maybe I am blind, but the part that's difficult here is to figure where your contest is. That "other thread" link takes me to post a new thread in this forum, with no context.

The contest isn't a sticky here, I looked in announcements, nothing there either. Not on home page. Interested to see the rules.

I'm thinking the next photo contest should be along the lines of a "Trout Porn" theme. Thoughts?

Didn't propose a schedule, but for sure I'm suggesting that we do this next year. I should have been more specific.

I like the idea. I'm just trying to figure out how to get an HST sticker to stick to a fish, or how will it wear an HST patch :D

I know the trout doesn't have to wear the swag, but it was an interesting thought.

Russ, maybe we could add a hook to the patch and use it as a lure. What trout could resist? :D
