Monthly Raffle

Holidays and Steelhead
By Monthly Raffle Director Jeff Goyert

When November rolls around each year, the vast majority of Americans think of autumn leaves, roast turkeys, and pumpkin pies. The rest of us think of rainy weather, frosty cold mornings, and STEELHEAD! Pay attention, we have some great raffle prizes.
Time to hit the big time with a Spey rod? This month a lucky raffle winner will have their choice between a 6/7 wt or 8/9 wt 13 ft 4 section Spey rod. These Korean SK Carbon rods have titanium ring-lock guides, AA cork handles, aluminum reel seats, and Cordura rod tubes with cloth bag. Included with each rod is a matching Echo Ion or Bravo large arbor disc drag reel. NOTE: either of these outfits would also do you proud in the surf!
Rich Rubin has very generously donated a sampling of some of his favorite steelhead flies, including tube flies, and a few egg patterns. They are packaged up in Feather-Craft slotted top "meat-locker" fly box.
Spending rainy winter nights at the tying bench? Make things easier on yourself with a made in the USA Oasis eye and bead center (not pictured). The ten storage jars with easily sharpie marked screw tops will organize and store a variety of your favorite beads and eyes. Three rounded bottom front trays make taking even the smallest of components out one at a time a snap.

Just about every fishing trip requires something to eat and drink which requires something to stash said eats and drinks. This coyote brown 600 denier waterproof 792 cubic inch HSD soft side mini cooler will certainly fill the bill. Plenty of room for a sandwich and a couple or three beverages, perfect for a grab and go lunch.
