About This Division

** Announcement**

After prayerful consideration and discussion with the extended leadership team we have decided to postpone all Fishers of Men Tournaments until April 10, 2020.  With the Federal Government requesting the limitation of gatherings to 10 or less people and some State Governments being more restrictive on events we are erring on the side of caution for the safety of our anglers and their families. 

As April 10th draws closer, we will reevaluate how the country is responding to the spread of the virus to see if we need to make any further adjustments.


Welcome to Virginia East Team division of Fishers of Men!

2020 Memberships and Registration is Live!! Join or Renew your membership by Clicking "Join Online" at the top of the page.

Scroll down to our schedule to register for 2020 events!


We will have 6 total points events in 2020, we are allowing teams to drop their lowest points event from their season standings. This will help lessen the blow if a team competing for points has an unforseen circumstance cause them to miss a meeting or event.

- We will have the Romans 5:3-5 "Perserverence Award" at each points event! Some days we struggle on the water and only catch one fish or a small limit, be proud! Bring them to the scales! Not every day is filled with 20lb bags! This award will go to the last place team* to weigh a fish, (*team needs at least one member in attendace at the meeting).

As followers of Christ we are told we will struggle but we must Perservere and push on to the end with our focus on Him! Romans 5: 3-5

-In 2020 we  will continue to have our "just out of the money award" also. Presented by James River Logistics This will award the team just outside the money! (must have at least one member in attendace at the meeting Friday)
