The purpose of the Blue River One Fly Contest 2013 is two-fold. First, the mission of this event is create a day of greater fellowship among the fly fishing community on Blue River. Secondly, this event is designed as a fund raising event with the totality of monies raised by entries fees and mulligan flies going directly to the Oklahoma Department of Wildlife in support of the Catch & Release section at Blue River. Funds will be monitored by and through the Blue River Association a 501(c)3 non-profit organization.
*As the name implies, one fly only. NOTE: Contestants will be given one fly and will also be afforded the opportunity to purchase a mulligan fly. The mulligan fly is by no means mandatory and is of the choice of the contestant as a strategy or avenue to further support fund raising. The cost of the mulligan fly will be $10.00 and this fee will also go directly to the Oklahoma Department of Wildlife.
*All contestants will receive the same pattern and the pattern will remain a mystery until the start of the event. When a contestant loses the fly (or flies) then that contestant is out. If the contestant loses the fly (or flies) and wishes to continue fishing for the sake of fishing then that contestant must turn their score card over to the person they are paired with.
*Contestants will be allowed to retie their fly, but must notify their partner they are doing so.
*Dry flies as strike indicators will not be allowed.
*Scored fish are fish brought to hand. Each contestant must alert their partner when a fish is brought to hand.
*Each contestant is responsible for keeping their own score card.
*Each contestant should devise a way for measuring fish that are caught. Length of each fish scores additional points.
*This entire event is based on the honor system.
This event will be limited to 36 contestants. Deadline for entering is February 22nd, 2013.
