Truckee One Fly Tournament

Here's a couple way overdue shots from the Truckee One Fly Tournament. It was a great event hosted by the UNR Wildlife Society Club at the Nature Conservancy land east of Reno. I think a good time was had by all even though the fishing was a bit tough. I got stoked and managed to land a couple nice fish. Both were exactly 17.5 inches. The first guy here was a real charger. The second bit in the wild horse run. They came down and got a drink right in front of me. That was definitely a highlight. My two fish were good enough for first place. I ended up donating the prize to the Wildlife Society club. It was a last minute decision. There was a couple real nice girls from the club that were my judges and measured my fish. I like to see kids stoked on nature. The prize was an orvis helious rod 5wt and a Battenkill IV reel. They are holding a silent action with it to raise money for the club. I think it closes today though so sorry for the way too late post on this. Just been crazy busy through Oct. so blogging has been minimal.


Here's a link to an article about the event.
