CFR Pink Fly Contest

Fly Contest

The North Country Angler is pleased to announce the Second Annual Pink Fly Contest.

The rules are simple. You simply tie a fly, of any type, using pink as the primary color. You send your creation to a participating fly shop along with a five dollar check made out to Casting for Recovery; yes, we will also except cash. The flies will be judged by a distinguished panel of judges. The winners will win valuable prizes most notably a Ross Rhythm “Reel in the Cure” Fly reel. The reel is pink, of course, and is number 38 of a limited addition of 100. It is a size 1 for 2 to 4 weight lines. Second prize will be a Temple Fork Outfitters Casting for Recovery fly rod. The winner will have their choice of either a eight and a half foot five weight or a nine foot eight weight. Both rods are four piece.

You need not be an expert tier in order to enter a fly. The important thing is to enter and contribute to a great program. Those who enter have the option of donating their flies to Casting for Recovery or have them returned. Should you wish to have your fly returned please enclose a self addressed envelope with the correct postage. Flies will be judged on originality and the best use of pink.

All of the flies entered will be displayed at the New Hampshire Fly Fishing Show in Pelham. All flies must be received by February 29th.

Last year we were able to raise nearly fifth-teen hundred dollars for Casting for Recovery.
