So to say thank you for your support I'm giving away a few gifts to you. All that's needed is that you comment on this post and then keep your fingers crossed. Your names will be put into a box, and on Saturday Jeanette will pull three names and the winners will be announced here. Good luck and thank you.

  22. Dear Mr. Petrucci,
    I absolutely love your blog. From it I get tying inspiration and so much more. Trout season just ended out here in Montana so your posts will be my chance to fish vicariously through you...
    Happy Holidays! You can put my name in the bucket, and I'll cross my fingers!

  24. Alan, I didn't know you'd written a book! Before I try Amazon, can I buy a copy directly from you? If I win the copy (-: , I'll give one to my brother-in-law.

    Thanks for all you do, and warmest wishes,
    John

  25. + 1 on not knowing about the book , I'll look for it soon. Thank you for all of your efforts in writing this blog. I start each day with coffee and SSR. Mike C.

  26. Thank you for showing how these little beautiful fish live in these little streams that surround us. No need to travel long distances to fish and enjoy the outdoors. It is a shame more people/anglers do not take that little local adventure to explore. Best of all it can be done with the most basic equipment. No need for waders, net or vest/pack. Just a rod, reel and a few simple flies. Great stuff.

  27. Alan,
    Been reading your blog for years with the occasional comment. I'm always amazed at how you get such beautiful closeup photos of those blue line trout with only two hands and manage to return them unharmed to the stream.

  29. Good way to boost the comments ;-) Love this site, Alan. Your photography is always a joy to see. I didn't get much fishing in this year due to illness, but SSR filled in the gap vicariously.
