Are you up for a fly fishing challenge? The club will have a 3-Fish Challenge for club members starting June 1st and concluding on October 15th. The challenge is simple. Catch 3 or more freshwater species in ONE day with a fellow club member. Complete the challenge and you will be recognized at the Annual Banquet on October 29th.
The PVFF member who catches the most unique species will be the BIG winner and will be awarded a BIG prize at our banquet in October. In addition to the big prize, the winner will be bestowed with all club bragging rights for the year! As the old MasterCard commercial would say – That is priceless!
There are only a few rules to follow. For all fish entered in the challenge, you must use a fly and provide the name of the fly, the fly size used to catch each fish, and the location where you caught the fish. Given the history of fisherman and their ability to tell fishing tales, you also must fish with a club member so that your day’s catch is verified. A picture would be nice, but is not necessary.
Examples of freshwater fish species ‘for the challenge’ may include (but is not limited to) the following: brown trout, rainbow trout, brook trout, golden trout, smallmouth bass, sun fish/blue gills, largemouth bass, crappy, catfish, white chub/fallfish.
Join the PVFF 3-Fish challenge. There is a simple form to complete which you can download from the home page of our club website or you can send me an email via the Contact page and I will email you a copy. Good luck and happy fishing!
