The 2015, and 4th rendidtion Bass 1fly (B1F) is in the books. First, let’s take a moment to remember those with their names already etched on the back of the Duke & Lily Cup:
2012 – Jeff Cole
2013 – Dan Moser
2014 – Joe Donati
This year the angler group doubled in size, going from 9 to 18. This meant that we’d have to split up into 2 different stretches of river – 3 boats/9 anglers in 2 beats. The competition was close for quite sometime – but after about the 1/2 way mark became a 2 horse race between to guys in the same boat.
Drew Peklo ended the event with 12 smallmouth landed and the next closest angler was Erich Gross with 8. Erich manages the Grand Rapids Nomad Anglers fly shop (NOMAD’S Website) and Drew mans the counter there from time to time as well. You might want to shoot them an email, or better yet stop into the shop and ask them both what they’re eating for breakfast before they fish!
