Luck be a lady tonight

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. 


  1. I hope you went out and bought a lottery ticket. With luck like that you just might have a chance at becoming a millionaire. ;) Congrats.

  2. I have a funny feeling that I'm not that lucky. ;)

  3. Forget what Trout Magee said, buy me a lottery ticket. My email address is windknots1949@gmail.com don't forget to send me your email address so I can send you the super secret password to get your app.

  4. Hey Anthony.....I forgot to say congratulations on winning Howard's contest. So congratulations and I'll be on the look out for your review. Does the app work for the iTouch?

  5. Thanks Ed. I'm not 100% sure but I think that it should. There are iPad specific apps but I think that this one will work with all the i-whatevers.

    Howard, I'll get you a lottery ticket but it's your job to figure out how to cash it in, in PA. ha! Email is on it's way.
