If you want a chance at winning a free fly rod, a really good one at that, you have come to the right place. To celebrate and promote our first year offering guide services we will be giving away two fly rods: a Sage One Switch Rod 11’6” 7 weight ($850 value) and a PacBay Quickline Switch Rod 11’ 7 weight ($300 value). Both of these rods will be custom made by me. How do you win?
To have a chance to win the Sage One Switch Rod you simply have to use one of our services at Minam Raft Rentals between October 1st 2012 and April 15th 2013. If you use our shuttle service you will get one ticket in the drawing, if you rent a raft you will get two tickets in the drawing, if you use our guide service you will get one ticket, per angler, per day in the drawing (example: 4 guys on a 4 day guided trip means you get 16 tickets in the drawing). The Sage One Switch Rod will be custom made by me (still waiting for the blanks to arrive) and will be used as a demo rod until eligibility for the drawing ends so expect a small amount of wear. The Sage One switch rod will be used by me for an in depth 8 switch rod review that will be completed next spring at the end of the steelhead season. The rod will also be available for use by anyone who uses our guide service. Go to our guided trips page here to see prices for an all-inclusive guided trip, but feel free to email me at firstname.lastname@example.org if you have something a little different in mind than what I have listed. Visit www.minamraftrentals.com for information about shuttles and raft rentals.
Want to win a free switch rod, but it just isn’t in the cards this season for you to get over to the Grande Ronde and use our services? You can win a free PacBay Quickline Switch Rod by helping us spread the word about our services and promotion. You have two ways to be entered into the PacBay Quickline switch rod drawing. First, like us on facebook and write a comment on our page. Your comment can be as simple as “I want a free switch rod!” Or whatever you would like to write on our page. For a second chance to win, or if you refuse to use Facebook, mention the promotion on another website, forum, etc. Simply send me an email at email@example.com with a link to the page where you spread the word about the promotion and I will write your name on a ticket and put it in the drawing. Any questions feel free to ask.
The PacBay Quickline is really an excellent feeling rod. I built one last year and have really enjoyed using it. The one I will be giving away will be a new custom build. I used the PacBay switch handle on the last one and was not impressed with the quality of cork so I will be making a custom handle for the give away rod.
