Invitation to the 30th Slovenian Open Fly Tying Championship 2017

Fly tying section of the Slovenian Fishing Association is announcing the 30th annual Slovenian Open Fly Tying Championship for the year 2017, one of the oldest fly tying contests in Europe.

1. Dry Flies
2. Nymphs & Wet Flies
3. Streamers
4. Realistic Flies

Conditions of participation are as follows:

1. Each flytier is allowed to compete in each of the categories with one fly only, which must be sent in 2 samples. The chosen fly should not be a part of the tiers participation in any of his/her previous tying competitions.

2. Package with each sample should contain:
- Name of the fly (Known or new);
- Password to prove the fly's origin (it can be anything, formed with letters and/or numbers);
- Description of used materials (Recipe);
- Size and type of the hook used;
- Name of the animal that is being imitated (if possible a photography as well! *This only considers category - Realistic Flies)

Jury will automatically reject all samples that will contain natural insect parts (such as wings, legs, etc) as a part of the fly!

3. In the accompanying letter tyers must write their names, addresses, e-mails, telephone numbers, country for which they compete, names of the flies and passwords. Letter should be in the enclosed envelope together with the fly. Copies of those letters must be kept by the authors until the end of the competition.

4. For the judging of flies jury will consider the following criteria:
- Proportions of the fly,
- firmness and technical aspect of the tying,
- suitability of the chosen materials,
- general impression and
- innovativeness;
- in the 4th category the “level of imitation” will be the most important criterion!

5. Jury holds the right to classify samples in different categories if necessary!

6. Decision of the jury is final!

7. Please send flies in a package that prevents them to be destroyed during shipping!
