Ready to Fish with a Free Rod?
By Tim Romano & Kirk Deeter
I told you folks that my New Year's resolution is to get more people flyfishing. Well, Scientific Anglers is partnering with Field & Stream's Fly Talk, really helping to make that possible. Here's the deal:
We have five "Ready to Fish" kits from SA and we're giving them away. When I say kit, I'm talking the whole deal, a 4-piece rod, a reel, fly line and tippet already on that reel, and an instructional DVD. This is a slam dunk option for getting someone young or old started in the sport. Just add water. Actually, there's a target for casting practice in the "youth" kit I'm looking at now. I think "just add kid" is more appropriate for this one.
We have different types of kits, ranging from a special youth kit, to bass, to a saltwater setup. They sell for around a hundred bucks a piece ... it's like I'm handing out five Ben Franklins here ... does this blog rock or what? Thanks Scientific Anglers!
For a shot at a free kit, tell us who you want to start flyfishing by way of your comments below ... your son or daughter ... your mom or dad ... your friend ... you can even choose yourself. Tell us where you're going to go. And you have to promise to make good on your goal by sending us a photo of the first fish you catch.
Because any reason to start fishing is a good reason, we're going to take all the comments, put them in a hat, and pick the winners that way. If you comment, you're entered. If you win, we'll get your kit to you ... just ask my buddy "Alex the Fly Rod Winner."
