The 5 Rivers Rally and Rendezvous:
The 5 Rivers Rally is an annual gathering of 5 Rivers Clubs on the east coast, and the 5 Rivers Rendezvous is the sister event held in the rocky mountains.
At the 2015 5 Rivers Rally, 200 students from 20 colleges/universities descended on Graves Mountain Lodge in Syria, VA. Students participated in a variety of events, including a Pig Farm Ink “Iron Fly” fly tying challenge and “Get Trashed” Stream clean up. The event was featured in The Drake Magazine, Stonefly Magazine (the official magazine of the Fly Fishing Film Tour or F3T), and TROUT, the official magazine of Trout Unlimited.
The sister event to the east coast Rally, the 5 Rivers Rendezvous was held on the Upper Frying Pan River in Meredith, Colorado in April 2016. This event hosted 65 students from 12 universities across the west. Students participated in several events including a premiere of the 2016 F3T, a “photo hunt” competition, and a Pig Farm Ink “Iron Fly”. The event was featured on the Flymen Fishing Company Blog (that was shared by Trout Unlimited, Post Fly Box, Loon Outdoors, and over 500 other people) and will be featured in the fall 2016 issue of American Angler Magazine.
