Layout 1 (Page 1)Now is the time to sign up for the 2016 Gasparilla Island Flyfishing Tournament, which will be held on Tuesday, Nov. 22, sponsored by Gasparilla Outfitters, SunTech Builders, LLC and the Boca Grande Area Chamber of Commerce.
At 9 a.m. boats will depart from the Pink Docks. The entry fee is $300 per two-angler team.
Everyone is invited to participate.
If you don’t flyfish you can still support a great cause (Boca Grande Lighthouse’s webcam project) and drop by the pre-tournament cocktail party and captain’s meeting, hosted by PJ’s Seagrille. It will be held on Monday, Nov. 21 at 6 p.m.
There will be a raffle of items donated by local businesses, great food, an open bar and an overall good time.
Tickets for the party are $35 at the door. Call Gasparilla Outfitters, (941) 964-0907 or go to for information.
