Zen Outfitters Photo Contest Winner


Dear Jaime,
I am flattered with the honor of having won one of the categories in your photo contest. Sounds like your competition was a huge success. Congrats!

      Winner Best Zen Product in Use:
YellowStoneFly 15" Rainbow caught with
      a 78" Olive Dun Furled Leader

Randy & fellow guide with Fall 2014 steelhead.
If you would be so kind as to forward one of your Sinking/Nymphing Trout Leaders for $13.95. I would prefer a 60" in whatever dark color you have available. The remainder of the prize monies I would like to donate to Randy Dingman, a friend and fly fishing guide for ROW Adventures and Silver Bow Fly Shop in Washington and Idaho.

Randy's client w/ "Nice One" winter 2014
I will send to Randy a copy of this email and request that he contact you directly for his leader picks. Last spring I actually introduced Randy to some of your products while fly fishing the NF of the Coeur d'Alene River near Pritchard, ID. I believe yours are absolutely the best furled leaders I have ever seen anywhere.

They are definitely worth the price because they last 4x longer than any other leader out there. Perhaps Randy can introduce your leaders to some of his clients and encourage some sales for you.
PS: Randy is also a great source of Idaho fly fishing photos. Get in touch with him and maybe he will add you to his mailing/text list. By the way, he is a GREAT fly fishing guide as well! Randy's contact information is as follows:
Randy's contact information is:

Hard takes, tight lines and perfect presentations with Jaime's Zen Outfitters furled leaders.
