Maine Iron Fly Competition 2014: Results
I’d like to thank all the participants and spectators for making Maine’s First ever Iron Fly Competition a success! The judges were impressed by the thought, skill, and creativity that went into all the flies tied on Saturday.
A big thanks goes to Selene’s Fly Shop Brunswick Maine for organizational support, sponsorship, and generous prize donations! If you have not visited her shop, make it happen. Another big thanks to Fly Fishing in Maine, and Dan Tarkinson for securing the venue for us, and allowing us to trash it before the film tour! I hope everyone in attendance enjoyed the experience and will join us for the next Iron Fly…this was just the beginning.
For those of you who may not have seen the results announcement, here it is:
1st Prize winner of the Echo Fly Rod (courtesy of Selene’s Fly Shop) for most creative fly went to Peter Dransfield!
3rd Place winner of of the Selenes Fly Shop gift Card for Fishiest Fly went to Rick Elsaesser!
We did have two runner up prizes for Aaron Lockwood, and Alan Yuodsnukis, who were not present during the announcement.
We also awarded prizes three promising young fly tyers: Luke, Philip, and Hunter!
Everyone won on Saturday! As we raised $230 donated to FFIM for Fisheries Conservation projects in Maine!
