#FliesForTanner - Win Tom Rosenbauer + Shawn Combs Personal Fly Rods

Ivan Orsic / Apr 10, 2023

As you may already know, our very own Tanner Smith was recently diagnosed with Stage IV gastric cancer. He has a long, hard road ahead of him with multiple rounds of chemotherapy, surgeries, procedures, and appointments scheduled in the coming months. Last month, we alerted you to the fundraising efforts surrounding Tanner's cancer treatment in the form of a GoFundMe & the #FliesForTanner auctions.

Well, a unique raffle has entered the #FliesForTanner mix. Two Orvis Living Legends, Tom Rosenbauer + Shawn Combs, are donating their personal, well-loved, magic-filled fly rods to the cause. That's right. You can win Tom or Shawn's own fly rods.

First things first, there will be TWO winners. The first selected winner will get their pick of one of the two rods. The second winner will get the remaining rod.

Opportunities like this don't come around like this often. Check out the details on what's up for grabs and how you can win one of these rare beasts below.
