The Casting for Hope Team is super excited to announce the 1st Casting for Hope Fall Open at Betsy's Old Country Store on November 11, 2017.  All participants will receive a complimentary t-shirt, lunch, and any other swag that the Casting for Hope team can gather before the event. Teams will be limited to the first 16 two-man teams to register.  We are extremely excited to be partnering with Betsy's Old Country Store on Wilson Creek for the event to basecamp for the morning, lunch, and awards!

******This is SUPER important:  Only one member from each team should register.  This will allow us to launch the two-man team format for this event.  Again, only one member from each team should register*********

Following registering your team, please send an e-mail to John Zimmerman at with your teammate's name, t-shirt size, and e-mail address.  

Teams will fish four, one-and-a-half-hour sessions.  This will be a volunteer-controlled event.

Entry Fees are $100 per team, are tax deductible to the full extent of the law and will aid Casting for Hope's financial assitance programming for women and families battling a gynecologic cancer.  We are working for a prize money sponsor.  If one is found, we will announce that at the time of sponsorship.  

You can send your entry fee via PayPal to  If you’d like to pay by check or cash, please contact us at

Fips Mouche scoring rules will determine final placings in the event.  But Fips fishing rules will be modified to allow for strike indicators, split shot, and tying off the bend of hooks.  Barbless/debarbed hooks will be enforced.
