Guess the Fish and Fly Contest Winner Revealed
By Kirk Deeter
A quick note before I get into the prize-winning answer: This Saturday night, I will be hosting the Fly Fishing Film Tour event to be held at the Wildlife Experience in Parker, Colorado.
What's more, Tim Romano will be there as part of the pre-show festivities, showing some artistic prints from the recent "Surface Film" event. So if you happen to be in the Denver area, and you want to come out and chat with both of us, we'd love to see you. For those of you who haven't seen the 2013 Fly Fishing Film Tour you should plan to do so when it is nearby. And even if you took in the first F3T event in Denver a couple months ago, the Wildlife Experience showing is particularly fun because the films are projected in high definition on a huge screen. Tickets are $12 in advance, $15 at the door, and doors open at 5:30 p.m., showtime is 7 p.m.
Okay... now onto the winner.
Congratulations to rharris, who was the first to correctly guess that these were bonefish. I caught the "lower left" fish. And I used a "Gotcha" fly. Hit me with your contact information at firstname.lastname@example.org, and I'll send you a RIO Gold fly line.
The clear fork in the tail of the lower left fish is the giveaway that says they're bonefish. I would never cast over one bonefish to catch another bonefish. As notoriously spooky as these creatures are, the only possible shot was lower left. I led it by three feet. And the "Gotcha" was a good guess.
