This isn’t your typical fishing tournament. This is a movement towards something far greater. The University of Montana now includes a Bachelor of Art in Creative Writing, aside from hosting the best and most in-demand program for writing outdoors literature in the country. Proceeds from this tournament and all related events will be going directly into supporting the faculty and staff of UMT, to make the dreams of many creative writers come alive.
