I know this is a controversial topic, and Im really not interested in hearing why it is or isn't good for flyfishing etc. BUT I am somewhat interested in the concept and was wondering if anyone on this forum has been or is a competition fly fisher. Also wondered if there are any competitions that exist in misstate or SC pa that I could go observe. Thanks for any relevant info!

We have an actual champion around here somewhere, or should I have kept quiet? C'mon Shane, let's hear it!

I want to get into it. I guess for me it's just signing up for a competition I can make it to. Shane would probably explain everything better so I'll leave it to him. But if you really want to get an idea go over to the Trout Legend League website. There you can sign up for competitions, etc.

Check out Trout Legend. Guys are really helpful just as here. There will be a list of comps that are scheduled to be taking place. There is one on Spring this weekend. Also, knowing where you live there will be a few coming up in the winter. Yellow Breeches comes to mind. They usually involve stream clean ups as well.

I want to commend Shane for not answering to the negative post. Good for you. You are growing up in your old age

Why didn't you work "fully endorsed" into that somewhere? That would have been funny

Are these generally open to anyone or are they bound to a few folks who are on a "circuit"? I'd like to maybe consider fishing one of these just for fun , and because I'm incredibly competitive.

Open to anyone. You just have to sign up for one before it fills up.

No, Jack, you should not have kept quiet about this one.

As long as you have the registration fee, they'll be happy to let you partake.

In fact, if a bunch of you would like to give me money, I'd be happy to let you compete amongst yourselves for a percentage of that money.

Don't forget to get a NASCAR jumpsuit with all the silly endorsement patches! IMHO, which probably doesn't mean sh*t to "competative fly fisherman" It should be illegal. A sport "Really?"

Excuse me stewardess, I speak Crotchety Old Man.

He's saying that he finds the entire idea of turning a pastoral, relaxing sport into a competition to be a sad commentary on the state of things, and that those who partake in it are basically missing the whole point.
