Here are the 2018 National Ranking Points (NRPs) that have been recorded for the 2018 season. There have been 17 FFC sanctioned competitions recorded at this point in time, but please stay tuned, as the results from the competitions for this season will be added and the NRP Leader Board updated on a weekly basis. Results for both river and lake competitions are posted in order to provide some insight on how and where the points were earned (scroll down for more details and to see all of the competition results).

The average of 3 results are used for calculating a competitor's 2018 NRPs. These results must include 2 of the following: 1 Best Lake Competition Result; 1 Best River Competition Result; or 1 Best River/Lake Competition Result before they can use their 2nd Best Result (see below for more information). A competitor's previous season's NRPs may be used as one of the results if it exceeds their 3 Best Results.

Please contact Fly Fishing Canada for more information on how to have your competition results and statistics for the 2018 season included on the 2018 Fly Fishing Canada National Ranking Points Leader Board for Canadian Competitors: flyfishingcanadapresident@gmail.com

2018 NATIONAL RANKING POINT LEADER BOARD including the results of 17 sanctioned events, with 69 registered competitors. Updated on September 17, 2018:
(scroll down to see the full list of competitions and the results of each competition)


* Please note that it is the responsibility of all competitors to check and verify the accuracy of their results.

NEW CHANGES to the NRPs for the 2018 SEASON:

LINEAR FORMAT FOR AWARDING NRPs:
The NRP system has been adjusted to allow for a more linear distribution between NRP points earned by competitors at any level of competition. This will favour consistent performers as opposed to competitors who have one strong competition in a season.
For the purposes of calculating the 2018 NRP, the 2017 NRPs have also been changed to a linear format only on the 2018 NRP Leader Board.

BEST 3 RESULTS ARE USED for CALCULATING the 2018 NRPs 
In order to better reflect a competitor's performance, starting in 2018, 3 results will be used for calculating a competitorís NRP for the year.  A competitorís results from the current yearís competitions as well as their previous yearís NRP may be used in order to calculate their NRPs.

The results for calculating a competitor's current NRPs consists of the average of 3 results that must include 1 lake competition result and 1 river competition result, and may include 1 of the following result as the 3rd factor (whichever possesses the highest point value): 
a. 2nd Best River Result.
b. 2nd Best Lake Result.
c. Best Mixed River/Lake Result.
d. Previous Seasonís NRPs.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

CALCULATING NRPs for the CURRENT YEAR:
Step One:
The highest point value of a competitor's Best Lake Result, Best River Result, or Best Mixed Lake/River Result will be the first factor used for calculating their NRPs.

Step Two:
a) If a competitorís Best Lake Result is used as the first factor, then their Best River Result or Best Mixed Lake/River Result (whichever is greater) will be used as the second factor used for determining their NRPs.

b) If a competitorís Best River Result is used as the first factor, then either their Best Lake Result or Best Mixed Lake/River Result (whichever is greater) will be used as the second factor used for determining their NRPs.

c) If a competitorís Best Mixed Lake/River Result is used as the first factor, then either their Best Lake Result, Best River Result, or their 2nd Best Mixed Lake/River Result (whichever is greater) will be used as the second factor for determining their NRPs.

Step Three:
The third factor that will be used for calculating a competitorís NRPs will be either their previous yearís NRP or their next greatest current year result (Lake Result, River Result, or Mixed Lake/River Result), whichever is greater.

* Please note that a competitorís results from three Mixed Lake/River Competitions will be used for calculating their NRPs if those 3 reults are greater than their other results.
** Ties are broken based on the tied competitors' best result for the current season.

CALCULATING NPRs for COMPETITORS WITH LESS THAN 3 RESULTS:
Zero points will be used as one of the factors when calculating the NRPs for competitors with only 2 results.
Zero points will be used as two of the factors when calculating the NRPs for competitors with only 1 result. 

------------------------------------------------------------------

Note: Competition organizers are responsible for submitting FFC Sanctioning Form prior to their event for FFC Sanctioning Approval Number and must confirm that their results are accurate before submitting for inclusion on the NRP Leader Board. Organizers are required to submit the results for their events to Fly Fishing Canada within a period of 7 days of the completion of the event or the results will not be eligible for inclusion for the 2018 NRPs.

The NRP Leader Board will be updated within a 7 day period of any results being submitted and verified for accuracy and compliance by Fly Fishing Canada's NRP and Rule Committee.

Thank-you,
Todd Oishi - President of Fly Fishing Canada

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...

Todd thanks for keeping this list up to date.

What are your thoughts on including the individual competitors home province in this list?  It might invoke a bit of provincial rivalry?  but I think that would be a good thing.

Thanks,
G

Thank-you for the excellent suggestion, Gaby!

Please note that I've added the home provinces for all of the competitors. It is the competitors' responsibility to check for accuracy and contact me if you notice any errors.

Thanks,
