Good luck to all at the comp!

Just a note that a question was asked about the use of poly leader and if they are allowed.

The brief answer is YES but that the length of the poly leader is considered part of your total leader length, and this length cannot exceed twice your rod length.  So if you are using a 9 foot rod, your total leader (including the poly leader and tippet) cannot exceed 18 feet total, including any tipped, etc....

I will fish anywhere and find beauty in it.

Don't be a Pessimist. Don't be an Optimist.  Be a Realist and change when you need to.

There's room for 3 more competitors to register for this event. Don't be shy, and come join in on a fun day on the water with a great group of guys! No previous competition angling experience necessary. This will be a great introduction for newcomers and rookies that are wanting to learn more about our sport through participation at these events.

A fun and informative time is guaranteed!

Please post here or contact me at toishis@gmail.com to register or for more information.

Thanks,
Todd

Good Day Everyone,

As you are most likely aware, Sunday's competition is going to be a cold one, so please dress appropriately and bring along a hot beverage to warm you up during your lunch break.

Please confirm via the email that I sent this evening, that you are 100% positively, 100% committed to attending this competition if your name is on the list of registered participants. It is absolutely critical that you attend Sunday's competition if you confirm your attendance, as we need an accurate headcount in order to match the number of competitors with the fishing partners, beats, and groups.

More details will be sent out tomorrow, including the beat maps, after I receive the confirmations and have an accurate headcount for determining the number of beats that we will need, which will be based on the number of competitors that will be attending this event!

Thanks,
Todd

Registration  now full! We have 20 competitors, which means that we will have 10 competitors per group fishing on opposite sides of the river.

All 20 competitors will fish the same waters at some point during the competition. Stay tuned to your emails for more details...

Sorry about that it does sound wrong as we were just joking around. And NO you cannot fish the spawning channel on the East side below the dam. There are no fishing boundaries on that channel.
