Trouts Fly Fishing would like to thank everyone who participated in the “303 Shootout” last night. We’d also like to thank St. Croix Fly Rods and PBR for sponsoring the event as well as all of the others who joined us for Casting & Cocktails. We had a blast and we hope you did as well.
Here are a few photos from the big event...
Jay Park goes long in round 1
Mark Vibber checks out his back cast
The Dr. is in the house - Fred Miller with his eye on the prize
Marshall Putzier punches a loop that will get him into the second round
Phil Beranato opens one up... just a bit outside

Jeff Johson... all business
Scotty D goes long
Carp junkie Dan Kagey closed down Round 1
Here's how it went down. After two competitors tied in the first round, we had a quick coin toss that was won by Kyle Wilkinson. The “303 Shootout” was on.
Kyle handed the first cast over to Marshall Putzier who put his last cast on the mark at 50ft. The crowd in attendance went WILD.
With that cast, Marshall locked up the title for the first ever “303 Shootout” and won a brand new St. Croix Avid 5 weight fly rod. We’re sure Marshall will be back to defend the title when we have the next "303 Shootout."
