    So in celebration of summer, I've put together a game for anyone who wants to participate.

    So basically it goes like this....

    The first person to successfully photograph and upload to this thread, the 10 items on the list will win an All About the Fly - Fly Box with a Dozen meaty streamers tied by me, packed inside.

    All photos must be original, (no searching google images). Cheaters will be beat by ibn, with a pipe wrench. :rofl:

    THE LIST

    01. A fishing related sticker on a vehicle
    02. Eight river rocks stacked up
    03. A group of inner tubers (rubber hatch)
    04. A discarded beer can or bottle
    05. Any kind of reptile
    06. A fly shop employee @ work
    07. Any type of live Nymph in your hand
    08. A sunrise at a river/lake/beach
    09. Dragon Fly Adult
    10. A bag of trash you picked up from around the water.

    I tried to make the list possible for everyone no matter what
    their location.

    Good Hunting :beer2:

    That should be an easy one for me, sometimes when i cant go fishing, i tie on a tiny griffiths gnat, and go casting in my backyard. My nicest dragon yet was a nice 6 incher. It can be pretty fast action sometimes too.

    So basically im in, i doubt i'll win since i cant get out as much as most people. But theres nothing wrong with trying.:thumb:

    Ohh and would you consider a frog a reptile?

    Great idea Yard. Insidiously designed to clean up the stream. As Kirk sez "BRILLIANT".
    I just need someone to help a technology challenged winner (wiener) learn how to post a picture. I can't even get these cute little icons in my posts.

    :ray1:

    How about a picture of a newt? It kinda looks like a lizard.

    I can't believe no one has completed this yet! A box of Backyard streamers is not something to take lightly! Here's some motivation for you lazy bastards.

    I know a frog is an amphibian, but i have some in my outdoor aquarium. It was worth a try though.

    Thanks Yard, much appreciated.
    Though I work with computer all day long but I'm not a techie. We have staff that manage the system. It's a tool for me, not a hobby. Consequently, I'm challenged often.
    Thanks again.

    Do these have to be new pics taken since you posted this game, or can we dig through our own old pics?

    I have everything but the tube hatch. It was too cold this weekend. All I saw were rafts, kayaks, and pontoon boats...
