Catch o’ the day

Sayward draws more than 120 in annual Tour de Rock benefit fishing derby

For the first time in the six years of the Tour de Rock Fishing Derby in Sayward, a clean sweep of the leader board was posted by Bill Prior (at left) Sunday. His catch of a 22.2-pound spring, a 47.5-pound halibut and 22.6-pound ling cod were tops in each category and earned him three picks of prizes at the derby. The benefit drew 116 adults after 12 kids fished in the Kids’ Derby Saturday.

All money raised will be donated to the Tour de Rock riders, who will arrive in Sayward Sept. 22. Last year Sayward raised about $14,000 with the fishing derby and its annual Tour de Rock golf tournament.
