Andy Mill Wins 2005 Gold Cup Fly Tournament
Andy Mill was the winner of the Gold Cup tarpon tournament in the Florida Keys this year. He was guided by Tim Hoover. That makes 5 Gold Cup victories for Andy. As in most other events that happened in June in the Keys this year, anglers had to battle very challenging weather conditions — lots of rain and wind — and there were relatively few fish caught. Only 7 “weight fish” were landed by 21 anglers. Here are the details (unofficial):
First Place: Mill and Hoover with 3 weight fish.
1st Runner Up: Neil Hopkins with Kenny Collete with 2 weight fish(they also landed the largest fish at 138 pounds)
2nd Runner Up: Tom Siska with guide Glen Flutie with 1 fish
