24th Slovenian Open Fly Tying Championship for a best artificial fly of 2011 and 13th National Fly Tying Championship Report

»Georg Christel (Germany) wins the Contest once again!«

This year we´ve been really happy for having a possibility to judge and grade, but most of all admire such a nice patterns that came to our Contest which was a crossbreed of different approaches, techniques, innovation, different concepts of fly tying. Tyers from all over the world, demonstrated the art of fly tying at its best.

Fly Tying Commission of the Fishing Assosiation of Slovenia has organized a 24th Slovenian Open Fly Tying Championship and 13th National Championship which makes this event very special in a world fly tying history. Our Championship is the second oldest in Europe and we are very proud of it. This year we received 72 patterns from 11 countries. They arrived from: Bosnia & Herzegovina, Finland, France, Italy, Canada, Kosovo, Germany, Serbia, Spain, USA and Slovenia.

Awarded nymphs in the Open Contest:

1. Saša Bencun Roka (SRB) - Pecinara

2. Alfons Schefhold (GER) - Fortuna

3. Aleš Lukmar (SLO) - Laška Betka

Tyers competed in 4 traditional categories: dry flies, nymphs & wet flies, streamers and realistic patterns. Commission consisting of: members S. Erlih, B. Podbevsek, D. Obad and myself as a president, has graded patterns upon a criteria, determined in a Official Contest Regulations. Criteria consisted of the following elements: correct relation of the tying elements, firmness, technique used, adequacy of the materials used, general impression, inovativness and originality. In realistic category we gave special attention to the imitating value of a pattern.

Awarded dry flies:

1. Mikel Elexpuru (ESP) - Quironomid Emerger Dead

2. Stojan Josimović (KOS) - Žuta jednodnevka

3. Branko Gašparin (SLO) - Olivka

Commission is very happy to see that the quality of received patterns improved throughout the years. Competition among participants is bigger and that is the goal we wanted to achieve because this also improves the general quality of our contest.

We have to mention that we still notice some mistakes which are made by some of the participants who do not follow the rules of the contest. This year we couldn´t grade a few flies because tiers sent only one pattern and not two same patterns as it is stated in rules of the contest. Unfortunatelly such patterns left without their grades. Some tiers correctly send two flies in each category but they are not similar- for ex. one is tied on a hook no. #6 and the other on a hook no. #10. They look the same but their size differs. Its a pitty that such patterns have to be disqualified or that they are left without proper grades.

Awarded streamers:

1. Herold Holger (GER) - Huchen Tube Kombi

2. Davide Sacchi (ITA) - Foxy & Piky

3. Ivan Tomaselli (ITA) - Steam Sosti

We have to point out how important it is to send flies in proper packaging. Sometimes we get flies completely smashed in an envelope, so we cannot grade them with the grades they deserve.

We are very satisfied with a participation of foreign participants but somehow slovenian fly tiers are still in a minority. In Slovenia there are many fly tiers and we really hope that they send more their patterns to us. There is absolutely no need to be scared of a contest. Despite of that, some Slovenian tyers achieved a really great success in an Open Contest, which is a specially important achievement.

German master of fly tying Mr. Georg Christel is a this years absolute, overall winner with his realistic pattern »River Hunter« with a top notch 389 points out of 400. He repeated last year´s success when he won the contest with the pattern called »Maifliege« or May fly. This year he was awarded by a custom made split cane rod by the famous Slovenian rod-maker Radivoj Šavli. We would like to thank Mr. Šavli for his kind support of the contest and of course to Mr. Georg Christel for winning the Championship again!

Awarded patterns in the realistic category:

1. Georg Christel (GER) - River Hunter

2. Saša Bencun Roka (SRB) - Yellow Mayfly

3. Stojan Josimović (KOS) - Perlodes Microcephala

For the end we would like to express our sincere congratulations to all winners and a big thanks to all participants. You are kindly invited to join our 25th Slovenian Open & 14th Nationals. We are proud of the fact that we have the possibility to run this event, the second oldest fly tying contest in Europe and that we enjoy such a trust of all of you who send your masterpieces to us.
