A Fly Fishing Party & You’re Invited

Today marks three years of  Casting Across!

For three years I’ve been writing about the quarry of fly fishing: fish, rivers, and personal achievements. I’ve been writing about  the culture of fly fishing: literature, podcasts, and gear. The people, places, and things  are as much a part of Casting Across as I am. It is fun to  tell stories and share knowledge and attempt to be funny all within the same theme, It is even more fun when it spills over the edges of a website and into real rivers and restaurants.

Through Casting Across, I’ve been able to form some great relationships. I appreciate comments, emails, and social media chirps – and I do my very best to respond right away. I’d probably still write if no one was reading… but having people read makes it that much better.

Also, I’ve had a chance to collaborate with some amazing people who represent the best of what is out there in the industry. Some of these companies have graciously offered up some of their gear for a giveaway. To celebrate three years of Casting Across, to say thank you for reading, and to spread my writing to a wider audience, I was able to  give away hundreds of dollars worth of flies, leaders, packs, and more to ten winners.

Here are the 10 packages I gave away, and who won:

  • Appalachian Furled Leader Co.
    • Furled Leaders: All-Purpose, Big Meat (flouro), Big Meat (mono), Blue Line,  Euro Hybrid, & Mountain Wax (2)

    Well wishes to 3 yrs. We enjoy yor articles which bring back memories of our younger fishing days. Keep up the writing because there is always some new or young person who will check out your posts and become a life long fly guy or gal.

    I’ve been listening to (and catching up on) ‘2 Guys and a River’ podcasts… and really enjoying them. Then I heard of ‘Casting Across’ on Season 3 Episode 7, so I thought I would come & check it out. I guess now I’ll be doing some reading as well.
    I started fly fishing and fly tying about a year ago… a little late in life, but better late than never. So much to learn, so much information out there.
    Looking forward to what insights (and information) you provide. I need all the help I can get!
