19TH ANNUAL TWO-FLY CHALLENGE EVENT: MAY 18-19TH, 2018

THE 2018 WEEKEND LINEUP

The Two-Fly Challenge begins Friday, May 18, with a day of fishing. Concluding the day there will be a Fly Tyer's Reception that night where anglers can learn new skills from talented tyers. This will be held at Wilmington's newest gathering spot Pourman's Tap House. Fade to Blues will perform live music. The ever-popular fly casting competition will be a part of the evening's festivities as wel. 

On Saturday morning, check-in begins early and is followed by another exciting day of fishing on the beautiful Ausable River. The weekend finishes up on Saturday evening with a banquet complete with prizes, raffles and a presentation by a special guest speaker.

Rules for the catch-and-release tournament are simple: Anglers are allowed to bring two barb-less hook flies of any combination or patterns. Once the flies are lost or unusable he or she is out. Anglers must fish with a partner and each must record the total number of fish caught, the length of each fish and the cumulative number of inches. Only fish handled by the angler and successfully released will count as caught fish. The winner is determined by the highest cumulative length of each fish caught.

There are four competitive categories: junior, men, women and professional. Each fisherman can choose just two flies to use per day. They must pick their flies they will use at the beginning of the day. If they lose them, they're done.
