Fly Vines Giveaway

Last month, I went steelheading with LG (of 406 Productions, 406 Outfitters, Getting Guided, and Fly Vines) and Matt Breuer (of Ponoi River Company). LG is a man of many hats. All of them ugly. One of those hats is Fly Vines.

Fly Vines takes used fly-lines and recycles them to make sunglass-retainers, bracelets, and lanyards. I have been wearing my sunglass retainers and lanyard for more than a month now and I am a big fan. Gone are the neoprene and cloth retainers. Gone are the ropes of thread from around my neck. The retainers can accommodate thicker frames which other retainers struggle with handling. The lanyard, a simple and light-weight design, carries the basics (tippet, nippers, and forceps) on the water. With previous lanyards, I had too much hanging off my neck. Too many points for my fly line to get tangled around. Too many things going unused. I like the simplicity of the lanyard.

At a recent showing in Missoula, I won a full set (lanyard, sunglass retainers, and bracelet) of Fly Vines. Since I already have my fair share of the recycled fly line products, I figured I would share the love with the internets. So, here are the goods. The winner of this giveaway will receive the Fly Vines lanyard, sunglass retainers, and bracelet. Each person has the chance for three entries into the giveaway.

You get one entry for each of the following completed actions.

Entry #1) Leave a comment in the comments section.
Entry #2) Like Yukon Goes Fishing on Facebook and leave a separate comment reading "I like YGF on FB"
Entry #3) Like Fly Vines on Facebook and leave a separate comment reading "I like Fly Vines on FB"

The act of like-ing or following does not enter you into the contest. The entry is official when the comment describing the action took is submitted. If you already like YGF on Facebook, you aren't entered until you leave the comment "I like YGF on FB." Same goes for Fly Vines. Count 'em - that is three separate comments, resulting in three separate entries into the Fly Vines giveaway.

The contest/giveaway will close at 12:00 AM (Midnight) Mountain Time on Tuesday, April 10th, 2012. The winner will be chosen via the dastardly RNG and will be announced on Tuesday, April 10th, 2012 around 12:00 PM (Noon) Mountain Time.

YGF - thanks for all of the great videos. Your work "sustains" me when I'm unable to hit the river myself. I had never seen the Fly Vines products until your mention of them here on your site. I would definitely benefit from those items - especially the sunglasses retainer. Somewhere along the Little North Fork of the Coeur d'Alene River is a nice pair of Ray Bans courtesy of a bear who got a little too close. :)
