THE AMERICA CUP INTERNATIONAL FLY FISHING TOURNAMENT
The America Cup is a 5-person 16-team, catch and release, fly fishing tournament with teams from around the world, to include teams from Poland, Ireland, Hungary, Japan and Australia. It is the 3rd largest Fips-Mouche style fly fishing tournament in the world with 80 Anglers competing for 3 days. The America Cup was held in the Colorado mountain town of Vail, CO. this September. The individual 1st Place winner was Rob Kolanda from Longmont. (Most of you likely have met Rob here at Rocky Mountain Anglers, where Rob worked for years!). And the individual 2nd Place was taken by Riley Cotter from Louisville! Riley works for Umpqua Feather Merchants. Both guys are local and good friends of mine, as well as recognizable faces here! So, I am proud as hell. You my boy, Blue!
