Orvis Carp Photo Contest


Orvis has initiated a carp central page on their website and is putting on a carp photo contest and they are NOT messing around.  This contest is going to have the kind of backing that only a company of Orvis' stature can put on.  They are going to have several sub-contests with different themes and prizes culminating in a grand prize of an H2 fly-rod.

This weeks theme is "biggest" carp and I would really encourage everybody to participate.  The more participants the more the fun.  Just as importantly Orvis has shown a strong interest in participating in the fly fishing for carp revolution this year.  If we want Orvis (and by extension the rest of the industry) to maintain or even grow that participation we need to support this fun promotion.

Now, frankly I am ineligible because I was consulted an eensy weensy tiny bit along with many of the other carp bloggers.  I really want to participate anyways so as a show of solidarity I am going to submit my smallest carp.  OK, I admit - I like being a bit of a smart-ass too but don't be a smart ass and vote for me.

    1. You know Wendy, I don't know for sure. I know they are taking the popular vote, but I don't know if it is the final authority.
