This year's event is expected to bring in 50 teams to the site (100 anglers total), all vying for trophies given to the top three teams in the tournament.

Team Bass-n-Fly will be running the event in its entirety. The team is one of the most decorated in the sport of bass fly fishing, but what sets them apart is their strong commitment to the angling community.

The UV BuffÂ® protects against 95-percent of UV rays. With its CoolmaxÂ® Extreme fabric, sweat evaporates quickly and allows moisture to pass through the fabric. As a result, any outdoor activity can be achieved with ease and comfort, and the user will be left feeling dry and cool during mid-day and warm while out in the early morning.
BuffÂ® continues to produce the highest quality multifunctional headwear on the market. The company has just released its new premium-quality line of Pro-Series Gloves designed specifically for fishermen. The new Angler Gloves and Fighting Work Gloves are crafted to enhance dexterity, grip and offer the highest degree of UV protection (UPF 50+), providing anglers with a performance advantage literally in the palm of their hands.
