You can see all of the images that were submitted on the TU Facebook page, or look for them in future issues of Trout magazine, on TU.org or elsewhere that TU publishes images. We look forward to utilizing as many of these wonderful photographs as possible, they’re a great reminder of the many reasons we fight for cold, clean water and the places we love to fish.

Congratulations to all of the winners and thanks to everyone who submitted photos or voted for the winners. Thanks also to our generous prize sponsors: R.L. Winston Rod Company, Tenkara USA, Costa Sunglasses and the Montana Fly Company. We’ll be looking forward to next year’s contest!
