The 2017 Fly and Field Casting Contest will feature accuracy and distance components and reward casters who can control line and fly in both disciplines. More specific rules are listed below, but the basic game has five elements.
Accuracy: Competitors will attempt to score as many points as possible by casting the fly three times at each of three targets. The concentric rings of the targets will have increasing values as the targets decrease in size. Much like a dart board.
Distance: The caster will have three casts to reach the longest distance, rounded to the nearest foot. The distance of each cast will be multiplied by 10 to arrive at a distance points score. The sum of all three distance casts will create the distance score.
Bonus: Casters will have a single cast at an upright target for additional points.
Final Score: will be the sum of Accuracy, Distance and Bonus casts.
Time Limit: All accuracy, distance and bonus casts must be completed within the 2.5 minute (150 second) time limit.
