The 28th Martha’s Vineyard Rod & Gun Club Fly Rod Striped Bass Catch and Release Tournament
Longtime participants agree that the one-night team shore contest fosters the best qualities of the sport of fly fishing. One unique aspect is that irrespective of fishing success fishermen present at the Sunday morning awards ceremony have a chance to win one of many great prizes in a random drawing of entry blanks. Plaques are handed out in one of three categories: the total number of fish of any size length caught and released by a team (Roberto Germani Trophy); the largest fish (length and girth) released by a member of a team (Sonny and Joey Beaulieu Trophy); and the most fish caught and released by a team in which members may not change flies (Arnold Spofford Trophy).
Fishing begins at 7 p.m. Saturday, June 8 and ends at 2 a.m. Sunday, June 9. The awards ceremony begins at 9:30 a.m. Sunday, June 9.
The tournament headquarters and breakfast is located at the Edgartown School.
Saturday, June 8 at 7:00pm to 2:00am
