CONTEST: Help Redfish, Win a Reel

Redfish photos should look like this…

Not this…

Our friend Capt. Gordon, a North Carolina fly fishing guide, wants to make the second picture a thing of the past, so more people can take more of the first.

The problem is that North Carolina still allows a particularly indiscriminate type of commercial fishing in the form of unattended gill nets.

Capt. Gordon started A PETITION TO STOP UNATTENDED GILL NET PRACTICES.

He needs 1,ooo signatures to send it to the Governor.

Here’s the deal. Go sign his petition, then leave a comment on this post saying “signed.” That’s all you have to do to help a fly brother out.  For those two seconds of your time, you will be eligible to win a REDINGTON TITANIUM CDL REEL for 7/8 W Line. (A Winner will be chosen at random from the comments list on this post, provided your name matches up with the petition.)
