Our Second Annual Tax Day Giveaway received thousands of entries, but at the end of the day, only one angler could be the winner. The randomly selected recipient of a complete fly-fishing package, including a 9-foot 5-weight Recon Fly Rod Outfit, is Christopher Skram of Aurora, Colorado.

We asked Chris to tell us a bit about his fishing life, and here is what he shared:

Making a living didn’t leave much time in the past to do much “catching,” but I’ve been trying to make up lost time since I retired in 2011. I spin-fish in Wyoming, Colorado, and New Mexico waters, usually while rv-ing with family. I have a couple of grandsons who seem to have caught the bug, which is more fun to watch than my own fishing. This gear will add a whole new dimension to my fishing repertoire, as only fly-fished in my younger days. . .a loooong time ago. I guess it’s time for this old coot to (re)learn new ways of fun and relaxation!

Chris says that he lost most of the photos from his past in the floods of 2013, but he’ll try to get us a fishing shot with the new gear.

Thanks to all who entered the contest. We’ll launch another one soon, so stay tuned!
