    • North American Loch-Style Fly Fishing Championship
Competition #1 of the  B.C. Provincial River Fly Fishing Championships

Date: Sunday, December 1, 2013
Location: Lower Mainland Region of British Columbia
Competition Water: Venue to be announced via email to the registered participants.

Registration opens on November 4th at 6:00pm precisely. Please contact Todd Oishi after that time by email to register:  info@innovativeflyfisher.com  .
Registration for this competition is limited to 32 competitors (General Membership and Youth Team Members combined), and is based on a first-come/first-serve basis. 3 spots for this competition are automatically reserved for the members of the Youth Team, in the event that this competition fills up before they're able to register. The 3 spots that are reserved for the Youth Team Members are also being dealt with on a first-come/first-serve basis.
 
Once the registration is full (and each of these competitions promises to be sold-out events), additional registrants will be placed on a waiting list and moved onto the list of participants in the event that there are any cancellations. The first 3 competitors on the waiting list will automatically qualify for a spot in the next competition if there were no cancellations. If one or more of the competitors on the waiting list are unable to attend the next competition, their spot(s) will automatically be given to the next person(s) on the waiting list.

Members of the Youth Team will be placed on a seperate waiting list. The first 3 Youth Team members on this waiting list will automatically qualify for one of the 3 spots that have been reserved for Youth Team Members at the next competition. In the event that any of the Youth Team Members on the waiting list are unable to attend the next competition, their spot(s) will automatically be given to the next Youth Team Member(s) on the waiting list.

This registration process should help to guarantee that everyone has the opportunity to attend at least 3 of these competitions, as the waiting list will ensure that 38 competitors (32 registered competitors and 6 on the 2 seperate waiting lists) will be able to secure a spot when registration opens for each competition. It is the responsibility of each competitor to ensure that they take the time and effort to register as soon as registration opens for each competition...

For me, the quality of a trout is not measured in inches or pounds, but rather by the journey and circumstances that allowed our paths to cross...

Due to the overwhelming response, and the recent addition of several new competitors to the West Coast Rivers Winter League, I've added 2 more gorgeous stretches of water/beats for this competition, which means that we can now increase the registration to accommodate 32 competitors! This also means that the majority of the league members will now be able to participate at this event and/or will be guaranteed a spot at the next competition.

At this point we have 43 registered league members that are active competitors and members of the following 12 teams: Team USA; Team Cormorant; Team Mustang; Team Endiable; Team Mφtley Crew; Team Airflo; Team Tight Lines; Team Dredge Hogs; Team MRFD; Team King Fishers; Team Hungary; and the Canadian Youth Team. Who would thought that we would have had such a great response and so much interest in this year's rivers championship!

Please remember that registration is based on a first-come/first-serve basis, and this competition still has the potential to be filled up within the first hour that registration opens at 6:00pm on November 4th...

Thanks again for the outstanding support and overwhelming interest in these events! Your participation will not only help you to grow and improve your skills as competitors, but will help to inspire and provide some very on-the-water training and coaching for the members of our Youth Team!

Sincerely,
Todd

If someone says you fish too much, stop talking to them. You don't need that kind of negativity in your life.

I will fish anywhere and find beauty in it.

Don't be a Pessimist. Don't be an Optimist.  Be a Realist and change when you need to.

I chase the allure of standing in a river, casting dries in an attempt to watch that beast come up and take my fly.  Then I usually blow it by setting the hook to soon....
