There is the opportunity for drop-in competitors each week. If you are interested in participating and or watching a group please show up at the shop Saturday mornings at 7:45. We will do our pairings and assign beats. The anglers will then head out and try their best.

It is asked that everyone (competitors and spectators) involved adhere to physical distancing recommendations and wear face coverings at all times.
