Default 2017 Fall Fling Swag-O-Rama!

Well, the start of the swag posting at least...

These first two items are special, not Gatorbyte or short bus special, but special in that they were both made and donated by NGTO members! These will likely be at least silent auction, maybe special raffle - I will let Swampy decide (not). One of the best things about this forum is the willingness of members to donate time and effort, not out of a sense of debt, but a sense of helping someone else enjoy the passion.

Custom Fly Tying Station - "Blackcatbone"

This is a true work of art, genuine American hardwood pieces and perfect for a beginner to a Chuck Morris Ninja.....

Thank you Ryan!

Custom Bamboo Rod - Built by "Runner"

Mike Popick is well known for his custom rod grips and rods - also a standout supporter of Project Healing Waters and talented wood carver. This rod is a PH Young Para 14 7'9" 4/5 weight with 2 tips and I will say feels extra fine in the hand. This will also be a special auction, maybe silent, maybe separate all together. If you are looking to "own" a fine bamboo that won't break the bank, this is the deal for you......







This is just the start of the Fall Fling Fun, but I wanted to get something on the board as we engage our sponsors for more goodies.

Talking

Man o man. I don't know where to start. Two items showed up and boy am I excited.

Later I'll start up another thread for "proper" introductions, but NGTO has a new sponsor!!!! NOONTOOTLA CREEK FARMS!!!

Well they really started it off right with not one but TWO gift certificates for two anglers for a 1/2 day guided trip to their little slice of trout fishing heaven.

I know I've got to see what I can go sell so I can get in on one of these trips!

I can't wait to see and hear about the other items that will be up with the swag tables. This should be a FLING that you dare not miss!

It's almost like looking at your pile of swag on Christmas morning! If you are of another faith I apologize, but this is what it looks like to ME.

Capt. Dave sent a Certificate for a half-day trip of "Hunting Fish in the Marshes of Glynn!"

For the blueliner crowd, Capt. Dave harkens back to his earlier years with a beautiful 6'6" 4-piece 2wt!



He describes this rod as medium fast, which separates it from most 2wt.s!

The rod, regrettably, will not arrive in time for the Fling, but I will arrange shipment.
