IT’S ALL SPECIES ODYSSEY EVE and we have 19 teams sleeping nervously tonight as ahead of the Ozarks most prestigious and quirky fly fishing tournament.
The two person teams will be waved away from the store at midday tomorrow, fishing until dark, and from 6am to 1pm Sunday. Teams score by catching, photographing and releasing safely one of 30+ gamefish species available in Arkansas public waters.
More than $4000 in prizes for the top 5 teams and giveaways we will be drawing for individual entrants.
Our sponsors have been amazing in what is a truly tough time for the fly fishing industry and we hope y’all will think of them when you next need some gear. Look through the full list of prizes here including Sage, RIO, Nautilus Reels, TFO, Simms, Fishpond, Orvis, YETI, Sweetwater Brewery and more.
Five of the top 6 teams from 2019 are back again plus local smallmouth guru Duane Hada. But when size doesn’t matter, only adding a new species against the clock, anything can happen.
Fish can be caught on any public water in Arkansas, though the limitation that the special item has to handed in to tournament HQ to qualify for prizes means travel time is precious. For the second year in a row both lake levels and river levels will be high.
