2006 U.S. National Fly Fishing Championships in Colorado

For the first time, the U.S. national fly fishing team, which will compete in Portugal in August, will be formed from the winners of a national competition. “The U.S. has been fielding a team since 1981, but up until now the national team was chosen rather than forged from a competition. Other than the 15 members of last year’s U.S. team, anglers qualified for nationals at various regionals around the country this spring.” The event starts today in Boulder, Colorado and runs through Sunday.
