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...

Great job, Colin! Thank-you for your efforts, and for announcing and opening registration for this year's championship so far in advance!

Kenauk is an excellent venue and opportunity for anglers across Canada to enjoy one of the best angling experiences that can be found in eastern Canada!

Cheers,
Todd

Can someone elaborate the rules changes please?
My understanding is that dry/dropper is not allowed. Is that right?
How about washing line, where you have 2 dropper flies suspended by the point one?
Thanks

Ionut, I will let Colin answer your question as he is the organizer for the 2019 NFFC (I just post what's been sent to me), but in regards to your question, my interpretation is that according to the rule change, it is the bung technique specifically that is banned (suspending flies below a floating fly).

A washing line does not suspend the other flies "below" the floating fly, but rather on a horizontal plane.

I hope this makes sense...

So, the good old dry/dropper is not allowed? But washing line, like the one in the photo is?


What if the middle tag is about 10ft? That's allowed, right?  ;D ;D

Also, what's the reason for not allowing non-canadian citizens? Permanent residents are accepted? International students?

The no bobber-fly rule is to prevent a 5 session bobber-and-worm off like the last few events that have happened there :)

Ionut, my interpretation would be that if the point fly floats such that it does not get pulled under by the other flies, then it is a bung/suspender and would violate the rules.  If the fly (booby) sunk, then it isn't a bung (I.e. a booby with lighter bouyancy). 

But my words aren't official and i will defer to the organizers.

Wish i could attend.  But with Nals and tassie,  it is too much time off all at once.

Edited for autocorrect typos... 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.

The intent of the rule is to stop “Bung Fishing”, as apparently that is how most of the competitors have been fishing back east, and the organizers feel that it is stunting the growth of the competitors, as there is really very little skill required to fish that technique.
 
I hope this answers your question.
