fishing for words

(and tossing out random thoughts)


got kids? get out the crayons and promise that you won’t “bogart” the great fly fishing gear they might win


No Adults Allowed (for the contest, that is)

Shhhh…don’t tell anyone, but here’s your chance to give your kids an early start in Take Kids Fly Fishing’s kickoff contest. I happen to know that one force behind TKFF, Kirk Werner (aka Unaccomplished Angler and author of the Olive the Woolly Bugger books), has left the hen house unguarded.

Possibly because he’s heading out for an annual trip to Yellowstone, details and related materials for the contest I was told would begin in two days are already available here. This page has all the info and PDFs you need your kids need to get an unofficial head start on winning some pretty sweet gear.

It makes me wish I were a kid, knowing that there’s a chance to win some cool stuff, including:

While this is all great stuff and, sure, the contest will bring traffic to, it’s a simple statement within a TKFF blog post addressing why the site exists that brings my support: “We want kids to go fly fishing.”

Simple and clear — with TKFF providing the connection between the parents of those kids with suppliers of pint-sized gear.

The contest “officially” begins June 1st. Tell ‘em we sent you.

Just don’t tell them we sent you early.
