Note From Capt. Rick Grassett


Many of you have been kind enough in the past to donate a fly pattern for the Sarasota CCA Photo All-Release Challenge fishing tournament. Tournament dates for 2015 are April 24th (angler meeting) and April 25th (fishing day). The tournament will be held at Hidden Harbor Marina this year, a couple miles south of Stickney Pt. Rd on US 41 and will be catered by Texas Cattle Company. Mangrove Coast Fly Fishers will again be a sponsor of the fly fishing division. This year will be the 20th anniversary of the tournament.

We are planning for 24 fly anglers. Would you be willing to donate a fly pattern (24 all the same) to the box this year? I’ll need them by April 3rd if possible. Please let me know if you are able to donate and what pattern you are thinking of. Flies should be mailed to me or dropped off to Doug Forde at CB’s Saltwater Outfitters. Thanks very much. This is really appreciated and your support helps make the fly division of this tournament successful.
