Replacement Pieces and Contest Reminder

First things first, a couple giveaway/contests are underway right now that you may interest you.

1. Tight Lined Tales of a Fly Fisherman: KOVU giveaway - this is the last day to submit an entry. Tell him a story of "a KAVU Day– the adventure that leaves you exhilarated, exhausted and fully alive."  Heads up. This one ends today.

2. OBN: Coleman Giveaway: Share a story how Coleman brought you and your family closer together.

3. OBN: Trout Unlimited Blogger Tour

These are some pretty awesome opportunities if you are into that. 

Secondly, I would like to tell you about my experience with the Tenkara USA replacement process. Troutrageous eluded to the process here as well. After a long day of fishing Minnesota's Driftless area we reached the car and began putting away the gear. It was then, I noticed the missing screw cap on the tenkara rod. The chances of finding it? Nil. It was more important to get back to a hot meal at that point. 

After searching the Tenkara USA site, I found out their replacement policy is pretty spectacular. The prices are low and the shipping time is remarkable. It was just over $7 (that's including shipping) and the cap got to my door in about 36hrs. Crazy.  


  1. There are a lot of cool contests going on right now, it's crazy.

    Good to see a company stay true to good customer service, something that seems to be disappearing with some of the bigger manufacturers.

    1. Sometimes I am torn with whether or not to enter a contest based on the thought that I don't need more stuff. Then I am conflicted with the gear head in me. And finally, I want to support the people and companies doing the giveaways because, if we don't, they will go away... Anyway, thanks for reading! Take care.
