It's time for OPST's First Annual "Show Us Your Media" Contest!

 It’s time for our First Annual OPST Show Us Your Media Contest! Send us your photos or videos of fish you’ve caught with our line systems, of you casting of fishing our systems, or of flies you intend to use with our systems for a chance to win one of 1st through 4th place prizes and be featured on our social media platforms as well! 

As a company, our main goal was to bring a product to customers that makes their time in the water more enjoyable.  In the process of meeting that goal, we often receive awesome testimonials from customers who are very much enjoying their Pure Skagit experience; either on the one-handed or two-handed rod scene, or through our tying video’s and product’s.  We want to take that one step further and see what you’re up to and where, and share it with our other customers!  Submissions will all be considered for feature on our social media platforms as well as for prizes.      


“Here’s How It Works:”

Send photo or video submissions of how you’re using our products, what you’re catching, or what flies you’re using into with the subject “media contest”.  Please include as much information as possible, like rod and Commando Line System used, type of fish, area caught if possible (please don’t blow up secret spots!), presentation style, fly type, etc.  Video’s should be no longer than 60 seconds for social media purposes.  Video’s longer than will still be considered for FB posts (and a Viewer Choice Award if we choose to go that route).  Media must be the submitter’s original work (See the rule’s below for more clarification).  For Fly Submissions:   Please include a few different angles of your fly if possible, and don’t forget a step-by-step instructional (as simple as possible) if you’d like your submission to be tied by others!  We would also like to know what Commando System you plan on fishing the fly, where and for what.  Extra bonus points for flies using OPST Brand tying products (drabs, saddles, shanks, hooks, shank chuck, dubbing spinner, etc.).
