Win TWO Clearwater Fly Rod Outfits in Our “One to Keep, One To Give” Sweepstakes!

We enjoy giving stuff away here on the Orvis News, but it’s always more fun if we can figure out a cool way to do it. Since it’s the holiday season, we thought we’d incorporate the spirit of giving even more in our latest sweepstakes. One way that we often describe how we want folks to feel about Orvis merchandise is Proud to Own and Proud to Give. So we’re giving away two (2!) complete Clearwater Fly Rod Outfits—which include a fly rod, reel, and line—so the winner can keep one and give the other to someone else. Do you have a buddy or a child who’s looking to get into fly fishing? Perhaps your significant other would like an outfit so that he or she can join you on the water. The possibilities are boundless.

Here’s how the contest works: All you have to do is click the “Answer a Question” bar in the widget below to tell us whom you’d give the other outfit to. (Don’t worry: no one but us will see your answer.) One lucky winner, drawn at random, will be able to choose two Clearwater Fly Rod Outfits (of the same model), from a 7’6″ 3-weight outfit to a 14′ 9-weight Spey rod outfit.

We know that we can’t force you to give one of these outfits away, but we’re trusting that you won’t be a grinch and hoard them for yourself.

If you’d like to double your chances of winning, subscribe to the Orvis Mailing list, too, using the same widget.

The contest runs through Thursday, December 15, and one winner will be chosen at random to receive two Clearwater Fly Rod Outfits of his or her choice.

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. I would give one to my son when he gets out of the service next year and the other to my wife so she can learn to fly fish as well.

  2. My son and I have fished together all his life . I recently became disabled so fly fishing is difficult at best. He now has a son of his own . If I won the contest I would give away both rods. One to my son and one to my grandson. what joy that would bring to an old man , watching my son and grandson fly fishing together.

  3. My Dad! No one else I can possible think of giving this rod to other than my dad. His passion for fly fishing is bar none and taught me everything I know!!

  4. My oldest son has really become interested in fly fishing after our recent trip to Yellowstone National Park and this would make a terrific gift for him.

  5. To the one I taught to fish and has been fishing responsibly since he was 2 years old My Son Damen Keating. For Damen to get up in the early morning for work is a chore, but if it’s for fishing he’s never missed a beat……that’s-a-my boy ! 🙂 🙂

    A proud pappa

  6. I would give the other rod to my wife and teach her how to fly fish as I plan to retire next year and travel the US visiting different parts of the country

  7. To experience the thrill of fly fishing with any of the wonderful and strong women involved with Casting for Recovery (Breast Cancer Survivors) no Life Winners!

  8. I would give it to the Sun City, Georgetown, Texas, Hunting & Fishing Club to use in their fund raising efforts to benefit the community and help teach youngsters how to fish.

  9. I will give it to my 17 year old son Tanner! He is getting ready to head to college in the mountains of VA and could really use this!

  10. I will donate both fly rods to a junior fly fishing club that is forming at my local high school. I will serve as their club adviser.

  11. I would give both away. I already have a nice Helios 2. One to my 13 year old son who is just getting into flyfishing and loving it. The second to a friend of mine who has been out with me a couple of times and would love to get some gear.

  12. My buddy Corey. He’s getting ready to retire from the Army after 20 years and a ton of deployments. He needs a way to relax and refocus

  13. My father-in-law. We’ve fished a few times before for trout. Now that we live in Hawaii I would love to take him out to chase some bones!

  14. I’d give the other rod to my long time friend and elder member of my fly fishing club. He comes to meetings, but seldom fishes. He listens to my tales of questionable fly choices and awesome trout and smiles as if remembering an old and familiar friend. He ties beautiful flies, yet never puts them in the water. I suspect his fly fishing gear is old and his waders creased, crinkly, and leaky. I think he’s embarrassed, though he would never say. I would give the rod to him, so we could go fishing together, creased, crinkly, leaky waders and all.

  15. I have a close friend who is blind. we use my gear right now as he learns casting flies from the bank. He really likes the feel of the rod when it loads and his timing is great. All of his gear is spinning so even if we don’t win this time I’ll give him one of my older set up’s.

  16. I would give it to my son who is a fly fishing fanatic. He was elected as a freshmen in college to be president of the college fly fishing club

  17. I would give the second one to my son in law who is just getting started fly fishing and loves it and it’s been awesome to spend time with him! He’s a hard working young man and I would love for him to have a great set up to fish with.

  18. I would give it to my boyfriend who is trying to convert from spin casting to fly fishing. He needs some encouragement and this would do the trick!!!

  19. I would give the rod to the first female in our local Project Healing Waters who is learning to fly fish with one arm and sight in one eye. She is also learning to tie her own flies. A remarkable you my woman who inspires us all.

  20. I’d give one to my best friend my wife and give the other to my son in law who taught me to chase trout. I already have a great Recon rod that my wife bought me.

  21. My wife would get the second one. I taught her to fly fish 28 years ago and she caught an Atlantic salmon on our honeymoon!

  22. Going to give the other Rod to My Brother…..He needs to be converted from conventional fishing to the Awesome World of Fly Fishing…..

  23. I would give one to my father and one to my son. My father is 76 and always wanted to learn and my son is 17 getting ready to go to college so I want to have some trips together before he goes to school.

  24. I’d give my 2nd rod to my girlfriend. I’m trying to get her into fly fishing, but spoiled her this summer with a guided trip on the Snake. Now she says she’ll only go fishing with a Teton in the background. Help me change that with her own rod.

  25. I’d give the second one to the Tanglewood 4H camp in Lincolnville, Maine because they are kind enough to let us anglers fish on their banks of the Ducktrap River.
    Great contest! Thank you.

  26. HORSE PUCKY… You would figure with 56 FIFTY-SIX authorized dealers, in CANADA … you could INCLUDE CANADIAN PATRONS OF YOUR BUSINESS. Just like the TV fishing show from Ontario you sponsored with your trout fly assortment for $9.95 … then when you tried to order them, customers where told NO… Can’t ship some of these flies (feathers) to Canada. BULL … I asked why don’t you make a Canadian assortment then? YOU DID. So … again you are a company of EXCLUSION. 10 TEN dealers in Canada, and you can’t run a contest to include us. Your PDF explaining why … does not cut it. I have also seen you run a FOR CANADIANS ONLY contest. Step back and re-evaluate you stance on US residence only.

  27. My son, who has Tommy John surgery on Friday will get the 2nd rod. He should be ready to fish by the summer time if all heals well. He is the one who is teaching me to fly fish!

  28. I would give mine to my pastor so I could Flyfish with him and enjoy God’s beautiful earth together. The simple things in life are what are most important.

  29. I’ll give both to my two boys, Bennett and Brent, 9 and 7 y.o. who want to get into fly fishing with their Mom and Dad.

  30. I would give one to each of my sons. It would be the best gift I have gotten them since I gave each of the Red Ryder BB Guns. And, they can’t shoot their eyes out!

  31. Sending both rods to Seattle: One for son-in-law and one for grandson. Tim & Brooks VanOss.

    MERRY CHRISTMAS from Old Beau in Tennessee. I am already on your list. Thank you!
