HERE FISHY FISHY

Do you have what it takes to be the Costa 2 Fly X-Stream Champion? You’ll need to be able to cast accurately, huck for distance, and control nerves you’ve never felt while holding a fly rod. Oh yeah, you better be able to fish too! Both professional and amateur anglers are welcome.

Competition will be head-to-head in various fly fishing events including a combination distance and accuracy challenge that will test the best of the best. Be one of the top twenty men’s qualifiers or top five women’s qualifiers and move to the big stage, with crowds watching and cast again while trying to control your nerves. Once the top eight men and top two women have been crowned, throw casting out the window as it will be time to test angling skills on the waters of the Vail Valley. Test your ability not only against other anglers, but against the wild trout ready to pounce on your perfectly placed presentation. Oh yeah, here’s the catch, of all the fly patterns in the world, we’re only going to let you use two!

Costa 2 Fly X-Stream participants are also eligible for the ‘Best Catch’ photo competition! Please see ‘Best Catch’ section of the Rules for details.
