Event Details:

The KFNW Charity Fish-A-Thon Open is an annual online fishing tournament in Idaho, Oregon and Washington. Proceeds this year will be awarded to Heroes on the Water (Pacific Northwest Chapters).

Competitors will pay a $25 entry fee and those proceeds will go to the winner, minus TourneyX and PayPal fees.

In addition, KFNW asks each competitor to sign up at least one sponsor for $25 (including themselves optionally) to pledge a donation, calculated per fish, or as a lump sum.  There is a 20 fish limit in the competition, so that limits how big the the donation per fish can be.

This is an open, so no AOY points will be earned or awarded and KFNW membership is NOT required.

How it Works:
