2019 British Columbia Fly Fishing League Season Finale and Awards Ceremony

Date: Sunday, November 17, 2019
Time: 12:00pm – 2:00pm

This is an open invitation to all forum members, spouses, friends, family, league members and non-league members. It would be great to have as many of you as possible at this event! So consider this as your invitation to come out to support the youth team members and celebrate the memories and friendships that we've made during the 2018 season, and to recognize the accomplishments of the adult and youth members of the British Columbia Fly Fishing League.

This year has been a great season with many fantastic competitions (and some very challenging ones as well). This season there will have been a total of 8 competitions held within British Columbia (4 rivers and 4 stillwaters), with an total of 88 competitors competing at these competitions and championships.

The results from those competitions have been recorded on the British Columbia Competitive Fly Fishing Leader Board. Medals and trophies will be presented for both the adult and youth categories at the season finale and awards ceremony on Sunday, November 17, 2019. Competitors must have competed at a minimum of 2 league events in order to eligible for an award.

Here are the categories for this year's awards:

Overall Categories:
• River Champion (highest points earned at river competitions)
• Stillwater Champion (highest points earned at stillwater competitions)
• Largest Catch - Stillwaters (based on the number of fish scored)
• Largest Catch - Rivers (based on the number of fish scored)
• Top International Participant
• Most Sportsmanlike
• Service Award - Special Presentation

Adult Categories:
• Competitor of the Year (overall champion on the Leader Board)
• Top 3 Adult Competitive Fly Fishers for British Columbia (19 years old and older)
• Female Competitor of the Year

Youth Categories:

• Top 3 Youth Competitive Fly Fishers for British Columbia (12 – 18 years old)
• Most Improved Competitor (Youth)
 

Spouses, children and parents, as well as non-league members are invited and most welcome to attend this event. This will provide a great opportunity for your parents, spouses, and children to meet the parents, spouses, and children of your fellow league members and share in some stories of the good times, memories, and friendships that we’ve built over this past season. It’ll also allow them to share the experience and perhaps better understand why we’re so willing to brave the elements, and better understand why we're so passionate (and obsessed) about this great sport!

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...

Please include two extra guests for Stanton Jack-  his mom Wannah, and his daughter Bridget. Both are convinced he will be buying them fish’n chips :)
Thanks!

I will be there with at least one guest (Jason Puchniak).  Not sure if Sandy will be coming, but I will update this post if she does.
I will fish anywhere and find beauty in it.
