Jeff Bailey Memorial Fishing Tournament

September 17, 2022

Lake Bowen 8515 Highway 9
Inman, SC 29349
Safe Daylight - 2pm

The Jeff Bailey Memorial Fishing Tournament has one goal; honor the life and legacy of Jeff Bailey. Mr. Bailey was the Wastewater Superintendent for the City of Inman for over two decades. The award-winning wastewater treatment plant and sewer system that the City of Inman enjoys is a direct result of Mr. Bailey's leadership and vison.

When not at work Jeff could be found with his family, most likely on a boat. The love of the outdoors and fishing was strong in the Bailey family and their friends. When discussion started about to honor Jeff after his passing in July of 2020 the idea for a fishing tournament swam to the top very quickly.

The City of Inman is proud and excited to help bring together the Inman community and celebrate Jeff and Bailey family. If you have any questions regarding the tournament, please call 864.472.6200.
