Around the Outdoor Blogosphere:

Fly Fishing Journal

Fly Fishing Journal

A Year on the Fly  is doing a little giveaway on his blog. He recently reviewed a set of Lightload Towels and now he’s giving away a (new) set of them.

Beyond the towels, if you are a fly fisherman then take a gander at the picture I posted <~~over there. Joel is an amazing artist and he’s created a special Fly Fishing Journal from his art prints.

Visit his post: Tying Journal & A Giveaway to get in on the lightload towels and for some custom fly fishing journal drooling (ordering)

Fly Fishing Giveaway

FlyFishilicious Fun

Up next, FlyFishilicious  is currently having a party of sorts on her blog marked with fly tying and giveaways you don’t want to miss out on.

Check out: Tie it. Love it: Higa’s SOS & BIG Giveaway too and get in for your chance at the fun stuff!

In Case you needed another reason to support Harnesses for Hunters,  you should know that if you check out this post: ATS Outdoors Supports Harnesses for Hunters with a Giveaway! you’ll see you have the chance to win some very cool broadheads through your support and donations. I like that win-win situation!

A Last Note: I do my best to keep up with the comings and goings of over a 1,000 blogs, but I have no doubt I’m missing some great giveaways and such that I could be promoting on the OBN Friday Notes.

To be perfectly honest, the majority of my blog visits (and giveaway discoveries) are via the Outdoor Bloggers who use the Community News Post feature. For me, it’s a RSS Feed I can keep up with…

Even then, I can miss good things! If any of you have a giveaway on your blog, you can help me out–anytime–by simply sending me a contact.

Have a Great Outdoor Weekend Everyone!

    I’m glad I’m not the only one struggling to keep up with all the great outdoor blogs. The list of outdoor blogs I read grows every day thanks OBN giving a place for all of us to come together and to find each other.
