October Cutthroat Classic 2012

Coming soon in October 2012 will be the 3rd annual October Cutthroat Classic fly fishing tournament on the Truckee River in Reno, NV. It's gonna be another amazing event if it's anything like the last two years.

Last year's competition was well worth the wait. 13 two man teams on one of the country's best trout rivers. Competition was stiff! We saw teams from all over the country: pros, amateurs, first timers, locals, and even a high school team from Sparks.  There was a lot of beer and whiskey drinkin', some broken rods, a few people in the drink, a couple bee attacks, some HUGE fish in the hog troughs, some cutts, some whiteys, lots of bows, some clowny browns, and even some wild horses. Turns out that you don't have to be a local or a pro to win this bad boy as an amateur team from Oregon took home the W never having fished the Truckee before that tournament. If you like to fish and enjoy some good times with some good people this is where it's at!

Here's another vid from Nate Lishman and Waterlogged Productions with clips from last year's tourney. Enjoy!
