- The Caddis Cup - This is a special division of the one fly where any philanthropic organization can enter teams of 2 for $200.00 per team. This includes groups like Trout Unlimited, The FFF, The MFFC as well as organizations like the Fly Girls and the Field and Stream Team. Designed as a way to promote some local competition amongst these organizations, the winners will take home half of all the Caddis Cup team entry fees for the organization they represent as well as the coveted Caddis Cup.
- Priority Start Times - This year in addition to the entry fee, teams are encouraged raise additional donations through friends, family and corporate sponsorships. To help facilitate this request teams are encouraged to set up their own website through the link found above. The 3 teams who raise the most donations will be rewarded through priority start times and their choice of water. Anyone who has fished this event in the past knows how big of an advantage that can be.
- The "Buy a Fly" - get out of jail free card. Prior to the event each participant will have the option to purchase the rights to use a second fly should the first become lost or unusable. Once the event begins, the cost to buy these rights will double. As some of our most experienced anglers will tell you, it really stinks to lose your fly in the first 5 minutes of the event and not have the rest of your fish qualify for the remainder of the day.
- “Buy an Inch” – Lastly teams will have the option to purchase up to 5 inches of fish prior to the competition during the registration period. This will be tacked on the teams total at the end of the competition and be scored accordingly. As this competition usually comes down to 1 fish separating the first place team from the rest of the group, this could make the difference between going home with and without bragging rights.
