Waynesboro, VA, May 15, 2015:  The Waynesboro Fly Tournament is a fly fishing tournament for teams of 2 anglers.  The tournament will be limited to only 8 teams.  Each contestant competes using four flies for the entire competition.  Participants will fish two 3-hour sessions on an assigned beat in the Upper South River Special Regulation Area.  Registration for the tournament includes premiums with our logo and a ticket to our event dinner.  The winning team will receive a prize-package worth over $1000.  

Tournament participants may register by mail or call Tommy Lawhorne at 540-649-1915.  Registration forms are available in many local and regional fly shops, or anglers can send name, telephone # and email along with $200 / individual or $400/ team to the South River Fly Shop, 323 W Main St, Waynesboro, VA 22980.  Single registrants will be paired with a partner angler, if possible.

Spectators may watch the tournament action for free.  They may also attend the event dinner for $25/ person and bid on silent auction items.

Funds raised from entry fees, sponsorships, dinner tickets and items auctioned at the event dinner will be used for additional stocking of the South River, Trout in the Classroom and habitat improvement on the South River.  Our two previous tournaments together raised over $7000.
