Lydia Ann Fly Masters Tournament Port Aransas Texas


Fellow Anglers,

It is time once again to start preparing for this year’s Lydia Ann Fly Masters Tournament.  We have the date set, venue secured and web site up to date and ready for registrations.

This year promises to be even better than the last six year’s events and should be an extra special tournament that you will definitely want to attend.  In addition to the new faces we expect, the regulars who have supported us from the beginning and a great excuse to get out fishing, you will certainly want to check out the improvements that Redfish Willie’s has made to their restaurant.  If you haven’t been by there lately, be sure to stop in and check out their new $70K pavilion they recently completed and have graciously allowed us to use for this year’s tournament!

Below are a few things I wanted to share on how each of you can help make this tournament the best ever:

–          Volunteer opportunities: This tournament belongs to each and every one of us that has participated over the past six years.  We want to get more people involved in the tournament to help spread the workload and to give everyone an opportunity to support CfR even further.  The biggest area of support we need is to help solicit donations from fly shops, venders and corporate sponsors.  We can also always use a hand on site for Late Check-In and on tournament day.  If you are interested in helping out, please send me an email  at [email protected] or call/text me at (210) 885-3730 and we can find the best spot for you to help.

–          Spread the Word: I know many of you are on different blogs, work for different companies, are members of different clubs, visit many local fly shops and run in circles of other fly fishing addicts.  Please help spread the word about the tournament to anyone you can think of that might be interested.

–          Save the Date: Of course, the tournament wouldn’t be what it is without all of your support over the past six years.  Be sure to put this year’s event on your calendar!  We look forward to seeing everyone again this year.
