The "No Fly" Tournament of Champions

You've likely heard of the Jackson "One Fly." That special flyfishing extravaganza where competitors get to choose a single fly... well, we've decided to kick it up a notch.

I'm proud to announce plans for the Fly Talk "No Fly." Every competitor will be issued one single #10 hook. Then it will be up to him/her to scrape together miscellaneous garbage (natural or synthetic) from the riverbank and fasten that to said hook using only dental floss, super glue, or duct tape. Your imagination is your only limit: cigarette filter flies sometimes work... discarded bubble gum egg flies... the spent tippet water-walker... (others?)

Real insects, parasites, worms or other critters will be disallowed.

Now, all we have to do is figure out where to hold it, and what species we should fish for. I'm thinking downtown Denver, and any fish caught should be fairly counted. But I'm open to suggestions. Who wants in? I think the prize should be a gallon of antibacterial soap.

Joey, corn doesn't count as a critter, you can win this!

KD

Indeed Riceman... by the way, you're the tournament director.

Jon Malovich

Hey you could count me in and I would say a good date range for the tourney would be say Sept 11th-16th.

Who would get top sponsor Billing? McDonald's or Burger King since their names are already all over the stream side!
