Best of Fest Contest Fly Fest 2010

Post by JB Martin »

"Best of Fest" Fan Favorites

Hey Everybody,

Catskill Flies Fly Shop has graciously donated 3 Collins # 1 grade Dry Fly Hackle Capes to "Fly Fest 2010" :D

So, here is what we're going to do:

We are going to have a "fun" fly tying competition.

"Best of Fest"
Here's the deal:
YOU tie a fly and submit it. Sounds Simple Right?

Well, here's the catch!
YOUR Fly must be tied at Fly Fest 2010 and submitted at "Fly Fest 2010"
The earlier during "Fly Fest 2010" that you submit YOUR fly the better your chances are at winning one of the three # 1 grade Collins Dry Fly Necks.

"Why is that YOU ask?"

Simple! Every person who comes into the Museum where "Fly Fest 2010" is being held will have the opportunity to cast a vote for the Fly they like the best! The 3 winners will be based upon the voting of the "Fans". When we say everybody we mean everybody! That includes all you guys who are tying and "visitors" as well! :D
So the earlier YOUR fly is on display the better YOUR chances are at it being seen by the most people, therefore the better YOUR chances are at getting the most votes!
All Flies submitted will be tagged with a number, the tier's name will not be attached to the fly, so the voters will not know who tied the fly.
We will have a list of who each fly (that has been number tagged) was tied by.
The 3 flies that receive the most "Fan" votes will be the winners. Each one of the winning tiers will receive one of the Collins Necks.
Pretty Cool! 8-) Huh!

Okay, so here are some guidelines:
#1 YOUR fly must be a "Trout Fly", eg. Dry Fly, Wet Fly, Nymph, Emerger, or a Streamer/Bucktail. (NO Salmon, Realistic, ART or Saltwater Flies).
#2 Please, NO "Campaigning", or eliciting votes for your fly. Just let YOUR fly tell its own story! :lol:
#3 Should there be a tie for any of the top 3 spots. We will use a simple method like arm wrestling or something even dumber to "break" the tie. :o
#4 Most important "Have Fun".
#5 The competition will end at 3:00p.m. The #1 Grade Collins Necks donated by Catskill Flies will be awarded at 3:30 p.m.

If you have any questions, please feel free to post.
Also keep checking in on this topic as I may do some "tweaking" here and there as suggestions come in from YOU guys!

Thanks to Catskill Flies for their generous donation!
