Coupled with the myriad natural wonders of the Adirondacks, the Ausable and its productive pocket water offer the solitude and challenge no fly fisher could resist.

In May of each year the Au Sable River Two-Fly Challenge is held on the West Branch Au Sable River in Wilmington, NY, home of Whiteface Mountain (upstate NY's Adirondack's).
The event began in 2000 to get fly fishermen together, enjoy a wonderful day on the river and raise funds to protect the fishery for future generations.
The Two-Fly challenge begins on a Friday Morning with registration and a day of fishing. Then join us Friday evening with a "get together" fly tying demonstration, drinks and snacks. Saturday, participants spend up to 10 hours angling on the river using just two flies.
It is strictly a catch-and-release experience. Saturday concludes with a nice dinner, guest speaker, award ceremony and silent raffle.
Hear from our contestants:
"I would like to congratulate you on a stellar 2 Fly contest again this year. The weather could have been a bit better, but it is always challenging on the Ausable." CH
"Thank you for all your efforts on behalf of the two-fly event. I have had a terrific time participating in the contest and very much enjoy the concluding banquet! Hopefully, the 2-Fly will go on for many years."CN
"Thank you very much and will be there next year..." DT
