3. Realistic Fly
Hook: Daiichi or your own choice
Please note: Judging will now include realistic flies which are truly related to fly fishing and which imitate insects that have a development phase in water.
- For the "Dry Fly" category, one pattern is required and a second should be your own pattern. This means that the contestant must submit two flies, the required pattern and his or her own pattern.
- It is not required that the flies be tyed on Daiichi hooks. Any brand of hook can be used in all categories if the participant cannot obtain Daiichi hooks.
- A fly tyer can compete in all categories.
- Very important: participants must follow the requirements, otherwise the submitted fly patterns will not be evaluated, that is, they will be disqualified.
Jury and Evaluation of the Submitted Flies
The evaluation of the flies will take place at the EWF 2021. The jury members will be announced closer to that time.
After the flies are judged, every participant will receive a promotional package of Daiichi hooks.
The three top participants in each category will receive a certificate, a medal, and they will appear in a German fly-fishing magazine.
Three winners of the 14th German Open Fly Tying Championship will be invited to tie flies at the 17th EWF in April 2022 at the suggestion of Gerd-Peter Wieditz, the initiator of the German Open Fly Tying Championship.
Participants must submit, to the address below, each fly packaged separately. Included with each fly must be a detailed fly-tying recipe (tying instructions) and a filled-out application. If a contestant ties several flies, they can be in a single container, but each fly must be separately packaged together with the corresponding tying recipe and filled-out application.
