Think you've got what it takes to join the best anglers on the planet is a fishing tournament meets scavenger hunt, now is your chance. Even if you do, OR if even if you don't, care about fishing tournaments, the 25 on the Fly is a very unique fly fishing event. OnWater is proud to be a sponsor for another year of this exciting multi-species fishing event. With two events each year, the 25 on the Fly is a great way to fish, have fun, challenge yourself, and doing it for a good cause.

About 25 on the Fly

One day at Anglers All Fly Shop near Denver, Colorado a chat about angling opportunities during spring runoff season popped off over a few cold ones during happy hour. As the conversation evolved, the staff started dreaming up the potential for a multi-species fly fishing only tournament. They dreamed of an event that would bring much needed shine to some underrated fish in Colorado such as bass, carp and the lesser known trout species. In a country where largemouth bass fishing is king these shop staff aimed to immortalize fly fishing and show the conventional world that flies can fool bass, as well as other species effectively.

So, in the Spring of 2016  Anglers All hosted the first species focused fly fishing tournament and every year the event has grown in reach and popularity. Fast forward to today and the crew behind the popular Mile High 25 has branched out into a series of events across the country!

If you needed even more of a reason to join this year’s fly fishing tournament meets scavenger hunt, each registration includes a donation to @denvertroutunlimited to benefit Denver’s South Platte!
