Just a few days ago we passed six thousand comments! I want to thank all of you for making that happen, we think it’s nothing short of amazing. We had planned to run a contest to see who would be lucky number 6000, but as it turns out commenters wait for no one. So instead we’re going to give away this awesome Water Gremlin t-shirt to our favourite comment on this post!
This shirt, and many more just like it, were magically transported to us by Mr. Gremlin himself. Straight from the factories of the best damn American-designed and American-made weights you can buy. In fact I’m pretty sure George Washington himself used Water Gremlin weights when he invented Tenkara.
Leave a comment below for your chance to win this awesome shirt! You’re welcome to comment as many times as you like. Also if you leave a comment below and tell us a hilarious and entirely fictional comment (like my tenkara comment above) about the history or magical powers of Water Gremlin we might just give you a shirt for your efforts. The shirts are all men’s large long sleeve in black, cause real men only wear black.
That’s right today, June 8th, is our official birthday- which makes FishingFury.com 7 years old! Sometimes its hard to believe how far we’ve come since that first year fishing Mystery Lake (video, video), Toronto Islands, and even my short trip to Key West. In our second year, in 2005, we branched out further bringing the fury to La Paz, Mexico (more, more, more, more, video) and the British Virgin Islands (more, more, video) and still had some time to come back and target trophy pike in Little Vermilion Lake (video).
Since Clive and I started this blog we always knew we wanted better things, and that if we worked hard enough we could eventually take ourselves there on our own merit. Several milestones later years of work started paying off with interviews by several newspapers, writing for a Fins + Skins magazine, and even working with Tim Cherry and Jamie Pistili of Big City Fishing to name a few of the most exciting.
Even the site layout and design has grown so much over the last few years, how many people here remember the original PHP-Nuke design from 2004?
My what a long way we’ve come… And there’s no stopping here!
Last week we quietly passed another great milestone here at Fishing Fury- 5,000 comments! To celebrate I thought we’d give away some stuff to our awesome users who helped us reach the 5,000 mark. Tell us in the comments below why you love our blog for your chance to win and we’ll choose two winners at random this weekend. Comment as many times as you like!
New posts will appear below this one until we choose the winners this weekend.
Leave your comments below for your chance to win either a Quantum hat or Frogg Toggs visor! Both prizes have been treated with Kiwi Camp Dry Heavy Duty Water Repellent, so they’re ready to hit the water the moment you open them!
Our randomly chosen winners are…. Woody and Mike! Sammy was a winner but he said he didn’t need a hat and even after emailing him to say that he won he said we should select another winner, so we did! Congrats to all and thank you for joining in our celebration!
