So I guess tonight is the NCAA championship game and two teams who I don’t give a damn about are playing a game I’ve previously deemed TV kryptonite. 

The only March Madness I was following was the brackets going on over at Cheeky Fly Fishing.

Well they came to a disappointing conclusion today from a tournament full of upsets. I had Tarpon, Steelhead, Atlantic Salmon, and Permit in the Final four with the King of Fish, Atlantic Salmon beating out Permit at the buzzer.

Bonefish beats Permit?!? Rainbow Trout beats Atlantic Salmon?!? And then the final?!? What a bunch of trout weenies. 

You mean to tell me that this tired old, two pound, pellet fed stocker

beats the grey ghost?

C’mon Son! I don’t think so.

March Madness

I could give two shits about basketball. But who doesn’t like a little gambling?

Here’s a novel concept for a few worthy causes; an up start fly fishing company, Cheeky, is doing a tournament bracket for fly fishing and donations go to three organizations doing great work. 

Stripers Forever (member, obviously)

Working towards getting gamefish status for striped bass

Casting for Recovery

Breast cancer support group using fly fishing to heal sufferers both mentally and physically

and Bonefish & Tarpon Trust

With goal to protect and enhance bonefish, tarpon, and permit by gaining a better understanding of their biology and ecology.

I think the *grand prize, if you win all your win all your brackets, is that Cheeky takes you fishing for what ever fish wins, all expenses paid. So vote early and often. Donate too.

*(not actually the grand prize)
