Helios 2 rod designer Shawn Combs showing off some CARP lid mojo (via Orvis News)
As promised, in honor of the open season on ditch pigs and the arrival of the new DW swag, we've put together a little photo contest to incentivize you to grab some new gear before your next ghost bustin' session! Here's the skinny:
1. Purchase a CARP hat (orange or yellow) and Dudewater Koozie by mailing a check for $25 to
5267 Spencer Rd.
Lyndhurst, OH 44124
Include a note specifying which color hat and koozie you'd prefer, as well as your return shipping address.
2. I'll ship you the goods. When you receive them, go fishing. Immediately. If your wife gives you grief, just tell her those are the rules.
3. Take pictures of you and or your buddies sporting the lid and or the Koozie, and send them to Jlampros2@gmail.com
Get creative! While standard grip and grins will be accepted... they're boring. We'll be judging for the best photo, not necessarily the best fish. You can kill two birds with one stone if you manage to capture a nice whisker pig hero shot by submitting the same photo to the ORVIS contest being held over at the Carp Central page! Win that one and you might take home a custom Helios 2 rod, the ultimate carp saber.
We'll accept submissions between now and August 31st, with the winners being announced shortly thereafter. The prizes come to you courtesy of my awesome friends and colleagues at the Orvis Company. The winning photographer will receive a SWEET carp care package to include the BRAND NEW Carp taper Hydros fly line (already receiving rave reviews), a copy of Kirk Deeter's recently released Orvis Guide to Fly Fishing for Carp, a carp scale Buff and a new Orvis carp trucker hat! 1st runner up will receive a custom carp fly selection, and 2nd runner up will receive a Helios 2 trucker lid and a carp sticker variety pack.
Questions? Drop me an email. Otherwise, get your check in the mail and start stockpiling those photos!
