The podcast has been going for a little over a month now and the response and feedback has been great! Thank you to everyone that has listened, left us a rating, review or contacted us with feedback directly. All are greatly appreciated. As a way of saying thanks we are going to do a giveaway, the first of what I hope will be many giveaways coming to Traditional Outdoors listeners.
Following our interview last week with Cameron Mortenson of The Fiberglass Manifesto. Cameron graciously offered to donate a brand new 8′ 5 wt Eagle claw Feather light fly rod. Now if you have listened to the episode, this is the fly rod that introduced Cameron to fly fishing over 20 years ago. Eagleclaw is still producing them and Cameron keeps some in stock for people interested in giving glass rods or fly fishing in general a try. For an entry level rod Cameron says these are great! So, following his generous offer, I contacted some other friends I know in the fishing community and secured a new in the box TFO (Temple Forks Outfitters) C-Prism fly reel. I have it pre-loaded with RIO WF5 floating line and backing. Basically this is a new ready to fish outfit that would be enjoyed by both accomplished fly angler or someone looking to get started. This outfit would cost over $200 to purchase separately. Rules for the giveaway are listed below and we’ve tried to keep it as simple as possible but we want to make sure we are fair with the drawing. See entry rules below these photos of the items in the giveaway.
Basically here is what you need to do.
1) Leave us a new rating and review (or just leave a comment if using podbean) on either itunes, stitcher or podbean.
2) After your rating and review send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org with notification that you completed a rating and review, where the review was entered (iTunes, Stitcher or Podbean) and your id for that platform that is associated with the review. This helps us make sure that when we draw a winner we are sure we are sending to the correct person so get the email to us as soon as possible to claim the review for your entry into the drawing. That is all you have to do to enter. However if you would like a second entry in the drawing also see item number 3.
3) if you would like to have a second entry in the drawing you can also head over and like the Traditional Outdoors Facebook page, locate the giveaway announcement on the Facebook page and share the giveaway to your timeline. Be sure to include your full name in your email so we can validate that you have shared the contest to your personal page on Facebook. Also, please take the time to give The Fiberglass Manifesto facebook page a like as well.
We will draw a winner on May 14th and announce the winner on social media, the website and in an upcoming podcast as well. The podcast will likely be Episode 10 which will be released on May 20th.
Be advised that a backup winner will also be drawn in the event that the primary winner does not claim their prize within 14 days. So be sure to monitor social media and the website for the announcement.
Good luck everyone!
