Two weeks ago, we announced a sweepstakes aimed at folks who wanted to get more involved in fly fishing, which is why the prize was a complete package of gear that included everything you need to go fly fishing:
- An Orvis Encounter Fly-Rod Outfit
- A pair of Encounter Stockingfoot Waders
- A pair of Encounter Wading Boots
- A Safe Passage Guide Sling Pack
The contest drew several thousand entrants, and this morning, we asked our contest widget to choose a random winner: Kimberley Jeffords of Wheatland, Wyoming! Kim was very excited when I contacted her and had this to say:
Thank you very much! I used to fly fish with my Grandpa when I was a little girl. Was never very good at it. My brother is an avid fisherman and says he wants to challenge me, so I would like to re-learn. My Grandpa had an elaborate set-up for tying his own flies, and I would watch him and my Dad make them and loved it. I am very excited to get started.
Sounds like the perfect recipient for such a complete set-up. We’ll make sure that Kim sends us photos of her first time on the water and of her first fish.
Thanks to everyone who participated!
