1ONE Fly Challenge

As in "one", "single", and "lone" fly! The challenge is to catch fish using one and only one fly all afternoon. Not another fly of the same pattern, or a different size; just one lone fly. If you loose the fly, put it in a tree, an 18"er breaks it off, you snap it off due to a wind knot, snag an underwater branch, or what ever other reason (and we expect some real good ones!), the challenge is over.

Naturally you can fish another fly if your patience wears thin, but then the "catching" will not be part of the challenge. Or, you can change back to your "pre-picked" lone fly and be back in the challenge.

RULES

Equipment

  1. Angler will furnish their own fly-fishing equipment.
  2. Type of fly rod, fly reel, and fly line is left to the judgement of the individual.
  3. The use of fly floatant, lead weight, strike indicators, leaders, or other accessories will be at the discretion of the participant.
  4. No real or artificial fish attractants, such as scents, are allowed.

The lONE Fly

  1. Any conventional fly pattern (dry, wet, nymph, streamer, etc.) may be used as long as it is no larger than size #8 and is 3X or shorter in length.
  2. No lead-headed jigs or molded head jigs, Clouser Minnows, or flies with dumbbell lead eyes are allowed.
  3. All flies must be on a single barbless hook, or a hook with the barb pushed down.
  4. Angler will chose the particular fly they will use at registration.
  5. Repairs of the 1ONE fly may only be done with the use of glue or other adhesive. Any re-tying of the fly with thread or fly tying materials is prohibited. Broken hooks may be honed or filed to a usable sharpness via any sharpening tool.
  6. Only a single fly is allowed on an angler's leader. No fly droppers or fly strike indicators are allowed.

Fishing Procedure

  1. Federal and state rules and regulations governing the waters to be fished will be strictly observed.
  2. Only trout species will be counted in the challenge. No whitefish will be counted.
  3. Fishing hours are from 2pm to 6pm, local time. Confirm time of day at registration.
  4. Fishing must be done with a designated partner, determined by random draw at registration. Anglers decide where to fish should be a joint decision, or alternatively, the time should be split ½ and ½.
  5. With the permission of the angler who has the fish on the line, assistance in landing any fish to be scored is allowed.
  6. If the angler's 1ONE fly becomes caught in brush or in a snag, it may be recovered and reattached to the leader and the angler may continue fishing in the challenge.
  7. Scoring ends for the angler when his official 1ONE fly becomes irretrievably lost or changed. The angler may continue to fish for the remainder of the day, but no fish caught after the change will count in the scoring.

Scoring

  1. To be counted in the score, the release of a caught trout must be witnessed by the fishing partner. Each of these trout will have a value of 2 points.
  2. Each trout caught may be measured and the measurement recorded.
  3. Measurement and handling of the trout should be as quickly as possible. Any trout that measures ½ inch or greater is rounded to the next full inch. Each measured trout will also have a value of 2 points.
  4. 25 points will be awarded to an angler that keeps his 1ONE fly.
  5. A penalty will be assessed for any fish killed or unable to survive. Each of these fish will be measured and the scored value of that trout will be subtracted from the angler's score.
