The Kayak Fishing Idaho Championship tourney at Swan Falls and Angler of the Year Celebration & Awards are October 21, 2017! The KFI season has gone around and come back to where the first event was.
The celebration begins at 5:30 PM MST on October 21, 2017 after the AOY tourney at Idaho River Sports. There will be food, door prizes and you can demo that boat you have been wanting to get! All KFI members, friends and family are invited to come on out to see who will be crowned with the 2017 Championship and take home a loaded up Wilderness Systems Fishing Kayaks ATAK 120 from Idaho River Sports!
The boat will come with a Power-Pole Total Boat Control Micro Anchor, an Anchor Wizard, a PFD and tackle bag from NRS Fishing, a paddle from Idaho River Sports, and other items from our great sponsors.
KFI Members please RSVP or if you would like an invitation call 208-336-4844 today. Bring the family and join in Idaho first ever AOY celebration!
KFI Fishing Trail Tourney Participation
To participate you must be a current KFI member to fish the KFI events. The only exception will be the KBF event that will be held the same day as the KFI event.
Anglers attending the KBF event will have the opportunity to fish both events if they choose. Be sure to check out the links at the end of this article for important information about rules.
KFI Fishing Trail Tourney Points
Top 25% of points finishers will get to fish in the AOY Invitational and there will be special prizes and cash awards for the AOY event. Those will be updated throughout the season. AOY Standings at the end of the year will also be determined by the best 5 out of 8 events. What that means is if you can't make an event or have a bad event, the points get scratched at the end of the year for 3 events.
We here at Idaho River Sports are stoked to be the Angler of the Year title sponsor and look forward to awarding a new, completed outfitted Wilderness Systems A.T.A.K. fishing kayak valued at $2,000+ to the winner!
KFI Fishing Trail Tourney Entry Fees
Entry fees for the KFI events are $30 with $7.50 being held from each entry from the events to go toward the Angler of the Year (AOY) invitational championship payout which will not have an entry fee. When registering through the Kayak Fishing Idaho online store you are also assessed a $1.05 charge to cover processing fees. Registering online for each event is preferred. Prize totals are based on the number of entries received for each event.
