Lydia Ann Fly Masters Tournament to Lauch at Aransas Pass Texas

| May 13, 2013


Feel free to listen to the audio podcast first. It’s a recent interview I did with Palmer Simpson.

“The purpose of the LYDIA ANN FLY MASTERS Tournament is to bring fly fishing anglers from all over the State of Texas, as well as other states, to compete for prizes, share in the enjoyment of fishing the flats, and have a good time, all the while never losing focus of the main reason for being there – to help support a wonderful, charitable organization.

The 2013 Beneficiary will be CASTING FOR RECOVERY. Please visit the “2013 Beneficiary” page to learn more about their cause, and to make additional on-line donations.

Aransas Pass, Texas, was chosen as the center for the tournament due to its near equidistance to Austin, Houston, and San Antonio. It is also close to the heart of the flats that many of us love to fly fish.

The tournament is open to both Boating Anglers and Kayaking Anglers with separate divisions for each. Redfish on the fly and Catch and Release are the objectives, but there are also “Open Species” divisions for both the Boaters and Kayakers just to make things interesting.

For a more complete description of the Tournament Format and Rules please visit the “Rules & Format” page within the website for a downloadable version. A downloadable Application is also available on the “Application & Info” page.We are striving to make the tournament as attractive as we can to all anglers by having separate divisions for the Boaters and Kayakers.

We are working with numerous sponsors to offer quality prizes for the top finishing anglers, as well as Raffle and Silent Auction Items. We encourage everyone that participates in the tournament or visits this site to support these fine and generous Sponsors.”

PUBLISHER’S NOTE – Be sure to click on the podcast above to listen to the audio interview. It really goes into great detail about the tournament and provides a pretty good guide on how to create a fly fishing tournament.
