Fishing For The Fight is hosted by a group of dedicated anglers who have come together to organize an exciting new fly fishing competition. The proceeds generated from this event will go directly to families who are fighting cancer, people who have special needs, and children with chronic illnesses. The funds defray the costs of travel, food, and lodging, a cost that results from living in a rural location far from cancer treatment centers.
This tournament is a “First, Most, Biggest” tournament, and the rules can be found on the rules page of this site. The tournament will take place on primarily private, world-class fishing beats all around Sublette County (please see our YouTube channel for some fun videos of fish taken from these waters). The tournament will consist of 2 days of fishing. The tournament begins with a MEET & GREET on the Thursday before the first day of fishing. At the meet and greet everyone will enjoy, Hor d’oeuvres, and cocktails. You will be assigned your beats, meet your guides, and arrange the details for the following days' fishing.
Teams will consist of two contestants (possible alternate, please see RULES for details). Beats will be graded for physical difficulty and technical difficulty (how hard the river is to walk-wade and get to) and fishing difficulty (casting lanes, distances, willow cover, etc.). Please keep this in mind as you build your teams. You should build your team based on having people that can fish and wade at all levels. Due to the unpredictable elements of this tournament such as unknown water conditions, weather, and the physically demanding nature of wade fishing, please be advised that it is not suitable for young children or anyone unable to handle unforeseen conditions.
