By now I am sure that everyone knows I love warm water fly fishing, poppers, and fiberglass rods. Melissa and I have built a small business around this love. Needless to say when Cameron over at The Fiberglass Manifesto proclaimed that 2013 would be the Year of the Bluegill I was excited. My goal for January was to make sure that I was the winner for the spotting contest in order to set the tone for the Year of the Bluegill and get it off to a great start (in my mind, at least!). For those that don't know, Cameron holds a spotting contest each month. The idea is that the reader/follower will submit photos of themselves wearing The Fiberglass Manifesto apparel. Each month, voting takes place and a winner is chosen. While working on poppers, I had Melissa take a photo of me while I was wearing my TFM bluegill shirt. I mean what better way to kick of the Year of the Bluegill then to have a warm water junkie win the first month?!?!? So, with a big push and a lot of asking, our friends, family, followers, fans and customers came through. I won January and became a finalist for the grand prize.
It's that time again for me to reach out and ask all of our fans, followers, customers, supporters, friends and family to take some time and vote for me. I would love to end the Year of the Bluegill on a high note. I feel that these fish are underrated and never get the respect they deserve. As I have stated before, they are the Rodney Dangerfield of the fish community....no respect! To make matters worse, I missed more than half of the Year of the Bluegill thanks to my injury. Disappointing for sure. So with all that being said, I am asking each of you to send an email to Cameron over at The Fiberglass Manifesto and tell him you want to vote for Jeff Price. The email address is firstname.lastname@example.org. Thanks for your help and support!
