Due to an apathetic response (and lack of salmon season the past couple years in CA, where a lot of dark fish come from), our Smoker of the Year Contest kinda fizzled last season. Here at HQ, there had been talk of shit-canning the whole thing, but I just can’t let it go! I mean, who doesn’t love a good pic of a nasty fish?
So, to launch the 2010 Contest, this morning I went down to the woodshed and dusted off our mascot, Smokie the Smoker and posted him. Man, did I miss that ol’ sore tail and it’s great to see him back on the site. Don’t let him down, people…step on up to the plate and mail in those photos of you with some dark, skanky fish…you know: the “smokers.”
This time around, we’re going to keep it kinda informal…without a monthly winner. At the end of the year, you’ll get to decide who wins the coveted “Harrison Ibach” perpetual trophy and take Smoker of the Year honors.
I’ll make an official online entry form soon, but in the meantime, simply send me an EMAIL and I’ll let ya know where to send the pic.
