Vote In Our 2020 “Dad Outdoors” Photo Contest—and You Could Win, Too!

A couple weeks ago, we asked you to post your best photos of dads outdoors on Facebook and Instagram for a chance to win one of three great fly rods: a Helios 3, a Recon, or a Clearwater model. We received many great images, and from those we’ve chosen our ten finalists. Now you get to help pick the winner.

Take a gander at the top 10 photos in the widget below (you’ll find larger versions below), and then choose your three favorites. The photographer whose image receives the most total votes will win the Helios 3, while second place gets a Recon, and third place a Clearwater.

We’ll also give a pair of Orvis Nippers to one randomly selected voter at the end of the voting. To be eligible to win the nippers, you MUST leave a comment about the photos in the comments section below. (That’s the only way we’ll know who you are, since the poll widget doesn’t collect data on voters.)

Voting is open until NOON (12:00 p.m. EDT) on Saturday, June 20. We will announce the winners on Father’s Day, June 21. So choose your three favorites, and then leave a comment!

Don’t forget to leave your comment!

The sweepstakes is open only to legal residents of the USA who are 18 or older. (We apologize to our readers in Canada and overseas; Click here for an explanation of why we have to do this.)

      1. Magnifique !!!
        Continue et prends du plaisir en pratiquant cette belle passion qu est la photo… Bravo Hélène

    1. This guy is a single day that is doing everything wholesome with his children every day. He is a great dad. If you look at this pics… his activities are not just monthly… they are daily… including church.

  1. Introducing the more challenged people and children to keep this art of fishing from generation to generation. That is what life is about! My father introduced fishing to my brothers and sisters at a young age. My husband introduced me to fly fishing. I love it!

  2. They are all winners to me! Keep getting out there with the kids, dads (and everyone) 🙂

  3. Love to see dads sharing their love of nature with their children and building future environmentalists.

  4. All lovely images and evoke elements of the sport we love. For me, the black and white image by Christopher Stelter of a Dad? clearly absolutely immersed in the teaching with a hands on passion to a yound lad & the powerfully emotive ‘no limits’ shot by Mike Burnside and Kaitlin Boyer’s beautiful scenic pic of dad and daughter together; summed up much of what flyfishing is all about…and it’s often not about the fish…

    1. Thank you for the kind words Justin. That’s my son Jack and my Dad (who is actually is a retired teacher). He taught my brother and I how to fish almost 45 years ago and now seeing him teach my son is truly priceless.

  5. They are all great pics, any time you are share the outdoors you are winning winning and this is never more true than when you share the outdoor experience with kids, pass it on!

  6. I love to get out on the water with my Dad! Great photos of Dads and kids making memories!

  10. Très jolie photo et super initiative d un papa qui initié son fils à la pêche tout en relâchant les poissons dans leurs milieu naturel bravo

  11. The black and white picture by Chris Stelter is my favorite. You can just feel the excitement of the older man teaching his grandson. Makes me miss my own Dad. Happy Father’s Day, everyone!

    1. Thank you for the kind words Claire. The picture is special to me. Watching my Dad teach my firstborn how to fly fish on the same waters he taught me at about the same age is priceless.

  12. Great pics love the kids and family all getting into the outdoors! Mike & Kenzi are a great example to all of us that no matter what life Throws your way we can still do the things we love and enjoy the outdoors! Such an inspiration too is all! Never let anything stop you from trying to reach your dreams & goals! Happy fathers day to all!!

  13. Magnifiques photos ! La nature est mise en valeur et reposante. Ma préférée est celle d’Anthony avec son loulou en porte-bébé. Belle transmission de sa passion !
