I agree, Mike! I would have loved to have been able to stay longer and fish it on Sunday. That was a great day of fishing and time spent with the group, both on and off the water!

I had an awesome time with the other competitors at this competition! The weather co-operated, there were lots of trout were caught and released, and plenty of stories about "the one that got away!" There were certainly a lot of hatches happening during the competition, which was most likely the main reason why the fishing was so productive!

This was by far one of the most productive competitions so far this season, as everyone caught fish and we caught a combined total of 278 trout, with the biggest fish being by Megan Oishi and Rob MacCrae (tied) at a whopping total of 49 centimeters in length!

Thanks to all of the competitors that came out for Saturday's competition! Congratulations to the other team and individual medalists, and a special thanks to Bobby Danilkiewicz and Brian Danilkiewiczfor barbecuing lunch for the group!

Please share any photos that you took at this event or email them to me and I'll post them for you.

Cheers,
Todd

Fly Fishing General Discussions / Re: tying on location!!
« on: Today at 06:36:31 AM »
I tend to carry a large assortment and multiples of fly patterns that I would suspect to be productive for the venues at the time of year that I am fishing them, and also carry patterns that I would suspect to be less productive or "out of season", just in case...

I do bring my fly tying kit for tying precompetition and during the competition if I find or hear of a pattern that has been productive, and I don't have them. At one competition, I tied a fly (that I ran out of during a morning session) during the lunch break, and won the afternoon session. For that reason, I always carry a fly tying kit when I attend a competition where I'd expect to loose flies of am uncertain of the most effective patterns...

Sorry I missed this post!

I always place my hooks in my checked baggage, as I was told by an airline company that they were not allowed in my carry-on luggage due to the fact that they are sharp. I always recommend that you speak to your airline's customer service agent if you are not sure which items are not allowed in your carry-on luggage.

I would contact David Downie when you're in Scotland. He is a great guide and will offer you some stellar advice. Contact Michael Drinan in Ireland. They are both Top Guides and great guys!!

An email was sent out this morning to inform the competitors and teams that it’s time to complete and send in your registration forms and entry fees for the 2018 North American Loch-Style Fly Fishing Championship. Entry fees for this year’s championship are now being accepted and are due by the 30th of July.

I would request that the captain or manager of each team sends a reply to let me know that you’ve received this message, and then forward the email and documents to all of their members of their team, or contact me if you didn't receive the email.

There is a spot available for one more international team. Individual competitors that are interested in competing at this event are welcome to register as an individual, as there is a possibility that they might be picked up by one of the teams that is attempting to fill any vacant spots on their team.

Thank-you,
Todd Oishi - Organizer of the North American Loch-Style Fly Fishing Championships

An email was sent out to all of the registered competitors a few minutes ago. Please ensure that you and your team mate have received it and remember to bring the signed waiver form, 3 score cards, and $10.00 entry fee to the event.

I also need to know if anyone needs to borrow a drogue and thwart boards, so please respond or post here, so I can bring them for those that are without the necessary equipment...

I would like to remind everyone to be early so we can start the morning session on time. This is an electric motor only lake, and a fairly large lake, so the sooner we can leave the dock, the better.

Drive safely and see all of you Saturday morning!

Cheers,
Todd

Fly Fishing Canada NRPs / Re: New 2018 NRP scoring model
« on: June 12, 2018, 09:43:16 AM »
For those who might not have seen this; the following chart illustrates and emphasizes the importance and value of attending our Nationals, and how in the past it really only had a significant point value for the top 3 or 4 competitors, which IMHO was very discouraging for those who place outside of the Top 4 positions and especially those that finish 4th place (50% of the point for 1st place) and lower.

The current model that's being used (the far right column) immensely improves the point allocation for 95% of the competitors, as it tightens the point gap between each position.



11
Wow! I just wanted to sincerely thank you for all the valuable information and tips that you have been sharing with the teams as they prepare for the upcoming WFFC in Italy, Alex! I only wish that I was going, so I could experience your incredible fisheries and beautiful trout!

Outstanding effort on your part!

Cheers,
Todd

Fly Fishing Canada NRPs / Re: New 2018 NRP scoring model
« on: June 11, 2018, 08:26:47 PM »
I doubt very much that the current model will ever cause the demise of the Nationals! If anything, it will encourage more participation at our Nationals, as competitors attempt to climb to the top of the Leader Board as we build a larger pool of competitors across Canada.

Reaching the top of the NRP Leader Board can only be achieved if you can finish in the top 3 at Nationals, as no other competition awards a similar amount of points. Take for example this year's Nationals... Ivo and Colin are pretty much untouchable, as they were awarded the 2nd and 3rd highest NRPs at that championship, which combined with strong performances at their regional competitions and championships, have secured their spot near the top of the Leader Board. This example emphasizes the importance of attending Nationals in order to finish at the top of the Leader Board

The chart below demonstrates how the linear distribution system would work taking using the minimum required level of competitors for each level:



It's also important to remember that The NRP Leader Board is just one of several tools that are used by Fly Fishing Canada's selection committees for selecting competitors for our National Teams. Another significant and very important factor is an applicant's current and past performances at Nationals. The NRP Leader Board is designed to encourage more activity and participation by competitors at all FFC sanctioned competitions and championships, which is exactly what it has been achieving this season and last year!

As Mike and Ivo have mentioned, the board will be reviewing how the current system has been working at the end of the season and welcome your and any other competitor's input, observations, suggestions, and comments.

Cheers,
Todd

Fly Fishing Canada NRPs / Re: New 2018 NRP scoring model
« on: June 11, 2018, 03:31:12 PM »
The point values for the Level 4 and Level 5 competitions are based on average NRPs of the 5 competitors with the highest 2017 Transitional NRPs in attendance at those competitions (the last column on the right hand side of the 2018 NRP Leader Board).

The NRP system was overhauled and adjusted to allow for a more linear distribution between NRP points earned by competitors at any level of competition, so the NRPs on the 2018 NRP Leader Board were recalculated to allow them to transition to a linear distribution as well.

I hope this makes sense...

Cheers,
Todd

I'm an ESN fan, but a friend of mine seems to like the Helios. Wish I could offer more information...
