Recent Graduate, Experienced Journalist and Competitive Fly Fisherman

Colorado for the America Cup

I was selected to be the North Carolina Fly Fishing Team captain for the 2010 America Cup of Fly Fishing in Frisco, Colorado. The North Carolina Fly Fishing Team sent 5 anglers and the captain. I was amazed with how dry Colorado climate was. The water conditions were low which made the fishing a bit tougher than normal. The fish were feeding on dry flies which made the fishing a little bit different than your standard competition fishing. Our team tied the Polish, this years world champions and placed 6th in the tournament. I met lots of influential fly fisherman from across the world including former individual world champion, Michael Drinnan and Team USA standouts Lance Egan, Devin Olsen and Bret Bishop.  I’d like to say a special thank you to Mountain Khaki’s, Simms Fishing, Riverbum Flies, Hills Discount Flies and Rio Products for making this trip a success. Here are some photos from my trip.
