Time to build a fire, grab a beverage of your choice, and sit down at the bench to tie one that will catch fish.
Here at Orvis, it’s the time of year where we celebrate fly tying, from Fly Tying 101 courses at our stores (find one near you), to showcasing new materials on the blog, to podcasts featuring noted tiers and their patterns.
And this year we want to showcase you.
Starting today, January 13, through February 14 you can enter our Fly Tying Contest on Instagram. We’re looking for an original creation, a fly straight from your brain banana to the vice that we can put in our Orvis Fly Fishing Catalog.
Post a photo of your original fly on Instagram tagged with #OrvisFlyTying and you’re entered.
Our own Shawn Brillion and Tom Rosenbauer will judge the entries on fish and angler appeal.
The prizes are as follows:
Once again, the contest begins today January 13, 2015 and runs through February 14, 2015 until 11:59p.m. EDT. Good luck!
