2009 FTOTY Winners

Recommended Posts


I am very excited that I am finally able to announce the winners for the 2009 FTOTY Contest! As with every year I have enjoyed my involvement in this year's event and I appreciate all of the participants that entered some flies this year. Without your support this would not be the tradition that it is today and I hope to be able to continue this again this year.


Congrats to all of the winners, hopefully you all consider this something to be proud of. You represent the very best of FTF over the past year and there are some amazing flies in this group!


The award for the 2009 FTOTY Best Overall fly goes to Dr Rock for the 2nd straight year! His beautiful freestyle salmon fly is truly amazing and I feel him being voted the best overall fly again this year is justified!


Here is the full list of overall and category winners. I hope everyone that reads this shows their appreciate to the winners and all of the participants for giving us an event that we can all enjoy.
