I want to take care of some happenings that have been going on with myself and the Pond Stalker blog to begin with. I have been fortunate lately and I would like to say thanks a bunch to the folks at Rocky Mountain Anglers Fly Shop and also the good folks at H & H Outfitters for their efforts in having drawings that I was lucky enough to win. A great new fishing cap from Rocky Mountain Anglers and a classy new t-shirt from H & H Outfitters. Here is a picture that I hope does justice to both.
My new favorite hat
(Note: The Hat Patch with the flies
is another gadget I will get too in just
My newest Fly Fishing related T-shirt
Love the color!
Also, recently had a nice surprise in the mail from the folks at Nature Boy Designs. They had read my previous post on "Do I need a lanyard" here on the blog. They had sent me the
NBD 225 Lanyard to use.
In addition, they sent along the Hat(ch) Patch to wear on my hat and give them some feedback.
Now look back at the previous picture of my hat with some flies loaded and ready for use. This is a neat new product and I think will be an item that anyone who uses a ball cap when fishing will appreciate. Just clips on and holds flies securely. Want to change hats. Just pull off the Hat(ch) Patch and put on another hat. Simple, and, very useful.
It is also about time that Rebecca Garlock over at the OBN received the Thumbs up Award from the Pond Stalker. If you are an outdoor blogger at all, I am sure that you have heard of or otherwise participate in activity over on that great site. If not, go right now! Join, participate, share, it's Blogging Heaven! Recently, the OBN and Chippewa Boots linked up to provide an opportunity for lucky outdoor bloggers to have a chance to be chosen to receive a pair of Chippewa boots to use and then review on their blog. Actually, (5) outdoor bloggers got that opportunity.
I am very excited to let everyone know that I was chosen to receive a pair of these great boots to use and abuse for awhile while in the outdoors. I will do just that and am more than happy to do a review on my blog. Thanks, Chippewa!
Not to leave off here some of my fellow BlogBuddies who have also been in the spirit of giving during the holidays. I will do a follow up post to address all the goodies and opportunities they have going on. So don't forget to check back.
