Fellow Fly Fishers
Adam Lynch asked me to pass on the info below as he is looking for Judges and participants for this event.
I wanted to pass along information about FOR's upcoming first-ever fishing tournament. This event is a fundraiser for FOR and a good way to spread the word about our work.
We are recruiting people to both compete in the tournament and to serve as judges.
Here are some details about the event:
- The event is 2 weeks long (June 12-26)
- Participants register through the FOR website. Tickets are $25 for one participant, $45 for a team of 2, and $10 for a child under 16
- Participants will submit photos of their fish using the iAngler app, and compete for prizes for various categories, such as largest fish (across several species) and other small challenges.
- All participants will receive a special tape measure as part of the tournament. All measurements will be in length.
- Adults are allowed to fish only rivers and streams within the Rappahannock River system-- no lakes. Only participants under 16 can fish select lakes.
We are looking for 3 more judges. Judges will verify the photo entries to ensure that participants are being honest about the size and species of their fish. Each judge will need to log into the iAngler website on their computer every 1-2 days and click through photos of fish. The overall time commitment is less than an hour per day. Tournament participants cannot serve as judges.
Sign ups begin within the next week. Here's the Event page for the tournament: https://riverfriends.org/event/reeln-for-the-rapp-fishing-tournament/
