Aptly named Fisher wins flyfishing qualifier
ESPN Outdoors Communications — April 18, 2002

fly fishing finalists
Earning a trip to the 2002 Great Outdoor Games were, from left to right, Andy Fisher, Dustin Jacobson, Michael Hatfield and Nathan Rayl.
Following are the results of a Great Outdoor Games flyfishing qualifier held April 13-14 at Johnson County, Wyo.

Lori Ann Murphy of of Victor, Idaho won the casting competition with 600 points, and Dustin Jacobson of Cheyenne, Wyo., finished the casting competition with no points.

That might have cost Jacobson the overall title, however, since he tied Andy Fisher of Cody, Wyo., in the final with a catch 17 inches long and 8 inches in girth, but Fisher got the top prize because ties were settled by points from the casting competition.
