ODYSSEY ALL ABOUT THE SPECIES

OUR All Species Odyssey fundraiser tournament is all about the variety of species: A 20lb brown trout is worth the same as a bluegill.

Size, rarity, or difficulty of capture doesn’t matter, the winners will be decided on the number of different species they catch. Only in the event of a tie will we use the points system.

Trout only count for 4 species, so we expect limited time to be spent on the White and Norfork. Competitor can find a larger range on species on offer in the warmwater of Crooked Creek and Buffalo or Bull Shoals and Norfork Lake.

We also expect competitors to be jumping from water to water to rack up the species. There will be some scratching of heads to work out whether its worth trading fishing time for driving time.

Since fishing after dark is prohibited we expect big moves on watersheds to be made over night.

Just remember you have to be back at the fly shop for the 1pm ceremony.

The full package of Arkansas fly fishing should be on offer in early June, with perhaps only the hybrids and stripers not yet firing on all cylinders.

Jump on in download the entry form and lodge your entry in this two-person team event. The cost is $150 per team and every entrant will receive an official hat and shirt, swag bag, and are entered in for not only the winners prize pool but also drawing on door prizes from Yeti and other.
