To kick off the Fly Fishing Film Tour going virtual on August 27th, they teamed up with Pig Farm Ink to throw a new Online Iron Fly Challenge. Similar to the previous challenge in April, there will be a theme.
The theme of this challenge will be GO OUTSIDE. After you watch the Virtual 2020 F3T go outside and do something fun. Go fly fishing, hiking, biking, or take their kids outside for a walk around the neighborhood or explore the backyard. While you’re out having fun, gather materials for 2 flies. 1 fly made of all-natural material (grass, sticks, fur, whatever) and the other from any trash you pick up.
Just like all Pig Farm Ink challenges, it is OPEN TO ALL experience levels. Even if you have never tied a fly, they want you to participate. For real, your experience level doesn’t mean JACK. Jay Johnson and a few other Pig Farmers will be judging all of the flies that are submitted via hashtag #OnlineIronFly on Instagram, and to the Pig Farm Ink Facebook page.
The sponsors for this challenge are the Fly Fishing Film Tour, Costa, Simms, Yeti, and Trout Unlimited. The due date for all submissions is at Midnight PST on 09/07/2020. For more details check out the poster below.
