The South East Fly Fishing League is the only Fly fishing League focused on Team competitions and standings. Team placings in each event contribute to overall Team standings at the end of the year and commence in a year end Championship held the last weekend of December.
Unlike other leagues the South East Fly Fishing League is not focused entirely on Trout. We sanction events focused on Saltwater and Freshwater species and different formats. If you have an event you would like sanctioned please use the Contact page to see how your event or idea can contribute to the League.
If you are wishing to start or include a team in the League please contact us as well. This is a FREE membership League where funding comes from event registrations only.
*ALL EVENTS ARE SUBJECT TO A 72HR SCORE VALIDATION WINDOW BEFORE SCORES ARE CONSIDERED FINAL.
*ANY SCORE SHEET THAT IS NOT COMPLETELY FILLD OUT CORRECTLY WILL BE SCORED AS A BLANK FOR THAT SESSION. (missing a name, a date, session, flight, controller name, and any assortment of single or combined items)
*ALL SCORING WILL BE INITIALLY DONE AFTER THE LAST SESSION OF THE EVENT. HOSTING TEAM IS RESPONSIBLE FOR PROVIDING A LAPTOP FOR SCORING AND UTILIZING THE SCORING SPREADSHEET IF INTERNET IS NOT AVAILABLE TO ENTER SCORES DIRECTLY INTO FLY COMPS. SCORING WILL BE DONE WITH DRAWN REPS FROM THE EVENT THAT WILL BE CHOSEN RANDOMLY FROM DIFFERENT TEAMS. THESE REPS WILL DOUBLE CHECK SCORE SHEET ENTRY AND CALCULATIONS ON EACH SCORE SHEET TO VERIFY RESULTS FOR ACCURACY.
Trout Moving Water events utilize Fips Mouche rules unless a modification to the rules is approved and posted.
Saltwater events use an SEFFL custom scoring table.
Freshwater Stillwater trout and non trout Stillwater or river events use an SEFFL custom scoring table. (All fish measured in CM. All Trout measured and Scored as in FIPS. All non target species Bass,Bluegill etc are worth 25pts each TOTAl regardless of size for any Stillwater event using Trout as target species. Any event utilizing another species as target species would follow fips rule of 20cm minimum, and the 20points per cm over 20cm rule for scoring. By Catch Species would be 25points each regardless of size. )
Anglers earn points on the leaderboard based on their placing. All events have a maximum point earning of 36 points and reduce by 1.5 points for each position before any multipliers are applied.
1 day events have a 1 time multiplier
2 day events have a 2 time multiplier
3 day and championship events have a 3 time multiplier.
Single Day Event Example:
20 person individual tournament
Maximum Points = 20
1st place 20 x 1 (1 day multiplier) = 20
2nd place 18.5 x 1 = 18.5
3rd place 17 x 1 = 17
Two Day Event Example:
48 person individual tournament
Maximum Points = 36
1st place 36 x 2 (2 day multiplier) = 72
2nd place 34.5 x 2 = 69
3rd place 33 x 2 = 66
After multipliers are applied, individual teams on events utilizing a 2 man team format will have their points split evenly.
Two day ( 2 Man Team Format ) Event Example:
24 – Two Teams
Maximum Points : 24
1st place 24 x 2 (2 day multiplier = 48 / 2 (2 man split) = 24
2nd place 22.5 x 2 = 45/2 = 22.5
3rd place 21 x 2 = 42/2 = 21
Championship Event ( 2 Man Team Format ) Example:
20 – Two Teams
Maximum Points : 20
1st place 20 x 3 (3 day multiplier = 60 / 2 (2 man split) = 30
2nd place 18.5 x 3 = 55.5/2 = 27.75
3rd place 17 x 3 = 51/2 = 25.5
Team standings are determined by the cuprace events. See competition formats for in depth information.

All events are to hosted by a league team.
All events will utilize registration through http://www.flycomps.com
All events and competitors are expected to uphold the highest standard of respect and sportsman ship.
All events are catch and release only.
All competitors are expected to honor their commitment to an event they sign up for. A drop from an event an angler is signed up for will earn a 2placing point penalty at their next event only affecting their leaderboard point earnings not their placing in the actual event.(if you place 4th in the event, you will only earn points for a 6th place finish), and on a second offense earn a 4 month suspension from participating in any League events.
All competitions are non-refundable within 20 days of the event unless the event is cancelled or rescheduled due to weather or unforeseen circumstance. Event organizers have the option to amend and change this standard at their discretion for any event they host.
Rain and Inclement weather: Calling a competition us up to the event organizer, a partial refund, full refund, or credit for future event may be offered.
1day events that are cancelled due to inclement weather are encouraged to pick up at the first satisfactory date to hold the event as rescheduled.
2day events where both days may be cancelled due to inclement weather are encouraged to reschedule at the earliest convenient time.
2day events where one day may be cancelled due to inclement weather will utilize scoring from the completed sessions(where all flights completed the same number of sessions) as final sessions to score the event unless a venue change or weather delay is implemented by the organizer. At such time scoring would be final and prizes/awards/points distributed on a finalized basis.
All controllers are to stay with their angler during the session and be ready to score in a prompt expedited way.
Anglers must not reach into the net to remove flies or any reason once the fish has been netted. Any fish brought to the controller after and angler has put hands in the net will be a disqualified fish. Judge should verify hook as barbless, check fly for scent or residue, and remove the flies from the fish.
Scoring the fish shall be done by placing the measuring tray into the anglers net at a 45 degree angle and keep the fishes head submerged as much as possible once in the tray. The tail will be pinched for measurement. The measurement where the tail crosses the cm line but not the next line is the measurement of the fish.
This scoring process is meant to provide better releases for fish caught, and decrease drops during session scoring.
