Fly Tying Contest

Beyond the round bead. 

Since we launched our Nymph-Head® Evolution™ beadheads, we've been seeing more and more photos of amazing flies tied by our customers on social media. We know what we've seen is just the tip of the iceberg, so we're having a fly tying contest. It starts now, with the preliminary rounds ending on Friday, October 9.

Tie flies. Post photos. Win prizes. 

It's easy to enter. Just tie a fly and snap a picture. No complicated, time-consuming signup (unless you win, in which case we'll just need your shipping address to send you your awesome prizes).

  1. Tie a fly with a Nymph-Head® Evolution™ beadhead and take a picture of it. 
  2. Post the photo on Instagram, Facebook, or Twitter, tag us in it (make sure you're following us!), and hashtag #beyondtheroundbead2015.

The Flymen team will vote to choose 1 weekly winner for 8 weeks. Winners will be announced on the Friday of each week. Each winner will be sent a Nymph-Head Evolution prize pack (a $60 retail value!). The criteria for winning can be anything from realism to creativity, so go crazy with your design. As a company based heavily on innovation, we love seeing new ideas.

Past photos count, so if you've already posted some awesome Evolution flies of your own design, you should go back to tag us in them and add the hashtag #beyondtheroundbead2015. One may be a winner! This also means that a photo you post on the first week could be a winner on the eighth week.

The final round.

At the end of the 8 weeks, we will post the 8 winners as finalists for the grand prize. After a 1-week voting period, the grand prize will be given to the tier who tied the fly with the most likes. We will post the official voting to one platform, our Instagram, to make sure there is no double voting.

The grand prize.

Winner's choice: A Fish-Skull® Fly-Tester™ ($285 retail value!) or a Nymph-Head Evolution prize pack of equal value. 

Ready, set, go!

Order some Evolution beadheads or grab some from your local Flymen Dealer and start tying and posting photos now! You have until Friday, October 9!
