OBN Notes ~ 2/25

Clif with a Biggun'

Outdoor Event Spotlight: Clif from the blog Lunker Hunt is an active participant in a great cause you won’t want to miss if you are anywhere in the area. Check out the Hooked on Fishing Park website, or, go visit Clif’s post about this Hooked on Fishing fly fishing event taking place on March 12th in East Peoria.

Clif wrote: “Hooked on Fishing is a not-for-profit park here that gives kids, seniors and handicapped people a chance to fish.  They provide the gear and volunteers to help bait hooks, unhook fish and teach casting.  They can also do educational programs for school field trips.” And we think that’s a great cause to get behind. Plus…the fish are HUGE! Need extra incentive to go? Read Clifs entry from last years event here: Everyone Likes a Push Over Now and Then

And now we really know it’s an event no one wants to miss, Ken G. of the Blog Waterdog Journal sent us an email about this great event too. If you are in the area, sounds like you don’t want to miss it!

Outdoor Blogger Network Company Support: Last week we gave away a Prois Ultra Hoodie for review and this week Prois is giving everyone a sneak peek at their Summer 2011 catalog. Enjoy!

Outdoor Gear Review: MNAngler of the blog Journal of a Minnesota Angler posted his review of the Frabill Pro-Thermal Tip-up Combo here. We have reposted it on the gear review log here. For those of you who are still surrounded by ice, be sure to check out his fantastic review so that you don’t leave home without a Tip-up combo.

Outdoor Fly Tying Designer Reminder: The packages are starting to arrive which means the time is getting near that final deadline for the Montana Fly Company ~ designer contest ~ submissions. You Fly Tyers have a couple of more weeks, so get on it (have fun of course) but we hope you’ve decided on your final designs.  Oh, and watch the time….

Outdoor Blogger Giveaway: John from the blog Noise on the Line is holding a February Blog Love Giveback giveaway on his blog. Looks like some good fishing swag to me so get on over there and throw your name in the hat.

Outdoor Bloggers on Twitter: Check out Mark of the blog Sole Adventure on twitter. His handle is @Soleadventure and he’s always someone who engages and makes the whole twitter deal a win-win situation for social interaction.
