WE are stoked to work with Montana Fly Company to sponsor the 4th Annual Lloyd Wicker Memorial 2-Fly Tournament on June.
Together with MFC we will be supplies the flies free of charge, that all competitors will use for the one day event run by Project Healing Waters Oklahoma.
Oklahoma Program Lead Chris Gorman told PHW’s Daniel Morgan that Lloyd Wicker was an extremely avid fly fisherman.
When he passed away suddenly and unexpectedly, his wife Gayla contacted me and asked if I could accept all of his fly fishing collection as a donation. I told her I would be glad to and went to her house to inventory and collect the donation. It was mind blowing how much stuff he had. Over the last 4 years, we have sold most of the rods and gear but we are still sitting on a storage unit full of tying materials. Each year we sell a little bit more to help raise money for our program. The donation has been very, very helpful.
Cost for the tournament is 40.00 per entry.
