Trout World....
Trout World is one of the few places left on Earth that true strains of Trout and their habitat can still be found in the year 3000.  Due to the farsightedness of fly fishermen and conservationists, indoor
environments were built to avoid the ravages of pollution and global warming.  These facilities are strictly controlled and rather expensive, but offer the contemporary angler great opportunities to feel the strain on the end of his tippet while using time tested methods and gear.
The Artist....
I have enjoyed fly fishing for many years.  I tie my own flies, and build my own rods. In my spare time, I sometimes play around on this computer.  I also have to make a living, so I show up in front of classes at Enid High School.

Poster description:
Alfadus 5
Barren, when it was discovered in 2651, Alfadus 5 underwent a bioseed (Earth System 2 Bio) in 2702 and was scheduled for colonization in 2900. The discovery of the Seven Sisters in Belt W5-112 nullified colonization plans and resulted in Alfadus 5 being designated as the first Wilderness Park Planet. With development restricted to 1% of the land mass, tourism is the only industry. Accommodations are plentiful. However, the avid fly fisherman will probably opt to avoid the resorts, lease a rec-skim and head for the back country. In that case book well in advance.  The flora and fauna are remarkably Earth like, but beware, the Bengal tiger abounds in the temperate regions and they have no fear of mankind.  If you dismount in the field your 3000 MFL's Master Guide is programed to hover overhead (in alert mode), do not override this feature in tiger country.  As for the fish on Alfadus 5, almost all Earth species have thrived. Most sites have not been fished since the original bioseed

Fly fishing is a sport that leads any participant to a greater understanding of watershed ecosystems and our place within them.
We have sponsored
First Annual Third Millennium Fly Fishing Poster Art Contest because it offers hope that in one form or other, the sport of fly fishing will still be popular in the year 3000.
We the sponsors have enjoyed making it possible for these fine artists to display their visions of the future of fly fishing.  
Contest rules for the Second Annual Third Millennium Fly Fishing Poster Art Contest will be  the same as the first contest.  Prizes will be of equal or better value.  New contest deadline will be December 1, 2000.
We hope that the Annual Third Millennium Fly Fishing Poster Art Contests will go on for the next thousand years.
