Announcing the #TroutsPackItOut Photo Contest

Ivan Orsic / Mar 1, 2018

With the season kicking off, we want to help our rivers remain clean and trash-free throughout the year. With that in mind, we are excited to announce the first monthly installment of our #TroutsPackItOut Photo Contest. Here's how the Monthly #TroutsPackItOut Photo Contest will work: When you go fishing, pick up all the riverside trash you can find. Once you're off the water, take a photo of your haul of trash and post it on Instagram. Make sure that you use the hashtags #TroutsPackItOut and #EndorsedByMotherNature to enter your photo into the monthly #TroutsPackItOut Photo Contest.

For the month of March, we're excited to partner with our friends at Rep Your Water. They've graciously donated a righteous prize pack for the winner of March edition of the #TroutsPackItOut Photo Contest. The Rep Your Water prize pack includes a Rep Your Water Hat, a Rep Your Water Performance Shirt (which is UPF 25 and 100% Made In The United States), and a Rep Your Water Fishmask Sunshield (which, coincidentally, are made of 8 recycled plastic bottles).

To be eligible to win the Rep Your Water Prize Pack, all Instagram submissions must be posted and hashtagged by 11:59 PM on 3/31/18. The winner will be determined by the Trouts Fly Fishing team and will be judged based on quality, quantity, and uniqueness of your riverside trash haul. We will announce the winner in early April and start up April's edition of the #TroutsPackItOut Photo Contest, as well!
