For those who do not have drogues, I will have plenty of drogues on hand. This competition will allow participants a unique opportunity to participate in a friendly-spirited competition, and to gain some additional competition experience.

We also need to know which of the participants can supply a boats and electric motors for this event and the name of their team mate. Individuals will be paired up to form a team.

This event will be the final competition of the season for the British Columbia Competitive Fly Fishing League's 2018 season. Please email Todd Oishi at: info@innovativeflyfisher.com in order to register for this competition.

We really want to encourage newcomers and fly fishers of all skill levels to come out to this fun and social event, and see what this competition and our group is all about. No need to worry if you've never fished loch-style, as it's basically fishing from a drifting boat and keeping your flies ahead of the boat while casting and retrieving your fly.

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...

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

That would be awesome seeing you two there!  Will put you down for a day of fun!  Lol.
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.
