Check out Lot #43: Guided Day for 2 Anglers on the Bow River, which was donated by Fish Tales Fly Shop!

This is your opportunity to fish what has been identified as one of the best trout streams/fisheries in North America! This river will also be used in a future NFFC, so learn how to fish it and the best flies for targeting the rainbows, browns, bulls, and whitefish that reside in this river...

It'll be great to have you out for this one, Cody!!

3
I highly encourage anybody out east thinking about participating in a clinic with Ivo and Ciprian to do so. 

Learn to use the thousands of dollars worth of equipment you bought; for a couple hundred.  This should be a no-brainer.

I agree! Any competitor that wishes to increase their skill-level and knowledge of our sport would be wise to bid on any of the "Courses Packages" or guided trips, as they will have the opportunity to learn what the instructors have learned at a fraction of the cost and without having to fly overseas to do so...

Welcome to Team Canada White's Online Auction for the 2018 Commonwealth Fly Fishing Championship in Ireland. Thank-you to all of the generous sponsors, companies, and individuals that donated items for our auction and for their support! We are still looking for sponsors and accepting items for the auction, so please contact Todd Oishi at: toishis@gmail.com if you'd like to donate an item(s) for our auction.

Please take a moment to read the rules before bidding on the auction items...

AUCTION RULES:
1. $5.00 is the minimum, acceptable bid increase.

2. Receipt of bids will be acknowledged by the auctioneer through email, and the bid will being posted on the item in a timely manner. Bidders are responsible for monitoring the auction for any dollar amount increases on the items that they're bidding on.

3. In the event of there being two or more identical bids for the same item, the bid that was submitted first will be the bid that is accepted.

4. Please note that all bidding for items on this on-line auction closes at 7:00pm on Friday, February 2, 2018 (Pacific Standard Time), however the "Two Minute Rule" applies to all auction items that have active bidding wars within the final five minutes of the auction (see following paragraph for information on how the Two Minute Rule works).

5. Two Minute Rule: This rule allows for the person willing to pay the most to win the auction item. The auction ends at 7:00pm on February 2, 2018, so all bids must be in BEFORE 7:00pm. 7:00pm IS TOO LATE (the time stamp on your email must read 6:59pm or earlier). The auction IS OVER at 7:00pm. However.....If there is a "bidding war" - meaning that more than one person is actively bidding on the item during the last 2 minutes, then the 2 minute rule comes into play.
EXAMPLE:
a) The auction closes at 7:00pm. Joe bids $50.00 at 6:58 (identified by using the email time-stamp).
b) Frank comes along and bids $55.00 at 7:00pm. Because Joe's bid and Frank's bid are 2 minutes apart, the auction does NOT close as originally stated in the description and bidding continues.
c) Joe then bids $60.00 at 7:02. Because Joe's bid and Frank's bid are 2 minutes apart, the auction does NOT close and bidding continues.
d) Frank now bids $65.00, but his bid doesn't come in until 8:05. Because there are 3 minutes between bids (more than two minutes between the last 2 bids), the auction is over and Joe wins the auction for $60.00.
Note: ANYONE can join in the bidding war at ANY time.  Just because they weren't there to start it, doesn't meant they can't finish it :)  So, if Trisha wants to come in at 8:04 and place a bid, when she hadn't before, she can, and she could win it if nobody else bids after her, or a bid is placed 3 minutes (or longer) after her bid.

6. Email notifications will be sent out to the successful bidders requesting settlement of their bid(s).

7. If payment is not arranged and/or received within five days, the auction item will be offered to the next highest bidder.

SUBMITTING YOUR BIDS:
- All bids must be emailed to Todd Oishi (the auctioneer) at the following email address: toishis@gmail.com 
- All bids must be submitted by email and must include the following details:
1. Your first and last name.
2. The item Lot Number.
3. A brief description of the item.
4. The dollar amount of your bid.

Fly Fishing General Discussions / Re: The underbelly of flyfishing
« on: January 02, 2018, 03:22:54 PM »
Thanks for sharing this very informative and eye-opening documentary, Grant!

I didn't realize that this was becoming such a big, social and economic issue these days, but I suppose that it's a sign of the times...

Here is the list of upcoming FIPS-Mouche European and World Fly Fishing Championships:



Set your goals and targets, and work towards achieving them!

Please note that the Maple Ridge Fly Tying Night will be bumped back to Tuesday, January 9, 2018.



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 9, 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 January's Fly Tying Night will be "Spring Prep"... 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.
