After weeks of searching, narrowing it down, and voting, the results of the Before You knew Better Photo Contest are in.
And the winner of the Moldy Chum King of Unfortunateness goes to… Sam Cady with this classic pre-keepemwet photo titled, “Lipping Brown.” Sam, who is now our official hero of horribleness, will receive a custom built Sage LE, the self-proclaimed and definitive “before Sage knew better rod”. In addition to this unpolished, yet priceless treasure, Sam has also won a Sage X rod of his choice – a rod Sage made when they knew wayyyy better.
2nd Place Winner
The “if you’re not first, you’re last” Award goes to Holly Dixon for her Fish & Fashion entry. Holly, who is officially our first place loser, will receive a SPECTRUM LT reel from the fine folks at Sage.
3rd Place Winner
And last but certainly not least, Brian O’Keefe has finished in a close third, meaning he will receive the most unfortunate fishing clothing item we can find from the depths of the dark web.
Thanks to everyone who voted and submitted entries to this contest. And big thanks to Sage for their generous support and for providing some sweet prizes for our winners.
