2) Our 2016 perfection: In 2014, we came close. In 2015, we were close again. But in 2016, we were perfect. Yes, you read that correctly. PERFECT. As in everyone who participated in the event caught a fish… Some for the first time ever.
How did we do it? The answer is this man. Ben McGee. Thanks Ben.
Of course, like any respectable race, we have our winners, who went home with a slew of great prizes from our sponsors. They are…
King of WTF Hill: Brian MacPherson
Queen of WTF Hill: Lauren Kolb
Biggest Fish: Jim Reily
Smallest Fish: Damian Tabis
Top Male Flyathlete- Short Course: Scot MacPherson
Top Female Flyathlete- Short Course: Erin Spaulding
Top Female Flyathlete- Long Course: Lauren Kolb
Top Male Flyathlete- Long Course: Jason Willis
Oh, and in our traditional post-race smackdown, the short course and long course winners faced off in a corn-hole competition…
The short course team was triumphant, and then battled each other in a BB shoot out for the overall championship prize, a murdered-out custom fly rod from Rolling Rivers Anglers (Thanks Matt White!).
Scot MacPherson was this year’s grand champion. Congrats!
