The good news this past weekend was that I won a national photography award from the Outdoor Writers Association of America (OWAA). It is a close up photo of a redfish’s tail. Rather than being published in a magazine or newspaper, this one was used on a display in a fly fishing shop in Houston, TX.
Sometime late last year Shimano contacted me about purchasing some G. Loomis related fly fishing photos as they were going to revamp the photos in one of the Fishing Tackle Unlimited (FTU) stores in Houston and include photos and signage in a new store FTU planned on opening in Sugarland, TX.
This was the first time I was eligible to enter photos and stories in OWAA’s Excellence in Craft contests. Now I cannot wait until next year’s contest.
