The Youth Tournament was started by Fritz Boyden who was a member of the Nags Head Surf fishing Club for over 30 years.  He was dedicated to fishing and everything that was a part of fishing.  He was known for saying “if you take your kids fishing, they will never get in trouble”.  1967, to further his belief that taking kids fishing teaches them some very important fact of life, he started the youth tournament for the NHSFC.  In the beginning it was a small event with just a few participants.  Each year the event has grown.
