The 2015 raffle is here. This year exciting prizes await the lucky winners along with a twist on the traditional raffle. Named the Raffle 500, it is because that is the final number of tickets to be sold. 500 chances for a total of 15 prizes. In addition, each week before the grand prizes are drawn, there is a secondary chance to win. For a $20 ticket, you are entered to win the following:
First Prize: Smithwick / Bogart 6’9” 2 piece / 2 tip Fantasy Bamboo Fly Rod
A collaborative effort by two highly respected and recognized bamboo rodmakers, Tom Smithwick and Chris Bogart. The rod is The Smithwick Fantasy Rod. Tom has a long history of taking concept rodmaking to another dimension. Meanwhile, Chris is one of those precision engineers who accepts any challenge in rod construction and finishing. Put the two together and it usually ends up with a fantasy that comes to life. The Smithwick Fantasy is truly unique. The rod is a full taper cane rod from tip to butt: two-piece with no cork grip. It is all cane with a one of a kind reel seat attachment into an elegant butt cap. It has a spare tip. It comes with a custom wood case made by craftsman Don Taylor. It is truly a piece of work…a true fantasy.
