Following the picnic at Green Lake on May 31st, everyone watched the casting competition. Marcos Rico was named the Alaska Region Casting Champion. Congratulations Marcos! He won an all expense paid trip to Boise, ID to attend the Fly Fishers International Fair in August where he will compete against fifteen other regional champions. The runners up included Rick Knight, Sean O’Brien, and David Widby respectively. Congratulations to all as you continue to improve and refine your fly casting.
The Casting Competition was made possible by a grant from the Bob Woodruff Foundation (BWF). BWF leverages its expertise and collaborative network to find, fund and shape innovative programs that help our impacted veterans, service members and their families thrive. Receiving a grant from BWF is an honor that recognizes the dedication, focus and effectiveness of our staff, volunteers and supporters.
