The 10th annual Cheeky Schoolie Tournament is a low barrier to entry, grass roots style event designed to encourage the interest and growth of saltwater fly fishing and to welcome our hard working schoolie stripers to their summer vacation home on Cape Cod, MA. The 2021 Tournament will mark the 10th year for the annual event, which has become the world's largest fly fishing tournament.


The Cheeky Schoolie Tournament is about the fish. This is a Catch and Release only tournament, and proper fish handling during a release is of paramount importance. Cheeky Fishing partners with KeepEmWet Fishing to provide an opportunity for everyone to learn more about best practices for catching and releasing fish. We’re excited to expand on this partnership in 2021.

In addition, it was our great privilege to donate $15,610 from last year’s event to Stripers Forever, a nonprofit dedicated to striped bass conservation. We’re hoping to go even bigger this coming year! 


  • Teams of two, must stay together
  • Shore/wade fly fishing only. No boats, motors, paddles, flippers, swimming, etc. Two feet on the ground!
