Ornaments, tinsel, reindeer antlers on cars, and the same three songs covered by everyone from Frank Sinatra to Springsteen.  Sadly, in today’s consumer hungry economy that could mean it was anytime from October 31st to January the 15th, so it can be hard to tell when the holidays are truly here.

The REAL sign that the holidays are among us is the annual announcement from Cameron at The Fiberglass Manifesto that the “12 Days of Christmas” daily drawings have begun, the sure sign that the festivities are here, or at least just around the corner.

This year The Manifesto’s featuring prizes solely from vendors that make all (or some) of their product in the U.S.A. I’m happy to say that some of our favorites (Howler Bros., Simms, Loon Outdoors and more) have all taken part and the prizes look to be epic.

So if you’re not sure if you’ve been naughty or nice, head to The Fiberglass Manifesto blog now,  where luckily they don’t judge. Do it quick though, day one is almost over!

Howler Bros. is on a roll lately with all kinds of sweet products being released almost bi-weekly. Within 10 minutes of receiving an email announcing the Paradise Gaucho i had ordered mine (receiving 8-10 drooling comments on my first day wearing it) and just days later was informed that these sweet ass Howler Camp Mugs were also available (and quickly jumping to the top of my x-mas list).

If you want your best shot at grabbing some of this awesome gear be sure to sign up for their email lists (at the bottom of their website) because a lot of this stuff is going quick, and for good reason, it’s unique and it rocks.  Howler’s killing it, and as fellow Austin, TX fly-fishers we couldn’t be more proud.

Okay, here’s the deal, this sight is NOT about big fish and big egos, but it just so happens that some of the nicest people we know are catching big fish.  To this end we’d love to introduce a new ongoing “contest” where the only prizes are bragging rights and the occasional schwag i can round up from reps or dark back alleys.

More than anything this new page (found right below the title bar above) will be a spot for anyone that wants to send in photos of any fish that they feel are their own personal best, regardless of species or size.  In my mind a heroic sunfish could easily win, but really it’s up to you and your fellow readers as i’ll have no say in it.  I promise not to be hard ass about submissions, but until i get a grip on what i might have to sift through i ask the following;

1)  They are catches from the current month (or at the most two).

2) One submission a month so choose wisely and send it to

3) All submissions should include species caught, a rough location, anglers name, photo credit.

3) At the end of the month we’ll shoot out a poll, let folks vote and announce the winner you’ve chosen.

More details as we iron out the kinks! Instagram, Facebook and Twitter at #foalcontest for your entry!
