UPDATE - The winner has been contacted through email and awaiting a reply before posting his name in this post.

I am writing this dispatch overlooking Sant James Harbor on Beaver Island, Michigan and the week leading up to this trip is always a blur.  My intentions were to kick-off the Father's Day Giveaway early last week.  That didn't happen.  I was wrapping up loose ends at work, packing for a two-week trip, driving up to Michigan, and a long list of other excuses.

I know Father's Day was yesterday but I have a stash of stellar gear to give away.  You don't mind entering the contest this week instead?  I didn't think so. 

Here's what is in the mix for the Father's Day Giveaway...

406 FLY LINES - Four Weight Fly Line
BOB WHITE STUDIO - Autographed Copy of John Gierach's New Book
CTS FISHING - Quartz 476 Fly Rod Blank & T-Shirt
ECHO FLY FISHING - Micro Practice Rod 
LOON OUTDOORS - David Rollyn Gear & Accessories
ORVIS - Hydros II Fly Reel
POPS Q TOOL - Grilling Multi-Tool & TFM Coasters
REP YOUR WATER - Apparel Package
TIMBER & FINS - Wanderer Fly Wallet
YETI - Tundra Roadie 20 & Colsters

By my math, there is over $1,300 worth of swag that one lucky dad is going to be named the winner of on Monday, June 29, 2020.  It might as well be you.

Here are the rules...

1.  This contest is for the dads.  Young and old.  This one's for you. 

2.  Send an email to and answer one (or all) of the following questions...

  • What is an outdoor memory that you had with your father and how did that shape your own experience in sharing these activities with your child or children?
  • Have you had a mentor in the outdoors who made an impression on your life?
  • 2020 has been anything but predictable.  What are your summer plans to get outside and on the water?
  • What is your favorite outdoor activity or place that you most enjoy fly fishing and why?
3.  One giveaway submission per email address.
4.  You will receive an email reply with your successful entry for the giveaway.
5.  Entries for the Father's Day Giveaway will be accepted through Sunday, June 28th.
6.  Not required but maybe share with another outdoor dad you know too.
7.  The winner will be chosen randomly and announced on T.F.M., social media, and by email.

A huge thanks to each of the companies who are involved in this giveaway.  I really appreciate the support and the ability to put something like this together for the benefit of the T.F.M. readership.

If you have any questions please let m know by email or DM through Facebook or Instagram.
