    Default NEW SEASON: Sept. Tying Competition - TOTM - Autumn

    This season will run a full year with the competition beginning this past August and the final month's competition running July 2017.

    The Editor is actively trying to solicit some token prizes for this seasons winners.

    Rules are basically the same as last time, with a few changes that are listed and underlined below.

    This month's, SEPTEMBER, theme is going to be Autumn Flies. Tie your favorite or most successful fly to fish as the temperatures cool and the leaves begin to change color.

    Another general theme, but theyll get more specific next month.

    Here's the deal.

    1. The tying competition will be a different theme each month.
    2. At the end of each month there will be a poll for voting favorites. The poll will run the entirety of the following month.
    3. Points are awarded for simply entering, with additional points awarded for placing first, second and third.
    4. Whichever participant has the most points at the end of the year wins the prize.
    5. Maybe we can get something for second and third place, as well.

    Points work thus,

    1. Each entry will be worth 4 points. You get points for simply entering. This is an increase in the participation points awarded from last season.
    2. First place will be worth 10 points.
    3. Second place will be worth 8 points. This is an increase in the points awarded from last season.
    4. Third place will be worth 7 points. This is an increase in the points awarded from last season.
    5. In the event of a tie for first, second, and/or third in number of votes, all tied participants get equivalent points.

    This means you can win the whole shebang without ever winning a single month's competition simply by participating. Though, there is incentive for tying something nice whichll net ya some better point totals and increase your odds.

    Again, this month's theme is going to be Autumn Flies.


    1. One entry per participant.
    2. Fly mustve been tied by you.
    3. One photograph of a fly or flies following the theme. Entries with more than 1 photo will be immediately disqualified. Ill be sticking to my guns on this one. ONE PHOTO.
    4. More than one fly in the photograph is acceptable, they may not be identical (ie. one can be upon a tube and another upon a hook or one on a single hook and another on a double, etc.) but they must all be the same pattern.

    Have at.

    Default The Boyo

    I was considering tying a LT Special for the Miramichi when I started thinking about my first salmon trip 21 years ago to the Umba and its fall run osenka. I only used two flies back then; an Undertaker and a Black Bear Red Butt. Here's a flamethrower style fly popular today called The Boyo.

    Default The Calvin's (variants)

    I've not been tying much of late so hope you don't mind a few old photos for entry this month and last month's too, truth be told.

    Red was a "bogey" colour of mine for a long time. This pattern went a long way to rectifying that.
