Jackson Hole One Fly


Since we're on a competition fly fishing bender here's one that makes more sense given the strong fund raising component.

The Jackson Hole One Fly is a three day competion whose mission is to generate, manage and grant funding for projects that environmentally benefit trout and fly fishing.

Their web site has details on the competition and details on the groups who benefit from their grants. There are also future plans to post the award winning fly recipes.

Competition Fly Fishing?

The whole fly fishing competition thing seems a bit out of sync with the pursuit and the appeal seems a bit limited. We propose spicing up the World Fly Fishing Championships with the first ever World Championship Fly Fishing Tri-athalon and Mis-adventure Race to be held in Mongolia.

1st leg - Tie up 10 prairie dog patterns
2nd Leg - Run 20K in waders
3nd leg - Land Taimen with one hand tied behind back

We are Fly Fishing Team USA. Our mission is to proudly represent America as ambassadors and participants at the annual World Fly Fishing Championships.
