Dutch John, UT—One fly. One full day of flyfishing. One great cause. The 2016 Green River Single Fly tourney takes place Aug. 25-26 on Green below Flaming Gorge Dam. Now in its 8th year, the event brings teams together from across the West to face off against the river’s biggest trout, while raising funds for the Green and its watershed.
“Plans are sailing along for 2016 Single Fly. We have a few team spots still available, but the field is filling fast. We are offering a chance for the TU chapters around Utah to benefit their conservation work through items auctioned off at this event as well, but the main purpose of the single fly is to generate funds to be primarily used for issues on Green River and its tributaries. One fly, dont snap it!”
