How often have you thought to yourself, I should really work on my cast, but couldn’t muster up the motivation to break out your rod and risk looking silly casting alone to trees and bushes in your backyard? Well, you’re not the only one. If you’re anything like us, we thrive in competitive settings and without it we find it difficult to work on the little things that will ultimately put more fish in the net. The solution: Fly Golf!
FlyCast and Mystic have teamed up to offer anglers a unique and enjoyable way to hone in on their casting, take part in a little friendly competition and support a good cause. Like traditional golf, we’ve adopted many of the same rules and combined them with the benefits of backyard casting practice. Players will take part in a 9 hole course and compete for the lowest score as well as a shot at the grand prize (see above) provided by Mystic Outdoors. 50% of the proceeds from this tournament will be donated to our partners at The Mayfly Project which is a 501(c)(3) organization that uses fly fishing as a catalyst to mentor children in foster care. We know first hand the power of fly fishing and its ability to bring people together. So let’s rally together, have a little fun and support a good cause!
The tournament will be shotgun style (i.e. groups of three individual players will all start on a different hole) and begin at 11:00 am. The round itself will take roughly 2 hours with distance and short game casting competitions, a raffle as well as beers and food to follow. Like traditional golf, we welcome you to come a little early to get a feel for the course, warm up and BS with your fellow fly golfers.
