The 13th annual Islamorada Invitational Sailfly has been set for January 9 and 10, 2013. The all-release sailfish fly tournament utilizes 16-pound class tippet and points are scored on a scale of 50-150 based on released fish, “billed” fish and fly retrieval. Invitations to previous participants will be sent out in August. Interested anglers can contact Florida Keys Outfitters for more information.
The 2012 edition of the tournament was won by anglers Al McLeod and Bob Lodge, captained by Charlie Scoble. It was McLeod and Lodge’s second victory and Scoble’s fourth.
