Back in January, we posted about Peter Kutzer and Molly Semenik’s sweep of a Denver casting competition at the International Sportsmen’s Exposition. Then, later in the month, Orvis Regional Business Manager Hutch Hutchinson won the Sacramento, California leg of the prestigious Best of the West Fly Casting Tournament.

Now we’ve got another top finisher: this time, it’s Cinda Howard, Fishing Manager of Orvis Scottsdale. You may remember Cinda from that gigantic pike she caught in Alaska last summer. She beat all comers at last weekend’s Phoenix ISE show and will now join all the other winners from the various shows at the Finals in Salt Lake City in a couple of weeks. Great job, Cinda!
