Whoa! Either I didn’t make the contest hard enough, or you all did some lightning-fast research. In any case, congratulations to Thatkid, Turkeyman, Ty, and Ben C.! Send your mailing address to, and I’ll get those Umpqua fly-tying kits out to you ASAP for part two of this competition. Each kit includes the materials, hooks, and tools to tie three flies, but to help you get started, I’ll post some short videos to show you how to tie each. When it’s all said and done, I want to see your best work. Remember, the person who ties what I judge to be the best fly wins a new fly rod and reel combo package from Scientific Anglers. Thanks to everyone for contributing their thoughts and guesses for this contest. Stay tuned to see who wins the big finale! And if you like what you see, let me know and I’ll get more videos and trivia on the site. —Ben
