Excited to announce registration has opened for our 2022 Summer Fly Fishing League!
This will be our 7th edition of the league and it continues to grow with new and returning anglers. The most consistent feedback we get from competitors is how surprised they are with the amount of fun and community that the they experience. Not to mention having the chance to improve your skills and meet new anglers each and every week!
Competition starts May 7th and runs for 6 consecutive Saturdays until June 11th. We anticipate some periods of high water during this season. We will run the comp unless it is deemed unsafe and or compromising to the angler.
Summer League will meet Saturday mornings at the Reno Fly Shop at 8:00 am. Angler pairings will be selected at random each week, the pairings will then be assigned randomized beats by drawing. We found this approach makes each week a new and exciting experience.
If you are unfamiliar with the League. We assemble up to 20 anglers on Saturday mornings. Randomly draw pairings then randomly assign beats to those pairings. From there the anglers will find their beats determine who goes first and second. Each angler will have 1 hour to catch as many trout as they can and record the length of each fish over 8 inches. Total number of inches caught will go to that anglers weekly total. While one angler is fishing the second angler is there to assist in measuring fish and record length of fish caught. 15 minutes is allowed between heats to allow the second angler the chance to get rigged and ready. Following the two 1 hour heats the pairing returns to the Reno Fly Shop to record results.
The Summer league will have 10 beats with available spots for 20 anglers. Pre-registration fee is $50, which will give you priority access to all 6 Saturdays. If you can’t commit to all of the days, no sweat, drop-ins are accepted on a first-come/first-serve basis and are charged $12/day if you get in. There will be a prize purse for the season’s final podium.
Please call or stop by the shop to pre-register for this season.
Rules are unchanged from previous seasons. Please review these for how things work and what to expect. We will review these each week for new and returning anglers.
