Picture worth $1000
Ever since one of my kids won the FPQ tournament in 2008, I've been entering free fishing contests on a regular basis. I was hoping luck may strike again, and it did, just in time for my birthday too.
Sometime over the summer, I entered an Outdoor Canada picture contest, using some pics I had taken while fishing with the family. A couple days before my birthday, I get a call from Mr. Bob Sexton at Outdoor Canada, telling me that the picture won 1st place in the contest. I was delighted to find out that the prize is a $1000 gift certificate as Basspro shops.
I received the card today, and have already started ordering items with it. I'll be stocking up on some of my usual lures and terminal tackle, and splurging on some fancier reels and gear for myself, as well as for my dad and son that appear in the picture, which will appear in their winter issue.
Couldn't ask for a better birthday present.
I thank God for the win and Outdoor Canada for the generous gift.
