    A Few Housekeeping Notes:

    I will send an exact address for meeting locations and beat maps closer to the start of the event.

    Please do not register unless you are coming. For a fly-fishing event, numbers are very important. Please ensure that you can make your best effort at attending if you register. 

    A few items of note:

    Holding a National Championship in Paradise Valley Montana is a very special thing that has never been done. The fishery that this event is being held on is private, and an opportunity of a lifetime. It books out over a year in advance, and to many, the opportunity to fish this water is considered the a chance of a lifetime. The cost of holding a National Championship in montana is significantly more expensive than in most other areas of the country. All efforts have been made to make this event as affordable as possible, while still producing a high quality event. I’d like to take the chance to thank the Landowners, and Brian Kimmel for making this a possibility -Tucker
