|You Can Only Pick Two|
The 1st Annual Small Stream 2-Fly Challenge will take place on Saturday May 14th. It will be held on a stream somewhere in Connecticut an attended by a group of small stream anglers. The challenge is the angler can pick only 2 flies to fish with. They can be dry, nymph, wet, or streamer. He can use only those flies he has selected. Once those flies are lost by any means the angler is finished. The angler will keep track of what he has taken, and other interesting tidbits of their outing. Upon the completion which will be about 2 hours we will meet back where we assembled and determine a winner.
We will have a little cook-out and swap stories of the event. It's going to be a great day, and if we have good weather it should make for a memorable time.
I'm going to make a shadow box and use the flies we used for the challenge. Along with the flies I'll list which ones were used by each of the anglers and include some of their thoughts. We hope to put the flies up for a raffle and use the money raised for a donation to one of several conservation groups.
This is going to be a fun day. I hope it can continue on an annual basis.
