What is the Two Fly Tournament all about?
The Two Fly Fly Fishing Tournament was created to promote corporate philanthropy for Wyoming charities. Former Governor, Dave Freudenthal, made it a priority to encourage companies making money in Wyoming to spend a larger portion of their charitable budget to benefit Wyoming causes. The Two Fly is not a professional contest; while competition is a part of the contest, the objectives are to enjoy a truly remarkable fishery, interact informally with peers in the oil and gas industry, and raise money for deserving Wyoming charities.
While fly fishing skills make scoring easier, the scoring system is designed to allow the novice to successfully compete with the bamboo heads. In fact, strategy may be equally as important as fly fishing skill to the winners, and enjoying the sport of fly fishing with old and new friends is the ultimate reward.
Members of the top three teams will receive premier fly rods and reels and the fisherman bringing in the largest fish will receive an original “Two Fly” bronze by artist, J. Burnham Rudolph. All participants will receive hats, shirts and other fishing gear as well as being eligible for various prizes. The Two Fly poster will ultimately be hung in participants’ and sponsors’ offices throughout the oil patch and will be the banner for the Two Fly Tournament.
Brown trout sponsors’ name and logo will be prominently illustrated on the Two Fly poster, as well as on the Two Fly Foundation web site and any printed materials and/or advertising. The rainbow trout sponsors will be listed as bullet points on the poster as well as on the web site and will be acknowledged on printed materials. A list of cutthroat sponsors will be placed on the poster and web site. Donations of equipment and/or services will be calculated at the retail price to determine sponsorship level. All donations by recognized sponsors received prior to February 15 will be included on the poster, all sponsorship received after that date will be acknowledged appropriately.
