Created by "chowder master" and Brooklyn Anglers Association founder Ben Sargent, the annual Brooklyn Fishing Derby is a seven-week-long tournament that pits fishermen who "who want to get more out of their city in an environmentally conscious and responsible manner" against each other.

Ben and his partners make it their mission to show urbanites the abundant natural resources available to them around the city.

The tournament runs from now until 21 November 2010 with a variety of prizes, including a big pile of cash for whoever gets the biggest catch. Registration is rolling, so New Yorkers can sign up at any point on the derby website. Now grab your rods and go hook something!
