The tournament includes at least four hours of fly-fishing time; the group will be split into two and will each fish one of two trophy ponds to see who can catch the most fish in two hours. Then, the groups will switch ponds for another two hours. At the end of the four hours, the eight fishermen that caught the most fish will advance to a third round for another two hours to again battle for quantity of fish caught. At this time, eliminated fisherman can buy in to keep fishing for $100. The final round will consist of the top four quantity winners, who will compete for the largest catch.
