We’re excited for the third annual Gabe Duran Memorial Fly Fishing Tournament on the Lower Sacramento River. Gabe was a beloved part of the Northern California fly fishing industry and guide community. In his memory we are coming together again for a weekend full of friends, guides, fly fishing, beer, and festivities.

Event Date: May 31-June 2, 2019
Location: Redding, Lower Sac River
Cost: $1,500 per team of two
Included: Friday night beer & apps party, two days guided fishing on the lower Sac river, Saturday night BBQ with live music, Sunday afternoon awards ceremony with 5 prize categories, and a Gabe Duran commemorative swag bag.


As we get ready to launch our San Diego branch of Cast Hope in September 2019, under the direction of legendary guide and angler Conway Bowman, we have been lucky to be adopted as the beneficiary of the annual Carp Throwdown at Lake Henshaw in San Diego County. Conway Bowman and Al Quattrocchi have run this tournament for a few years now and it is a great event. Lake Henshaw is an amazing carp fishery where there are plentiful carp in the flats and fish will even come to the surface for dry flies. If you cant make it this year mark your calendars for 2020 as the event is usually held in late May and NOT one to be missed.
