The Lee U Anglers, the university’s fly fishing team, recently hosted the Film and Fly Shootout Tournament on Lee’s campus as a fundraiser for the team.

The day began with a cookout, allowing local Cleveland fishermen to connect with Lee students that also participate in the sport.

Following the cookout, participants competed in one of three fly casting skill levels: Beginner, for Lee students in the Beginners Fly Fishing class; Intermediate, for those who have completed the Intermediate Fly Fishing class at Lee or have three years or more of fly fishing experience; and Advanced, for those who are skilled fly fishing professionals.

The winners of the tournament were Abby Price, Beginner; Adam Ruess, Intermediate; and Noland Glen, Advanced.

Following the tournament and a quick break, participants returned at 5 p.m. to view “Film, Fly, and Foam,” a film provided by Costa, an outdoor apparel company. The showing took place in the Screening Room, located in Lee’s Communication Arts Building.

“The tournament was not only a great way for my class to apply what we’ve learned so far, but it was a much-needed, laid back event, where fly fishing lovers could slow down together, be outside, share a meal, and compete to win some great gear,” said Sara Groos, senior and Beginners Fly Fishing student.
