It is our objective to run a successful tournament tour with a simple format ,high payout, competitive entry fees. During our first year we will attract and develop media releases and plan to attract corporate sponsorship.


We will achieve these objectives by organizing our tournaments with impressive payouts to our anglers.

Discuss entry fees that are reasonable and attract elite anglers within the Ontario region and beyond.

We will seek out ways to market the tournaments and the anglers in a way that is affordable and effective. We will reach a wide range of individuals to help in the awareness of our sponsors products.
