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 2023
The 18th annual tournament will be held on May 10, 11, and 12, 2023. There will be an estimated 30 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 $2.8 Million Donated!
Because of the generosity of our donors and sponsors, Two Fly was able to award $290,000 to our 2022 charities following our May 2022 event! This was the largest annual donation in Two Fly history! The Child Development Center of Natrona County was awarded $120,000. Central Wyoming Hospice & Transitions received $70,000 and the Platte River Revival was given $100,000.
In 17 years, the Two Fly Foundation has awarded $2,896,000 to 27 unique charities. Previous beneficiaries include Joshua’s Storehouse, CASA of Natrona County, CLIMB Wyoming, Wyoming Food for Thought, 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.
