This year we’re excited to announce a few extra sponsors to the Comp and would personally like to welcome Spotters, Xplorer Fly Fishing, YETI and our new product partners, Scientific Fly! Thank you for your contributions towards this fun initiative that always sparks great interest and creativity from the fly fishing community (or those who simply want to pull some fluff together).
If you have not yet entered your fly, it’s still not too late to get your tied fluff into us! Simply head on over to the Tackle Safari 2017 Fly Tying Competition page to read all about the prizes on offer this year, fly tying categories for both Saltwater flies and/or freshwater flies and easy competition rules. As of 26 Sept 2017 we’ve had 20 entries so far which means there is still plenty of opportunity to get your fly into the mix and WIN!
A big thanks to those contestants who got in early and have already entered. It never ceases to amaze the team just how talented and ingenious the entries are from beginner fly tyers right through to advanced. This year we’ve seen fly tying contestants put a lot more effort into fly material descriptions, target species on fly and in some cases, best methods to retrieve their hand tied fly to fool their intended target fish. Super effort, thanks for taking the time with your submissions which I am sure will go a long way with the judges.
Remember, the competition ends midnight on the 12th October 2017, so if you’re thinking about entering, get fly tying! Read more here.
