Caption Contest: Win Redington Waders For Christmas!

By Tim Romano

It's been about a month since we've run a caption contest. Since it's holiday time, and we're in the giving mood, we thought we'd let you all try for a pair of really nice waders. The best caption to the photo above wins a pair of Redington Sonic-Pro Wader pants that retail for $249.95. 

Good luck and get to writing. We'll announce a winner the day after Christmas—Wednesday, Dec. 26.

And here we see "Piscatoris Insanus" in his natural habitat. Piscatoris has evolved over the centuries in order to pursue his quarry; the use of simple tools and rudimentary floating devices allow Piscatoris to brave the elements in a variety of climates. It is generally thought that the impending ice age will leave Insanus largely unaffected, as he is undeterred by foul weather and large amounts of money required while in search for fishable water.

Piscatoris has also developed several vital natural defense mechanisms. When confronted by an angry mate about his desire to venture out in inclimate weather on an anniversary or holiday, flowers and a "mani-pedi" day serve as a diversion.

As Bill pushes the raft along, his thoughts drift back to the early planning stages of the trip and wonders with all this ice if this is what Tim had meant when he said, "this section of river has dry fly fishing like you have never experienced before".

And here we see "Piscatoris Insanus" in his natural habitat. Piscatoris has evolved over the centuries in order to pursue his quarry; the use of simple tools and rudimentary floating devices allow Piscatoris to brave the elements in a variety of climates. It is generally thought that the impending ice age will leave Insanus largely unaffected, as he is undeterred by foul weather and large amounts of money required while in search for fishable water.

Piscatoris has also developed several vital natural defense mechanisms. When confronted by an angry mate about his desire to venture out in inclimate weather on an anniversary or holiday, flowers and a "mani-pedi" day serve as a diversion.
