Welcome to the 2013 Lydia Ann Fly Masters Tournament Web Site

The organization of the tournament is comprised of a partnership between Alamo Fly Fishers and Palmer Simpson

  • to create the PREMIER annual Fly Fishing and Catch and Release Tournament for the Texas Coast,
  • and to donate EVERY DOLLAR possible to the chosen beneficiary for that particular year.

The purpose of the LYDIA ANN FLY MASTERS tournament is to bring Fly Fishing anglers from all over the State of Texas, as well as other States, to compete for prizes, share in the enjoyment of fishing the flats, and have a good time; all the while never losing focus of the main reason for being there – to help support a wonderful charitable organization.
The 2013 Beneficiary will be CASTING FOR RECOVERY. Please visit the “2013 Beneficiary” page to learn more about their cause, and to make additional on-line donations.
Aransas Pass was chosen as the center for the tournament due to its mostly equidistant location to Austin, Houston, and San Antonio. It is also close to the heart of the flats that many of us love to fly fish.
The tournament is open to both Boating Anglers and Kayaking Anglers with separate divisions for each. Redfish on the fly and Catch and Release are the objectives, but there are also “Open Species” divisions for both the Boaters and Kayakers just to make things interesting. There is also a Children’s Division to encourage the tournament to be a family-oriented event.
For a more complete description of the Tournament Format and Rules please visit the “Rules & Format” page within the website for a downloadable version. A downloadable Application is also available on the “Application & Info” page.We are striving to make the tournament as attractive as we can to all anglers by having separate divisions for the Boaters and Kayakers.
We are working with numerous Sponsors to offer quality prizes for the top finishing anglers, as well as Raffle and Silent Auction Items. We encourage everyone that participates in the tournament or visits this site to support these fine and generous Sponsors.
