Hi Everyone, Hope to see you at our annual Big Gun Shootout on 17 November. We need score keepers as well as participants. This year you may use your own 8 weight rod for the final shootout. We are trying to see if anyone can break the record cast of 138 ft 6 inches. Please try to sign up on the Eventbrite link below, so we can get a good count for lunch. https://www.eventbrite.com/e/big-gun-shootout-registration-71292912019?aff=ebdssbdestsearch
See our Facebook page, TBFFC.com for more details on the event. thanks. If you have never participated, this is much more than a long distance casting contest, it's a lot of accuracy casting too.

Experts and beginners alike are invited to test their fly casting skills at the Tampa Bay Fly Fishing Club’s annual “Big Gun Shoot-Out” casting competition! Individuals and teams of 3 are welcome! Plaques will be awarded for highest scoring individual, highest scoring teams, and the “Big Gun,” the overall distance casting champion.
Contestants will participate in competition stations that mimic the challenges of fly fishing, such as casting
under the mangroves, into a cup of water, or through a hoop suspended a few feet off the ground. Come out
and give it a try – you’ll be hooked!
The competition will run from 9 am - 12 pm. There is NO entry fee, and lunch will be provided to all contestants. .
