We have had a rules change. This year we will give three awards in 4 categories. The categories will be:
- Longest Bass,
- Longest Sunfish,
- Longest Other Fish,
- Most Fish Caught.
This year’s Bud Priddy One Fly Tournament should be much like last year’s. Fishing will be at one or all of the road crossing on the Nueces near Camp Wood. There will be great prizes for longest bass, longest perch (sunfish), longest other fish, and most fish. There will also be door prizes and raffle/auction prizes. The Nueces Country Smokehouse will again cater the Saturday night awards banquet at the Big Oak River Camp pavilion. The Texas Women Fly Fishers will participate again this year and have their business meeting, box dinner on Friday night at the pavilion. Their primary speaker will be Hill Country Fishing Guide Marcus Rodriguez from Living Waters Fly Fishing. Please bring a food dish to share. Get more information and preregister for meal and t-shirt at http://alamoflyfishers.com/bud-priddy-2017/ . You will need to make your own reservations for lodging at Big Oak River Camp.
Fish the day away in the Hill Country , for bass, bluegill and other native species, all the while enjoying a peaceful float down the tranquil waters of the San Marcos River.

Because you are already promoting the outing as “bring the family” my vote is to just add the Women’s component to it … “Special casting and fishing instruction for Women”.
I think of it as a build up to the Women’s Outing (no stinky boys allowed). 😉
