The Flin Flon Rotary Club is holding their second Flinty Ice Fishing Derby Sunday. Rotarian Glen Smith says there’s lots of ice and lots of prizes. He says they’ve taken last year’s prize list and probably added another 5 to 7 thousand dollars to it. He says first prize remains the same at 21 thousand dollars cash, second prize remains the same with a Lund boat, a 50 horse Merc and trailer and a quad for third prize. He adds other prizes are up, they’ve got the Calm Air flight fro anywhere Calm Air flies for two people and they now have 38 prizes with the last prize 500 dollars.
Their tagged fish is worth 25 thousand dollars. Tickets are available online at www.flintyfishderby.com or at Kleen All or you can purchase one at the derby. Fishing starts at 11 until 2 at Sally’s Beach at Bakers Narrows with around one thousand holes drilled.
The event is part of a great ice fishing weekend as it follows the Bill Bannock Derby being held in The Pas Saturday.
