    • North American Loch-Style Fly Fishing Championship

Maple Ridge, British Columbia will be hosting the 1st Canadian Youth National Fly Fishing Championship from April 26 - 28, 2019. Young fly fishers across Canada, between the age of 13- 18 years of age, are invited and encouraged to participate at this championship. This event will be a celebration of fly fishing and a great opportunity for young fly fishers to learn more about this sport and make new friends.

The top 10 competitors will qualify for a spot on the Canadian Youth National Fly Fishing Team and the opportunity to represent Canada at upcoming Youth World Fly Fishing Championships, as well as a variety of other championships. Several Coaches of the Canadian National Youth Fly Fishing Team will be on hand to mentor and assess the participants. Please contact Todd Oishi at: toishis@gmail.com in order to register for this event.

The four 3-hour sessions of this championship will be held on 2 lake venues and 2 river venues within the Fraser Valley. Competitors should already know how to fly fish and have a good understanding of knots and casting.  Competitors are responsible for providing their own waders, fly fishing equipment, nets, and flies. Boats will be supplied for the 2 lake sessions.

*** Previous competition or competitive angling experience not required. ***

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...

Will be looking forward to this!
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.

Hi Jason!

Yes, you are eligible to compete, as FIPS-Mouche rules state that competitors are required to be ages 14 to 18 at any point during year of competition. This mean that you are eligible to compete as long as you are 18 years old on January 1st of the calendar year for the event (2019).

Glad to have you onboard for this event!

Cheers,
Todd
