New Fly Fishing Competition
« on: February 20, 2014, 10:06:36 AM »
Hello everyone,

We are a new and small fly fishing club from London, Ontario and we would like to announce a new flyfishing competition for the month of April. SottoFlyfishing Club would like to thank Todd Oishi for inviting us to post on this forum.

We have a new venue for the Good Friday competition: Lyndon Fish Hatcheries.

It is 1 hour drive from London, 15 minutes from Kitchener-Waterloo and a bit over 1 hour from Toronto.

Hope to see you all there!

Great job Cosmin! That's a very impressive list of competitors!

Good-luck, and please keep us posted on the results of this competition, and feel free to post photos of the event (photos are very helpful for showing what your event is all about, and for encouraging new people to come out and join in on the fun).
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...

Thank you Todd, I have the final results now. I am still waiting for the pictures. I will post some of them here but the whole event story/pictures will be posted on our blog www.sottoflyfishing.com
Also we will have some interviews/feedback (Q&A) from some of the competitors.

This is awesome. Great to know that there that the competition scene in that part of Ontario is livening up!!!

If you guys want to join the Eastern Canadian Fly Fishing Competitive League let me know: your future competitions would be advertised under the league.

We can also help with advice on competition formats and rules from our experience around Ottawa and Montreal.
You would also get the league's medals for the winners in your future events. 

Cheers,
Ivo
