistrés rétroactivement pour l'année en cours. Les pêcheurs avec des circonstances extraordinaires peuvent demander au conseil par écrit l'autorisation de demander une date de paiement ultérieure.

Reconnaissant que 2019 est une année de transition, FFC accordera une flexibilité supplémentaire à ses membres pour cette année uniquement. Nous allons prolonger la période de collecte des cotisations jusqu'au 31 mai 2019. Les points NRP ne seront pas reportés pour les pêcheurs n'ayant pas respecté la date limite. Si une cotisation est payée après la date limite, les points NRP des pêcheurs seront enregistrés rétroactivement pour l'année en cours. Les pêcheurs avec des circonstances extraordinaires peuvent demander au conseil par écrit l'autorisation de demander une autre date de paiement.

FFC instituera des frais d’agrément de 5 $ pour tous les non-membres participant à des événements sanctionnés. Ces frais seront facturés au même moment où les organisateurs de l'événement collecteront des frais pour l'événement lui-même et seront soumis à FFC. Les membres actifs de FFC ne seront pas facturés. Ces frais sont inclus dans les avantages de votre adhésion. Les frais de non-membre payés par un pêcheur à la ligne ne seront pas comptabilisés pour un achat ultérieur d'adhésion. Par conséquent, les concurrents sont encouragés à acheter votre abonnement FFC 2019 avant le début de votre saison compétitive. Ceci est particulièrement important pour les pêcheurs en C.-B. dont la saison de compétition commence généralement au début de mars.

Ceux qui achètent une carte de membre et qui ne font pas actuellement partie du tableau des leaders du PNR verront leurs résultats de la saison 2019 ajoutés. Ceux qui sont actuellement membres du conseil des leaders du PNR et qui paient leur cotisation continueront à avoir leur nom et leurs résultats répertoriés dans le conseil des leaders.

Recommencer;
Les concurrents qui n'achèteront pas de carte de membre avant le 31 mai 2019 perdront leur PNR accumulé et devront recommencer à zéro (si leur inscription est postérieure à cette date).

Les cartes de membre de Fly Fishing Canada seront en vente à partir du 1er février 2019.

Les frais d'adhésion sont de 45 $ pour les adultes et de 25 $ pour les jeunes (les jeunes étant définis comme toute personne âgée de 18 ans ou moins au cours de l'année d'adhésion).

FFC acceptera le paiement de l'inscription par virement électronique à partir du 1er février 2019.

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 5, 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 January's Fly Tying Night will be "Leech 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.

FLY FISHING CANADA UPDATE FOR JANUARY 16, 2019

I am pleased to announce the names of the competitors that have been selected for the 3 Canadian National Fly Fishing Teams that will be representing Canada at the 2020 Commonwealth Fly Fishing Championship in New Zealand, and the 2019 World Fly Fishing Championship in Tasmania.

There were 6 selectors on this year’s selections committee. The objective of the selection committee was to select 5 competitors and a reserve for each of the teams that will be representing Canada at the 2019 and 2020 championships.

The selection process was based on the past 3 seasons NRPs (2016; 2017; and 2018) of each applicant, as well as which applicants have: exhibited a “team first” mentality; are well suited for the venues; and will generally make a great ambassador for Canada.

There were a total of 25 competitors that applied for a spot on the 3 teams, which bodes well for the future of our sport and Fly Fishing Canada’s participation at these championships. I would like to sincerely thank everyone who applied for a spot on these teams, as well as the members of the selection committee for their involvement in this process!

The team members for Team Canada White were automatically selected as a result of winning the Team Silver Medal at the last Commonwealth Fly Fishing Championship in Northern Ireland.

Without any further ado… here are the names of the members that have been selected for the 2019 and 2020 Canadian National Fly Fishing Teams (in alphabetical order):

Canada World Fly Fishing Championship Team:
John Beaven - Captain
Josh Gelinas
Ken MacAulay
John Nishi
Chris Puchniak
Ian Troup
Evan Paterson - Reserve

Canada White Commonwealth Fly Fishing Championship Team:
Donald Thom (Captain)
Ivo Balinov
Colin Huff
Todd Oishi
Keefer Pitfield
Ian Troup
John Beaven (Manager)

Canada Red Commonwealth Fly Fishing Championship Team:

Mike Learmonth
Colette Stroud
Rob Stroud (Captain)
John Wilkinson


Congratulations to all of the competitors that have been selected and best wishes for a safe, successful, and enjoyable championship!

Best regards,
Todd Oishi - President of Fly Fishing Canada

Cheers,

Carpooling to the beats will be arranged as soon as the competitors have identified their Group Letters and Numbers. The 3 competitors in each half of their group will carpool and stay together for that entire day.

--------

THE ROTATION
The following format for the rotation for this event has been created in order to ensure that all 36 competitors will fish a total of 10 beats at some point in time during this championship, which is the ideal and most effective way to ensure that there is an equal opportunity for all teams and individuals (everyone fishes the top producing beats as well as the lower producing beats).

There will be 6 competitors assigned to each Letter Group. With each Letter Group fishing on 2 beats for a combined total of 2 hours (1 hour per beat). 3 competitors will fish on 1 of the paired beats and the other 3 in their Letter Group will fish on the other beat.

Competitors will relocate and to the other beat in their pairing after 1 hour. This will ensure that all 6 competitors in each Letter Group will fish the exact same waters during each of the 2 hour sessions.

There is a 30 minute allowance for competitors to relocate to the other beat, which should be more than sufficient given the rotation that is being used for this championship and the close proximity of the beats that have been selected for the beat pairings.

Competitors are required to get off the water and relocate to their next beat in a timely fashion, and must adhere to the start and stop times on the schedule for this championship.

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, January 8, 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 January's Fly Tying Night will be "Blobs and Boobies"... 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.
