18th Annual Ausable River Two-Fly Challenge

"Couple with the myriad natural wonders of the Adirondacks, the Ausable and its productive pocket water offer the solitude and challenge no fly fisher could resist." FLY FISHERMAN MAGAZINE 18th Annual Ausable River Two-fly Fly Fishing Competition. Now a two-day event on the legendary West Branch of the Ausable River.

FRIDAY, MAY 19 AND SATURDAY, MAY 20  - In May of each year the Au Sable River Two-Fly Challenge is held on the West Branch Au Sable River in Wilmington, NY, home of Whiteface Mountain (upstate NY's Adirondacks). The event began in 2000 to get fly fishermen together, enjoy a wonderful day on the river and raise funds to protect the fishery for future generations. The Two-Fly Challenge begins on Friday morning with registration and a day of fishing. Then join us Friday evening with a "get together", fly tying demonstration, drinks and snacks. On Saturday participants spend up to 10 hours angling on the river using just two flies. It is strictly a catch-and-release experience. Saturday concludes with a nice dinner, guest speaker, award ceremony and silent raffle.
