CATSKILL FLY FISHING CENTER
Competitive Casting Competitions: The Catskill Fly Fishing Center and Museum, August 1 and 2, 2015.
Casting competitions are not fly fishing competitions. They are simply distance and accuracy casting challenges to test one's skills. This is a fine opportunity to take a look at your own ability as a caster. You can have some fun by bringing everyone in your local club or organization to finally find out "just who is the best caster in the bunch"; challenge friends; set a personal, goal; but most of all, have fun. You never know, eventually every dog has his day. Casters can compete in only one Competition, but can cast for fun in any other or all three. All casters will have a chance to win as each caster will receive a ticket for a random drawing to win several prizes.
Casting will be held in conjunction of Summerfest 2015- Saturday, August 1 from 9:30 AM to 4:30 PM and August 2, from 9:30 AM to 12 NOON.
Three Different Casting Opportunities:
The 5th Annual Hardy Cup Bamboo Rod Casting Tournament Casters must provide their own rod, reel and fly line with 7.5' leader. Top three finishers will receive a Hardy Fly Reel. The Winner's name will be engraved on the Hardy Cup that will permanently reside in the Catskill Fly Fishing Museum.
Hardy/Royal Wulff Fly Line Graphite Rod Casting Classic. All casters will cast a Hardy rod with Hardy reel lined with a Royal Wulff Triangle Taper fly line that will be provided. Winners names will be engraved on the Classic Cup that will permanently reside in the Catskill Fly Fishing Museum.

Prizes will be awarded to top finishers in all three Divisions.
Tycoon Trophy Fiberglass Rod/'409' Line Casting Challenge: All casters will cast a Tycoon Tackle Fiberglass Fly Rod lined with a '409' fly line formulated just for casting fiberglass fly rods. Awards will be presented to top three finishers. The Winner's name will be engraved on the Tycoon Trophy that will reside permanently in the Catskill fly Fishing Museum.
The Triple Crown: Just for the fun of it, we will be challenging the top three finishers of the Hardy Cup Competition to a Cast Off. Casters will be invited to cast in the remaining two competitions for an overall score. The person with the highest total points will be declared Casting King of the Catskill Fly Fishing Center 2015
All Casting Competitors in each contest will be judged on three casts: two for distance and one for accuracy. Each Contestant will have up to six practice casts before completing three competitive casts. All lines will be required to have a 7.5' leader.
