SPACE IS STILL AVAILABLE for our 2nd Annual "303 Shootout" Casting Competition sponsored by Winston Rods, Scientific Anglers, and Howler Brothers!

This years event will be held in conjunction with our already wildly successful "Casting & Cocktails". 

Where: Washington Park (SE Corner of park, Louisiana/Gilpin)

When: Thursday, August 21st 5pm-7pm

What: Come cast a quiver of the latest Winston Fly Rods while enjoying a  BYO "canned" Beverage***.  We will have members of the Trouts Team, along with members of our Guide Service present to provide any and all casting instruction you would like. Never cast a fly rod before? No problem!!! It would be impossible to find a more fun, relaxing and FREE environment to work on your casting.

***(Remember park rules state all alcohol must be 3.2%)


Details of "303 Shootout" are as follows:  

This is an AMATEUR casting competition where up to 20 anglers will have the chance to show off their casting skills head-to-head format. This fun and relaxed event will have anglers casting to rings set up 25 and 50 feet. Each participant will cast the same 5wt rod, reel and line. This year's rod will be the brand new Winston NEXUS fly rod.  Each angler will have 3 practice casts, followed by 3 contest casts. 1 point will be awarded for the 25 foot ring, 3 points for the 50 foot ring. Maximum score for each round is 9 points. If there are tying scores after the first round of competition, casters will participate in a second round where rings will be moved back 10 feet each. Rounds will continue, with a 10 foot increase in distance per ring/per round, until we have a winner.   

Stop by the shop or give us a call to sign up. Space is starting to get limited! 303-733-1434

Competition will start at 5:00 pm.
