We have a Winner of the First Shad of the Season Contest! Congratulations to Suede Langston for catching and posting the first picture of a shad caught on the fly of the 2017/2018 season! This beauty was caught near the Econ on December 28, 2017. As you can see, the photo clearly shows the fly, fly reel, and official contest token in the picture. Not only is Suede the clear winner, he did so by landing a coveted December shad! Great Job Suede!
The prize below was mailed to you today. I hope the flies help you catch dozens more this shad run!
