Now, Fly-Carpin is as much a celebration of the online carp cultural revolution as it is a spot for reports and how-to. In order to celebrate what is going on at Instagram I have done two things.
First I have teamed up with CarpPro and Trouts Fly Fishing to put on a little photo contest for the gnarliest fishing hat. Go here for details: http://instagram.com/p/bsNwjtCWC2/
The loot is going to be pretty sweet for such a silly little contest. Winner will get some CarpPro Gaper hooks, some carp flies tied by me AND a new Trouts Fly Fishing trucker hat to replace that nasty lid with.
Any pics of hats posted with the hashtag #gnarlyfishinghat and/or #gnarlyfishinghatcontest by midnight July 16th are eligible. No need to like such and such or this guy or the other. That is not the point. Just post a pic of your fishing hat for fun!
Here are the hats that have been posted to #gnarlyfishinghat so far (updates whenever you come to this page):
Secondly I have added a new filtered feed to the side-bar (called "InstaLips") of Fly-Carpin that shows recent posts to Instagram with the hashtag #carponthefly. Sooooooo.....if you are on Instagram and want your pics to show up on Fly-Carpin be sure and use that hashtag.
