10th Annual Fly Angler of the Year Competition - SAT 11/2

posted Oct 29, 2019, 3:13 PM by Michael Iris

This Saturday November 2, 2019 is the 10th annual Fly Angler of the Year competition and banquet at Shannon’s Private Waters, located on the South Branch of the Raritan River at 528 Route 513, Califon, NJ. Frank Abrusia, North Jersey Chapter Member will be representing North Jersey this year!  

The competition begins at 8 am, so come on down and cheer Frank on as he tries to coax trout to eat his files!  The competition consists of a morning round where all anglers fish against each other.  The afternoon consists of the top three contestants competing against each other.

Lunch is provided by the Raritan Inn, free to all!  It usually consists of hotdogs, hamburgers, salads, soda and water.  Dress warm as it is usually a bit chilly standing next to the river.  Toe heaters in your shoes will keep your feet a little warmer against the cool ground. 

Everyone is invited to the banquet for a fun evening out.  I will be attending, and hope to see a good turnout of North Jersey TU folks.  Cost is $65 pp.  Dinner and cash bar provided.  This is a fundraiser for the New Jersey State Council of Trout Unlimited.  Pre-registration is required, and can be accomplished at www.shannonsprivatewaters.com - choose ‘events’ from the menu, on top, then ‘register’.  The New Jersey State Council also uses this event as their Banquet and Fundraiser so there will be raffles and a 50/50.

Please come out and support Frank!  Sue Reed
