The 2021 Tag & Release Ceremony presented by King Sailfish Mounts, Dekit, Viking Service Center, Costa Sunglasses and Floy Tag is virtual this year! It will be held via Facebook Live on February 12th at 6 pm EST. To tune in, simply “like” our Facebook page, you will be notified on Facebook when we go live! Our livestream will celebrate the winners of the TBF Tag & Release Awards across the globe and include fun trivia questions and a special Ceremony cocktail recipe to enjoy during the event!

To get you excited for the stream, we have fun things planned for the two weeks prior to the event! From January 29th to February 5th, we will run our online raffle. During this time, for every $20 you spend at shop.billfish.org, you will receive one entry into the raffle! The winner will be announced during the Virtual Ceremony livestream on February 12th and receive an awesome prize package consisting of a YETI Hopper M30, a Helly Hansen x TBF jacket, and a pair of Costa Broadbill glasses!

Starting on February 5th and running until February 12th until 9 pm EST, we will host a fundraising auction! To participate, go to charityauction.bid/TBFAwards2021 and register. Then, when the auction opens on February 5th, begin bidding! We have amazing items starting at half their retail value, including Costa sunglasses, Garmin electronics, YETI coolers, fishing gear, and more! The auction wraps up at 9 pm EST on the 12th, giving you plenty of time to get your final bids in after the livestream ends.

We hope you’re excited to celebrate our Tag & Release Award Winners as well support TBF by entering to win our raffle and auction! Let the fun begin!
