Sounds like a fun event. One interesting thing I noticed is that the event starts 30 minutes AFTER sunup, yet there's a "no dock light fishing" provision. Seems a little odd. At what time can people begin to fish docks?

This was an effort to limit people crowding behind houses to fish. The 30 min after sun rise will hopefully minimize this.

BUMP! Extended forecast looks good so far. Remember, no registration required, fish that day with your one fly, keep track of fish and length, show up at Harbor Walk Ships Store at 4 with you 10 Flies, Beer or drink of choice to share, and your food dish to share.

Bump! Conditions will be tricky but it should be fun. Remember, half the flies will be donated to wounded warriors.

Shoot me a PM on details to get through the gate, or if you need directions.

Mad props to Dawg for winning, but more importantly for also braving the weather and supporting the cause. He's a better man than I

Unfortunately we did not have a good showing. Dawg won by default. The 20+ mph winds were a little tricky. I actually broke my push pole staking out. A few folks who didn't make it to the weigh in are sending in flies for the donation to Project Healing Waters. If any one is interested in still donating flies, pm me and I will send you the address.

The next one will have a more advance notice, and cover a period days to allow for better participation and conditions.

Dawg was kind enough to donate his winnings.

Hopefully we can come up with a better plan next time in order to achieve a better turn out. I think the cause is worth while, as anything we can do to spread the sport and help troops coming home from action is a good thing.
