CASPER, Wyo. (PRESS RELEASE) - The Wyoming Rescue Mission will host the 8th Annual Fishin’ for the Mission Fly Fishing Tournament fundraising event beginning at 7 a.m. Thursday, June 10, at Red Butte Ranch, 8550 S Bessemer Bend. A guide meet-and-greet dinner and Calcutta will be held at 5:30 p.m. Wednesday, June 9, at True River Cross Commons, 465 N Poplar St.

This year, there are 28 teams of two anglers each, and each team is randomly assigned a professional guide, courtesy of Wyoming Fly Fishing Guide Service and Crazy Rainbow Fly Fishing. Proceeds will go to care for those struggling with homelessness at Wyoming Rescue Mission.

The traveling -- and coveted -- Golden Trout Trophy will be awarded to the first-place team, with awards being presented to the top three teams with the largest fish. Other fun prizes will be awarded to the anglers who caught the smallest fish and the biggest sucker.

“Nothing like it!” Brad Hopkins, Wyoming Rescue Mission Executive Director, said. “Fishin’ for the Mission gets us doing what we love: fly fishing the mighty North Platte, all the while raising funds to restore Wyoming lives in need. This event sold out before we could advertise. We could not be more grateful!”

This year’s event is sponsored by Global Specialized Services; MPI Warehouse, Superior Self Storage & RV; TDS Construction; Wyoming Behavioral Institute; Wyoming Fly Fishing Guide Service; Brick House LLC; Casper Orthopedics; Hilltop Bank; Pro-Kote; and Williams, Porter, Day & Neville PC. Dozens of local businesses also made in-kind donations for prize packages.

Media are welcome to attend both events.
