BEST CATCH 2020
BEST CATCH 2020 is a yearbook celebrating the most iconic fishing tournaments in the Americas. The book explores the unique culture of each tournament, spotlights faces and places in fishing, and celebrates tournament victors. From the tropical waters where blue marlins roam, to the frigid ice holes where sturgeon swim, and even to the reeds and rocks where largemouth lurk, BEST CATCH 2020 salutes the tournaments, the champions, and the sport you love.
Relive the action. Recall the friendships. Vicariously relocate yourself to all the tournaments you missed this year through stunning photography, fascinating stories, and spotlights on some of the best competitors in fishing.
“I’m passionate about promoting the sport. But I’m also curious. I can’t host or attend every single tournament. There are still places I want to see, people I want to meet, and fish I want to catch. Together, these three things made me wonder if there’s a way we all could share our fish stories together.”
~ Captain Robert “Fly” Navarro
BEST CATCH 2020 is a stunning, never-before-seen memorabilia book that allows you to share your passion with family and friends.
The book features original commissioned artwork from acclaimed marine artist Carey Chen, stories from champions in the industry, and photos of iconic places, catches, and cultures. This hefty, premiere-quality coffee table yearbook is a work of art in itself—an heirloom for those who competed, a goal for those who dream to compete, and a centerpiece of discussion for anyone who sees it.
“Nothing has ever captured our sport like BEST CATCH 2020. This thing is beautiful. As a competitor, I’m simply mesmerized by this book. It makes me want to travel and experience the sport in new and exciting places.”
~ Carl Allen, Owner - Walkers Cay
Each and every year the fish tales grow bigger, the competition intensifies, and the bonds of fishing fanatics grow deeper.
Ask any competitor why they join a competition and they won’t be shy about their answer: to win. But then ask any competitor to tell stories about their
favorite fishing tournaments, and you’ll uncover something much more sentimental than money and pride—it’s camaraderie, love of the sport, and the simple thrill of wondering whether the best catch will make you a champion.
“Competitive fishing tournaments are big part of our sport’s DNA. Chronicling this important part of recreational fishing is important and Fly Navarro has done a great job in capturing tournament fishing in this new book.”
~ Jason Schratwieser, President - International Game Fish Association

Captain Robert “Fly” Navarro
Fly’s huge personality and respect for the sport have built him a social media empire.
To simply give Captain Robert "Fly" Navarro the title of “Fisherman” would be an understatement. Fishing is Fly’s job, hobby, passion and identity. However, lots of people in the fishing world could say the same thing. What makes Fly different? Well, he’s all personality—and that has given him a reputation of being one of the most networked people in the fishing community around the globe.
“Fostering the future of fishing enthusiasts is why I created BEST CATCH 2020."
