We’ve been getting some great photos of nice fish that have been caught on a Rude Trude dry fly. For example, Asher Woodson landed the pretty rainbow above on the “Rudie” (he sent another picture that better shows the trout’s size, but we’ll leave you guessing). He or one of the other contestants in our “Rudie Can’t Fail” photo contest will go home with a brand new Fishpond Cerveza Sidekick chest pack! The original deadline to email us photo submissions was midnight tomorrow night (Sept. 15). Time was getting short!
There’s only one small catch…. Someone bought our grand prize! Yes, you read that right. It’s gone as of a couple of days ago, and it was the only one we had in stock. Not to worry, we’ll order another one from Fishpond. And if you win the contest you won’t even have to pay $70 for the sweet chest pack with a built in beverage holder. But in the meantime, we thought we might as well continue giving away FREE FLIES and accepting more contest entries. Besides, we (and you) are having too much fun challenging ourselves by fishing what is perhaps the world’s worst commercially-tied trout fly! So we’re extending the submission deadline to the end of the month. Check out our previous blog posts for more details, then email us a picture (or pictures) of a fish that you caught on the Rude Trude by midnight on Saturday, September 30th. Don’t have any Rude Trudes in your fly box? We’ve still got a bunch of them here at Sweetwater Fly Shop for you to pick up (did I mention they’re free?). It’s that simple! Of course, the catching is up to you, but therein lies the challenge, and a challenge is always a good thing.
So go ahead and take the Rudie Challenge! Fame, Glory, and a Fishpond Cerveza Sidekick could be yours (and this time, we’ll hold onto the darn thing)!
