Hooked for Life

Each year, come October, we start beating the photo contest drums pretty loudly. The reason is simple: each year we offer a list of prizes comprised some of the best fly fishing gear our there -- and this year is our biggest year yet by far -- and we want to make sure we reach as many readers as possible to insure that everyone gets a crack at it. And, there's more in it for us that just getting to give away some truly killer gear. In the process of doing so each year, we get to assemble a great collection of fly fishing photographs for everyone to ogle for years to come.

Only one week remains to enter your best fly fishing photographs in our 2014 photo contest for a chance at over $3,000 in prizes from Orvis, Smith Optics, Cheeky Fly Fishing and Scientific Anglers. If you haven't entered yet, or haven't entered your limit of 5 photographs, head to the official contest page to do so.

For some extra motivation, lets here's a sample of a fly fishing outfit that grand prize winner -- who will get to build his or her own custom outfit including an Orvis Helios 2 fly rod, a Cheeky Fly Fishing fly reel, a pair of Smith Optics ChromaPop sunglasses and a Scientific Anglers Sharkwave fly line -- could walk away with.
