Fly Fishing Canada is a not-for-profit organization aimed at promoting fly fishing and, in particular, using national and international fly fishing championships to promote issues concerning fly fishing and conservation.

Although some anglers still balk at the concept of competitive fly fishing, these strictly catch-and-release events provide a focal point that brings fly fishers together from throughout Canada and the world, not only to exchange technical information about their sport, but also to address problems concerning conservation, water quality, habitat loss, and other environmental problems. Through these exchanges, many of the problems that plague freshwater fisheries in several countries may someday be beaten, or at least controlled in a meaningful manner.

Applicants Sought For 2015 / 2016 Canadian Fly Fishing Teams

Mont-Tremblant,
November 8 2014.
Fly Fishing Canada is seeking applicants to apply for membership on the Canadian Teams that will be participating in the following international championships:

35th FIPS-Mouche World Fly Fishing Championship and Conservation Symposium,
16-21 June, to be held in Jajce, Boznia and Herzegovina. See: www.srsbih.com for further details. Application details below.

36th FIPS-Mouche World Fly Fishing Championship and Conservation Symposium,
11-18 September 2016 to be held in Vail Colorado, USA. See: www.wffc2016.com for further details. Application details below.

To be eligible to apply for either of these teams, you must have competed in a FFC National Championship and Conservation Symposium.
Team selections will be made by an FFC committee consisting of at least five FFC directors/officers from across the country, and will be based primarily on an applicant's National Ranking Points 3 year average. ( 2012 to 2014 )
In addition to past results, other (more subjective) criteria will be taken into account by the committee, such as whether a particular applicant:

  • has a "team first" orientation;
  • possesses specific skills suited to certain venues; and
  • generally makes for a good ambassador for Canada and FFC at these international events.

If you would like to apply for any of the above teams, contact:

Additional details

Six anglers may be selected. As only five anglers can fish in any given session at any of these championships, selected anglers should be aware that there is no guarantee that any selected angler will get to fish in all or any sessions.

Applicants are reminded that they are responsible for paying their registration, travel and other expenses in attending these events. All applicants are required to attend if selected. We have not prepared detailed budgets for any of the events, but you can expect that attending one of these events will cost you at least five thousand dollars (and probably more, depending on travel and pre-competition guiding, accommodation and meal arrangements, although possibly less for Vail). Selected members of Canadian Teams for World Championships are generally expected to arrive at the venue together at least one week in advance of commencement of official practice, which results in the trip being over two weeks in duration. If you are unable to make this kind of time commitment, then you should not apply for a World Team. Further, if you have not yet competed at an international fly fishing competition, you are encouraged to apply for the team competing at the Commonwealth or similar international championships. A World Championship is not the place to ‘get your feet wet' in international competitive fly fishing. Regardless of the particular event, selected members for all teams are expected to openly share helpful information concerning the venue and associated fishing tactics at all times leading up to the competition.

Additional Considerations

The 2016 Commonwealth Fly Fishing Championships will be held in Mont-Tremblant Quebec.

The Unofficial date for the event is August 27 to September 2 2016.

The dates do not conflict with the 2016 WFFC to be held in Vail.

The selection for the Team(s) for the CWFFC will follow the 2015 Nationals.

The 2015 NFFC is expected to be held in Mont-Tremblant August 29 to September 4 2015. ( to be confirmed )

The dates do not conflict with the August 2015 World Youth Fly Fishing Championships, or the October 2015 US Nationals, both to be held in Vail.
