Competitive Fly Angling
When: Thursday April 20, 7:00 PM: Fly Tying Demo by Mike Norton at 6:30
This month Tim Barrett and Mike Norton will introduce you to the world of Competitive Fly Angling. Find out what these events are really all about. Participants must not only demonstrate their competitive prowess on streams but also in lakes using three fly rigs. Competitive Fly Angling is controversial with fly anglers either loving it or hating it, but few are impartial. Tim Barrett and Mike Norton will be discussing what goes into competitive fly fishing and what things we use today in our own style of fly fishing that are commonly used in competitive fly angling.
Both Tim and Mike have participated in several competitive events. From the smaller AuSable Two-fly challenge in Wilmington, NY to several regional qualifiers for the US team.
They will discuss the format of a competition, common rules, equipment, techniques, and conservation efforts.
Tim is a local long time NYS Guide focusing seasonally on the Delaware Rivers, Catskill Streams, Adirondack Rivers, and Salmon River.
