This year's photo contest is by far our biggest yet, with over $3,000 in prizes up for grabs. The grand prize winner will walk away with a big prize pack that includes an Orvis Helios 2 fly rod, a Cheeky Fly Fishing reel, a pair of Smith Optics ChromaPop sunglasses and a Scientific Anglers Sharkwave fly line. Three other winners will also take home a mix of prizes from Cheeky, Smith and Scientific Anglers.
Perhaps the best part of all the prizes - including the grand prize winning pack -- is that the winners can customize them as they see fit. Looking to put a bonefish outfit together? Pair the Orvis Helios 2 8-weight with Cheeky's Mojo 425 reel, a Scientific Anglers Sharkwave saltwater line and a pair of Smith Optics ChromaPop sunglasses with blue mirror lenses designed to perform on the flats. Or maybe it's time to refresh your trout setup, or build a roosterfish arsenal? You can do that too.
As one might expect, with this year's contest being the biggest to date, reader response has also been the biggest to date. We've been poring over the mounds of photos that have been entered thus far, sharing them with you on Facebook and Twitter and so on. But we want more.
With only a month to go, it's time to start getting your final (or first) entries in. Entries close October 31 at 11:59pm.
While you're able to share and view individual entries at all times, once the entry period closes we'll make all the photos available for viewing in one neat and tidy package. So, while the judges make their selections, those of you who have entered can see what you're up against and those of you who didn't can take the time to enjoy the entries.
