Borracho Pescador Tournament

| August 20, 2019

Would you believe … I missed this tournament? I would never have known unless my powdercoater in Lewisville, Texas, had brought it to my attention. All I can says is, freakin’ incredible. Incredible to miss one of these tournaments, a tournament that has a fly fishing division that seems to be the main priority of this event.

So what I am going to do is offer free days – TUNING UP ON CARP – to the first three guys who are registered for the tournament. If you don’t think that will make a difference in your success? You obviously haven’t fly fished for carp.


The 2019 addition of Borracho Pescador (Borracho Pescador Ocho) will be held Thursday, September 19th – Saturday, September 21st in Port O’Connor Texas.

It is hard to believe this will be the 8th year for B.P.! We are extremely proud of this tournament, and are grateful to the participants and our sponsors for making this fishing tournament such an incredible event. 

Just like us, this tournament has changed over the years, from an opportunity for friends to get away for a long weekend of fishing and escaping the daily grind, to our reinvention in 2016, when we made the choice to make giving back an equally important part of our mission. Since then, we have raised nearly $100,000 for our cause. In 2017, we redirected some of the B.P. monies raised to help support the Texas Coastal Communities who were devastated by the effects of Hurricane Harvey, which made landfall just one month prior to B.P. Seís on the Texas Coast.
Aligning ourselves with Casting 4 A Cure may have been the easiest decision yet. We have a lot in common with the founders of C4C; our love of fishing, and family and friendships, but meeting Ella and learning her story, made their cause, our cause. We couldn’t be more proud of the impact our tournament has had in bringing awareness and raising money with the hope of one day finding a cure for Rett Syndrome. 

We cannot thank you enough for visiting our site, and expressing interest in our tournament. We hope to see you this September!


Casting 4 A Cure is a loose band of compadres and compatriots who fly fish and fundraise to find a cure for Rett Syndrome. We have pulled together many of the fly fishing industry’s leaders and they have taken on the cause like it is their own. Come join us at one of the events or become a sponsor and help the thousands of girls affected by this crippling neurological disorder.
