The first Waynesboro Fly Competition was a great success, raising over $4000 for Shenandoah Valley Trout Unlimited and raising the profile of Waynesboro, VA as a premier fly fishing destination.  The Second Annual Waynesboro Fly Fishing Tournament promises to be even better!  The Tournament is a fly fishing tournament for teams of 2 anglers.  Each contestant competes using a single fly that follows tournament guidelines.  Participants will fish a 3 hour session on an assigned beat with a single fly of their choosing.  There will be an optional fly change at 1 1/2 hours into each session (that’s the ‘+’).  Registration for the tournament includes premiums with our logo, continental breakfast, pizza lunch and a ticket to our event dinner.  The winning team will receive a prize-package worth over $1000.

Tournament participants will be strictly limited to only 8 teams.  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.  Single registrants will be paired with a partner angler, if possible. Registrants will be guaranteed a place only with full payment of fees by March 14, 2015.  

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

Sponsorships, at levels ranging from $50 and up, are available to businesses and individuals who would like to support the Waynesboro 1+ Fly.  Sponsors will be featured at the event and in our advertising.

Trophy Stocking: In conjunction with the event we have added hundreds of additional 14”-20” rainbow trout to VDGIF stockings of the South River Delayed Harvest area.

Funds raised will be used for additional stocking of the South River and the educational and conservation programs of Shenandoah Valley Trout Unlimited, including Trout in the Classroom.

Organizers: The Waynesboro 1+ Fly is organized by Shenandoah Valley Trout Unlimited and the South River Fly Shop.
