The show’s casting competition allows all FFR attendees to compete for a conservation cause of their choice. The competition features distance and accuracy elements, with $5000 being awarded to environmental causes.
Women’s and Men’s division winners will receive a beautiful cup, and $2,500 to be donated to the environmental cause of his or her choice. Preliminaries will be held on Sunday and Monday, with the finals on Tuesday at noon.
According to Hutch Hutchinson, host of the Orvis/Angling Trade Helios Challenge “we’ll have an assortment of casting challenges and obstacles to simulate natural conditions and increase the challenge element. This unique event isn’t just a great time, it also gives industry conservation efforts a significant boost of exposure.”
Orvis will highlight the Helios Rods, the worlds lightest and best casting fly rods during the competition, and will post daily results in its booth (#624).
