The Salty Fly 2012, Super Bowl of Fly fishing weekend has come to a closed. 65 teams competing the gold and support from some of the biggest players in the game of Fly fishing it was a blow out fly fishing event.
Despite the not so favorable weather forecast every single team showed up for the 6am check in that morning. The party and live broadcast ensued at 3pm at Momma Iguana for drinks and libations. The Hells bay title sponsorship took this 2nd annual event over the top this year. We had so many people there and the parking was so congested Winn Dixie for the fist time complained that they ran out of parking for the their customers.
The 3 day event was a huge success and hope many of you can join us next year.
We have many more photos and videos to share but right for now I will just give you the results because I have to get some sleep.
