After the success of the inaugural tournament in 2017 we would like to invite you to participate again this year. The 2018 One Fly Tournament will take place on Saturday, September 29, 2018. Anglers are invited to actively participate in the event, or enjoy a day on the river that will also support Bow River Trout Foundation’s initiatives to “Advocate and Support the Bow River Fishery”.
This year’s event will offer the following registrations:
The Event Format:
A morning meet up to distribute lunches and facilitate final registration will be held at the Toad and Turtle parking lot off 130th Avenue SE between 7:30 and 8:30 AM. A reception for participants and the angling community at large will be held at the Toad and Turtle afterwards, beginning at 5:00 PM.
For anglers competing in the tournament, awards will be presented at 7:30 PM. In order to qualify for awards participants must submit pictures and catch charts either in person or by email/text photo of the charts prior to 6:30 PM. Only participants present at the time of the awards presentation are eligible for prizes.
Please join us for what should be a great day on the water and a fun evening with friends both old and new.
Bow River Trout Foundation is planning to raise an estimated amount of $67,000 this year on fundraising campaigns. It will cost our organization $32,000 to raise this for a net return of $35,000. The money raised will be going to our commitment to improve two river access boat ramps on the Bow River. For further information, please contact Peter Crowe-Swords at 403-680-8320.
