Participation in the German Open Championship in Fly Tying
This is an open championship so all can participate! That means the Championship in Fly Tying is also open for international competitors.
Members of the jury and the organizers are excluded from participation.
You must be 17 or older to participate. Those younger are invited to participate in the Children’s Fly Tying Championship (EWF Master) hosted by the EWF.
1. Dry Fly (required pattern)
H & L Variant by Barry Ord Clarke as shown here: https://thefeatherbender.com/2013/03/27/fly-tying-couse-13-the-h-l-variant-dry-fly/
Hook: Daiichi or your own choice, in size 10
1a. Dry Fly
Your own pattern, Hook: Daiichi or your own choice
Both dry flies (1 and 1a) will be judged together. If only one fly is submitted in the overall category, the entry will not be judged.
Hook: Daiichi or your own choice
3. Realistic Fly
Hook: Daiichi or your own choice
- 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 2019. We are very pleased to present our jury members:
- Igor Stancev - Macedonia
- Nadica Stanceva - Macedonia
- Theo Atanassov - Bulgaria-Germany
- Andrés Touceda - Spain
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 12th German Open Fly Tying Championship will be invited to tie flies at the 15th EWF in April 2020 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.
