Free Flies?

As many of you know , we've hosted a couple of articles here at Something's Fishy by blogger and trout fishing fanatic Owl Jones. Owl has recently moved his network of blogs over to Wordpress and I believe he's finally got everything up and running smoothly.

Owl has really kicked things up a notch with his blogs since the move to Wordpress and I'm proud to say that we'll still be hosting some of his articles from time to time.

One of his exciting new features is a couple of contests he's running for his readers. The first is a free fly giveaway over at his OMG It's Fly Tying! blog that features a baker's dozen of Owl's handmade flies! How cool is that? All you have to do is hop on over there and tell Owl in 8 words or less why you need those flies. I highly recommend his flies , I've seen pictures and they are exceptionally well done.

Owl's second contest is due to start next week and he has teamed up with the folks at The Hook and Hackle Company to host an essay writing contest. The lucky winner will be rewarded with a brand new, “Xi” 7’9″ 4-piece 3 wt rod building kit. Again , how cool is that? Pretty cool if you ask me. So head on over to Fly Fishing the Southern Blue Ridge and check out some of Owl's great articles , you might even win something!

Have a great weekend!
