Trouts Journal

This Week’s Winner

Ivan Orsic / Nov 16, 2012

Our “Best of 2012” Photo Contest is officially el fuego. We’ve had some great submissions on instragram and we want to thank everyone who has participated so far. This week’s winner is Daniel Byrnes AKA “beertrout.” This image really grabbed our attention. Nice work beertrout – congratulations. This week’s prize: a Rio Grand weight forward fly line ($74.95 MSRP!) with the following features:

- slightly heavier which loads fast action rods more quickly

- AgentX and SFT coatings for buoyancy and smoothness

- Welded loops on both ends for fast rigging

How’s your line holding up at the end of this season? Cracked, dirty… not really floating anymore? If it is time for a line change or upgrade we’ve got the cure for what ails you right HERE.

You can check all of the photo contest entries out at the #troutsflyfishing hash tag. New to instagram? Here is a quick 101 on how it works.

Haven’t submitted your photo yet? Get after it. The grand prize is a fishpond Sling Pack, which will be awarded at the end of the month. Want to check out a gear review on the Sling Pack? Click HERE.

Stay tuned to #troutsflyfishing and next week. We’re expecting more great entries and we have more killer gear and prizes to hand out. Don't forget: you-need-to-be-in-it-to-win-it.
