Please join us for the inaugural BRT One Fly Tournament to be held on Saturday September 30, 2017. The One Fly Tournament will provide an opportunity for anglers to participate in a fun fishing event and help raise funds to support the initiatives of Bow River Trout. Our primary fundraising goal for 2017 is to generate funds for our commitment towards the construction of two new planned boat launches at Ogden Bridge and Inglewood as part of the City of Calgary’s River Access Strategy.
Participants will have the option of purchasing a fully guided boat for the day at a cost of $600 ($300 per angler assuming 2 per boat), or bringing their own boat for $300 ($100 per angler assuming 3 people per boat). Every effort will be made to ensure anyone who wants to participate can.
The event is supported by Alberta Outfitters & Guide Association of Alberta and the local fly fishing stores with the generous donation of guides.
Guided Trip – To guarantee a guide registration needed by September 27, 2017.
Self-Guided Trip – Registration accepted until the morning of the tournament. Bur to guarantee a boxed lunch, registration needed by September 29, 2017.
The day will involve a morning meet-up to confirm registrations and distribute materials and a lunch, a day of fishing followed by a reception and awards ceremony open to the fishing community as a whole. The goal is to provide a fun social event and a good day on the waters that we all enjoy so much.
Further details will be available as the event approaches. Basic rules for the tournament will be available on the BRT website.
