It’s time again for me to cast off to the different reaches of the Internet River and show everyone a few honey holes that are guaranteed to produce a catch or two. A few of these are contests, so once again I’m just showing how gracious and generous I can be (as long as you don’t usurp my possible win) when it comes to showing people the path to outdoor rewards…….Go Forth, prosper, read, comment. Do that and the good Karma Mama will smile upon your next fishing trip. Promise ~
I’ve really come to enjoy and appreciate the writings of Matt who writes the blog Fishing Poet. Not all of his entries are in poem form. He also writes thoughtful observations about Fatherhood, his home area and so on… But as one example that shouldn’t be missed I suggest taking a peek at this entry call DOWNSTREAM.
A Giveaway ~ Rob who writes the blog A Bad Backcast and Other Inane Musings recently got himself a fancy kayak that needs a name. He’s giving away a fly box and flies for the brilliant soul who comes up with a great name that keeps him safe from voodoo nautical lore. The type that implies an un-named boat will surely sink. I’ve been thinking about it and I think the best boat names have a feminine curve so I’m sure he’s considering the name “Outdooress” …right Rob? Go give him some ideas! (closes April 9th) (Outdooress) (Outdooress) (Outdooress) or (Rebecca) will do.
Derek is a guide on the Yakima River and recently wrote an article entitled “On being a Fly Fishing Guide” Now I have to admit, I’m a bit guide shy, so his blog entry eased a few fears of mine. It’s a great insight from his guiding perspective. I feel I should also mention Derek made an offer to those who previously read my Fly Fishing Addiction article. He said, ” I want you all to know that I offer treatment in a caring, supportive, river environment. Come continue your addiction on the beautiful Yakima River in WA. Half and Full-day programs.” I’m all over that sort of therapy!
A Giveaway ~Ben who writes the blog Ben G. Outdoors is also having a giveaway. Ben runs a great blog with a good solid mixture of the outdoors. For this giveaway, all you need to do is check out Ben’s Blog, subscribe and maybe even visit the sponsors site for an extra entry. He’s introducing the Marauder Outdoors quick adjust sling and if anyone of you utilize slings you already know ‘quick’ anything is GOOD. If you win, don’t forget me in your acceptance speech! (closes April 11th)
And Lastly. Ron writes the blog Colorado Angler. He’s a fantastic writer with a hook of humor that sets you. With a barb. Go read his recent article called Angling Antithesis and if you can watch the video that supposedly at the top, well, I’m jealous. Enjoy!
