Before I start with the statistics I would like to tell you that this competition had very much the same caracteristics with the competition on Kvetonov Lake in Czech Republic, were this year the World Fly Fishing Championships will have it as a venue.
The only diference was that we came up with the score boards not having enough volunteers as controllers.
Now in the statistics you can see in the first columns(from left to right) the rank and the names. Then it’s a separate column for Sessions ranking and the Sum of them. This is the key in a Fly Fishing competition. I noticed at the competition when I was posting the results after every session many of the competitors were not too familiar with the marking system, although we posted this in the Rules. I tried to explain them there but for more clarity I will try to explain here again:
Everybody knows that you win if you catch the most fish. True, but this is happening only in a session and only in your group. So basically there is a small/short comp in every session but only between the competitors in the same group. At the end of the session according to the number of the fish caught we will have a ranking. This session ranking becomes points and at the end of the comp we will make the sum of them. That means less points means the competitor had achieved a higher position in the previous sessions. So whoever has the least points is the winner.
In case of session placings sum leads to a tie the first tie breaker used is the total number of the fish caught during the whole competition, in case the tie persists the biggest fish is the second tie breaker used. If the tie is still there the competitors will be awarded with the same placing and the next place will be empty.
For more details you can send me an email or shoot a question on our Facebook page or if you are an avid reader I would like to invite you to check out the http://www.innovativeflyfisher.com forum. You can find there all the competitions from Canada, US and more. We posted our comp here:
