Take some of the best saltwater anglers in Texas, mix in a few cocktails, great music and fun and you will have FINS. The Tournament did not have "humble" roots as the Founding Father and dear friend of The Ryan Gibson Foundation, Rene Karam would have nothing of it. The Tournaments first year was a huge success and we have not looked back since. Held in the beautiful flats of South Laguna Madre, Texas (South Padre Island) FINS puts the best redfish and trout anglers together to help the TRGF and its cause towards beating leukemia. Held annually typically in Late Spring / Early Summer you will not want to miss this tournament. While it is called a Tournament and it is in every way, the anglers gather for this event for healthy competiton, some bragging rights and yes, even a little money. Ultimately though, it is the passion of our particpants that want to find a cure, that drives this tournament.
