Not to come off as braggardly, but I've been pretty luck this past week or so. I've won not one but two contests on various blogs and and working on reaping the rewards of my hard not-work.
First off, Howard the Cofisher (not to be confused with Howard the Duck) over at Windknots and Tangled Lines had a contest on who can come up with a good ol' fishing app for the ipod-a-pad-a-phone. I threw something together and low and behold, I was one of the winners along with Luke and Owl Jones. I won the Freshwater Flyfishing Tips by the Pros app and last I heard, Luke and Owl were having a bear shaving contest on who would get one of the other prizes, either a print by A Year on the Fly or a Wheatley Style English fly box.
Then I was checking some emails and saw one from Brian Davis over at the Fishing Journal letting me know that I'd won 2 dozen flies. I shot off a thank you and my address (actually, I inadvertently deleted the email, posted on his blog, he re-emailed me and then I shot it off.) If you've never been to Brian's site, stop on by and say hello.
So in the coming weeks keep an eye out. I plan on doing a review of the app and a posting of the flies once received.
