“World’s Largest Saltwater fly fishing tournament”

A grass root saltwater fly only tournament in Tampa, Florida. Based on two man teams.

Low barrier to entry and open to fly anglers of all skill level. The idea is to engage and grow the sport of saltwater fly fishing.

The tournament was started via Facebook in 2011 and has sold out every year since.

The first annual Salty fly resulted in the largest fly tournament in Florida at 45 boats with many on the waiting list.

Now now with  2016 event with over 100 two man teams and still many on the waiting list.

The Salty Fly Tournament is the largest Saltwater Fly fishing tournament the world.
