2013 TFM Spotting Contest

Its back...

2013 T.F.M. Spotting Photo Contest

I am excited to announce that Kabuto Rods is sponsoring the T.F.M. Spotting Photo Contest for this year and has offered up a finished fiberglass fly rod of the first place finalist's choosing and then fiberglass fly rod blanks to the second and third place finalists for the year.  Three excellent prizes for this year long contest.    

Kabuto Rods has been a long time supporter of The Fiberglass Manifesto and more or less gave me the idea to start the T.F.M. Fly Rod Loan Program by sending both an 8053 and 7033 which have been around the United States several times over each over the last couple years.  I own several Kabuto Rods blank builds, which are part of my personal collection, and in my mind they are some of the finest contemporary glass being offered today.

I want to thank Kabuto Rods again for being a part of this year long contest on The Fiberglass Manifesto.

1. To participate you must submit a photo wearing a T.F.M. t-shirt, hoodie, sun mask, or cap.  These photos can be fly fishing or lifestyle related.  The most interesting T.F.M. Spotting posts tell a story and sending along a few other photos that help tell that story make the posts even better.

2. Don't have a piece of T.F.M. apparel but want in on the T.F.M. Spotting Photo Contest?  You can order your T.F.M. swag through the T.F.M. APPAREL page.

3. Submit your T.F.M. Spotting photo and a few lines of copy to accompany it by email tothefiberglassmanifesto@gmail.com.

4.  I will post your T.F.M. Spotting submission on the website during the month that it was submitted.

5. There will be a email poll to determine the finalist for each month of the year.  At the end of 2013 there will be twelve finalists which will be voted on to determine the top three winners.

6.  Each monthly finalist will receive a T.F.M. t-shirt of their choosing.

I am looking forward to the excellent T.F.M. Spotting submissions for this year.

If you have any questions please send an email to thefiberglassmanifesto@gmail.com.
