Welcome to the Two Fly Foundation website!
The Two Fly Foundation appreciates how lucky we are to have the North Platte River, a marvelous fishery, right at our back door. Our passion for the environment and our communities prompted us to organize an annual fly fishing tournament as a way of helping local charities and various rehabilitation projects on the North Platte River. Fly fishermen from the oil and gas industry unite each year to compete for great prizes and fun. Each year’s tournament provides plenty of entertainment and stories to tell, but more importantly affords the oil and gas industry yet another opportunity to help the environment and our community.
Two Fly Tournament 2019
The 15th annual tournament will be held on May 8, 9, and 10, 2019. There are an estimated 25 two-man teams competing for the trophy fish. Each day holds many activities and lots of great fishing. The tournament is concluded with a ceremonial evening and auction of fine art – all of this benefiting worthy causes. We are passionate about our river and the betterment of our community. That is why the focus of our tournament is to raise money for Wyoming charities and preserve the wildlife habitat — all while having fun!
Over $2 Million Donated!
Because of the generosity of our donors and sponsors, Two Fly was able to break a record in donations following the May 2018 event. We were able to award $250,000 to our 2018 charities! The Child Development Center received the largest check we’ve written to date – $125,000. Greater Wyoming Big Brothers Big Sisters was granted $87,500 and the Platte River Revival was given $37,500. With these checks, Two Fly has surpassed the $2 million mark in total donations.
In 14 years, the Two Fly Foundation has awarded $2,121,000 to 23 unique charities. Last year, we partnered with Wyoming Food for Thought and Children’s Advocacy Project. Previous beneficiaries include Joshua’s Storehouse, CASA of Natrona County, CLIMB Wyoming, Make-A-Wish and Wyoming Cares. Each year, a portion of our proceeds goes to the Platte River Revival, a restoration and rehabilitation project along the North Platte River.
The Two Fly Foundation Board of Directors is in the process of collecting request letters from organizations desirous of receiving a portion of the proceeds from our upcoming event.
Interested in being a future beneficiary? Either mail or email us a request letter explaining your organization. These are usually quite simple – who you are, what you do, why you are requesting to be a Two Fly beneficiary, and any other pieces of information you feel are pertinent. Please submit your letter to us in late summer/early fall of the year prior to the event. For the 2019 event, we ask that letters are submitted by October 31, 2018.
