2nd Annual Cheeky Schoolie Tournament, Cape Cod, MA – May 18th, 2013

(Check out the video from last year!)

Purpose: Join Cheeky to welcome our hard working schoolie stripers to their summer vacation home. This is a fun, competitive tournament open to all skill levels. The Cheeky Schoolie Tournament is a low barrier to entry, grassroots tournament designed to encourage the interest and growth of saltwater fly fishing. True grassroots style – no engines, paddles or flippers.

When: Saturday, May 18th, 2013

Where: The shores of Cape Cod, Massachusetts

Entry Fee: $40 per fly angler.

Anglers: In 2012, the tournament was limited to 20 teams and it sold out fast. This year, we’re raising it to the first 25 two-person teams, so submit your team ASAP. If you want to fish, but need a partner, send us an email at, and we’ll do our best to match you up

Sponsors: Thank you to all of this year's generous tournament sponsors. It's going to be one awesome raffle
