Are you up for the 3- Fish challenge again? Last year’s challenge was a lot of fun so we are going to do it again this year. The club will have a 3-Fish Challenge for club members starting now and will conclude on October 15th. Can anyone beat Denny Grizzle, the 2022 Club Champion?
The same rules as before. Catch 3 of more fresh water species in ONE day with a fellow club member. Complete the challenge and you will be recognized at the Annual Banquet in October.
The PVFF member that catches the most unique species will be the BIG winner and will be awarded a BIG prize at the Annual Banquet in October. In addition to the Big prize, the winner will be bestowed all club bragging rights for the year! Just ask Denny. I have seen him on numerous fly-fishing shows since he won last year 😊.
There are only a couple of rules to follow. All fish must be caught on a fly with the name of the fly, the fly size which was used for each fish entered in the challenge and the location.
Given the history of fisherman and their ability to tell fishing tales – you 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 Fresh water 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 and you can download this off our club website or you can send me an email (firstname.lastname@example.org) and I will email you a copy. Good luck and happy fishing in 2023!
