BBBS of Big Sky Country is pivoting in a new fundraising direction that we think will reflect the character of our our Livingston Community by creating a brand new event, The Big One: A Two-Fly Challenge. This event will allow guests and volunteer guides to fish the famed rivers surrounding Park and Gallatin counties. The first night will include a meet and greet barbeque. Day two will consist of a day fishing on the rivers followed by a Perfect Pairings celebration dinner at the historic Livingston depot. 

Day One - Meet & Greet BBQ 

When:     

4-7pm on Sunday, August 8th 

Where: 

The Livingston Depot

Description: 

This BBQ will be a very casual meet and greet between the guides and participants. Buffet style dinner and drinks will be provided for all participants. There will be live music from the Canoe Dealers and a first look at the two day silent auction. During the evening we will explain the rules, prizes, fishing timeline, etc. for everyone participating.  We will have a drawing to see who gets partnered with each guide, wish everyone good luck and hand out swag/welcome packets for all participants.

Day Two - Two-Fly Challenge 

When:8am - 5pm on Monday, August 9th

Each group will be randomly assigned a guide, launch location and time at the BBQ on Sunday night. 

Description: 

There will be 20-25 boats and guides participating in this first time event. This includes two anglers and one guide per boat. BBBS will provide coffee and bagels in the moring and packed lunches on the river.  Contestants will only use 2 flies throughout the day of fishing but ‘mulligan’ flies will be available for purchase. $100 an extra fly. There will be no actual reporting on fish but people are allowed to take pictures and compare notes afterwards.  We will be coming up with a rules sheet and a welcome packet so we are in accordance to all FWP regulations.
