The 2-Fly has grown from humble beginnings seven years ago to a full weekend of activities. The event began with a casual pond, bass and bluegill tournament in the afternoon, followed by a riverside cocktail party and dinner with a full program of special guests and inspiring speakers. Then the 2-Fly Tournament followed on Sunday and a closing award ceremony at the end of the event.
