This just came across from Rob Woodruff:

Lower Mountain Fork River Foundation
2009 One Fly Contest
[ppw id=”133616244″ description=”LMF One Fly Contest 2009″ price=”.10″]

Saturday, February 28th
7:00 a.m. until Noon
Mountain Fork River, Broken Bow, OK.

There are some changes to the rules for 2009

– Starting Point – Lower wooden foot bridge parking lot – Spillway Creek.
– Pairings will be drawn just prior to the start.

The rules are simple:
1) As the name implies – one fly only. No bait, lures, scents or droppers.

2) Each contestant will be provided the exact same fly pattern. This fly will be the only fly eligible for use in the contest. The fly pattern will be kept secret until the start of the contest.

3) Each contestant will fish that fly ONLY. Lose the fly, you are out.

4) The fly may be cut off the leader and retied as needed. Your partner must be notified that you are doing this.

5) A fly that is broken off on an obstruction may be retrieved and retied to the leader. Your partner must be notified that you are doing this.

6) A scored fish is one that is brought to hand and released; no “LDR’s”. Your partner must be notified that a fish has been landed and scored.

7) Each contestant is responsible for keeping his or her own score.

8) Scoring
Each fish will be scored as ONE POINT
Any Trout over 12″ and less than 14″ will receive an additional point (total of 2 points)
Any Trout of 14″ and less than 16″ will receive an additional 2 points (total of 3 points)

    Somebody needs to represent! Just not some hack like me. I am thinking you and LK need to hit this thing. Funny he (Woodruff) always calls it “Broken Bow”. I guess Beaver’s Bend just doesn’t sound as romantic! shannon
