More than 3,500 people entered our recent Battenkill Disc Reel Giveaway, but only one could be our randomly chosen winner: Karry Dohlen of Columbus, Ohio. For his prize, Karry chose a size II Battenkill Disc. I asked him for a short fly-fishing bio, and here’s what he sent:
I’m still a novice fly fisher. I have spent a lot of time fishing in Western North Carolina and here in Ohio, but there are many places I would like to fish. I just have to get there. I find that fly fishing is for me very Zen-like, as your body and mind have to work together. It is also very calming. I have been experimenting with fly tying, but I need to find more time for that.
Thanks to all who entered the contest!
