We (Finally) Have a Winner!

It took us longer than we anticipated to get everyone together to judge our inaugural Sweaty Waders/Sweetwater Fly Shop short video contest. It was an extremely tough decision. We received 5 great entries. All of our entrants should be very proud of their work. In the end, though, the judges were unanimous. The video that most effectively captured the spirit of the competition was Kevin Inui’s “2013: A Year on The Water.” Congratulations, Kevin, you’ve won a brand new Winston Passport fly rod! We’ll be contacting you soon. And for everyone else, start filming for 2014’s contest, which promises to be even bigger and better!

Deadline Extended – Video Contest

Big Cutty’s going to be out of town the first week of January (heading to Brazil to tangle with some peacock bass, but more on that later). So why not give you videographers a couple more weeks to finish up your submissions for our short video contest? Get them submitted by midnight on January 15th (hey, that’s a month from today!) and you might win yourself a new fly rod! To submit your entry, upload it to Vimeo, choosing to allow downloads. Then send us a link to your video, either by messaging us on Facebook or by emailing us at customerservice@sweetwaterflyshop.com. Include contact information (email & phone number) in your message or email, so we can get in touch with you.

Video Contest Entry

Austin Trayser sent us this cool video of fishing on the Blackfoot River, here in Montana. Watch it! And submit your own short video (5 minutes max) by December 31st January 15th. You could win a new fly rod!

The Judges Have Ruled

Chris Eckley sent us this great video of Giant Trevally fishing on Kiritimati Island. Watch it and be jealous! But it smashed through the 5 minute maximum length cutoff for our short video contest. Edit it down a little and resubmit it, Chris. From the looks of it, a new rod could come in handy.
