Today’s giveaway is a little out of the norm from what is usually around here…
It’s not home related (well…kinda), not food related (well…kinda), and not DIY related (well…kinda). But if you’ve followed me for a while, you know that one of our big hobbies is fishing. We love to fish. I grew up fishing on north Texas lakes with my dad and Matt grew up on the coast fishing the bays and offshore near his home.
Our little house is on an island on the Gulf coast of Texas, with the Gulf in front of us and the bay behind us. It’s also four houses down from a boat ramp, which may or may not have been the main selling point.
So we have a little boat that we plop in whenever we can throughout the year to do a little fishing or canal cruising. We absolutely love to be out on the water and the husband fishes almost every weekend.
Last year I won a giveaway on my friend Tiffany’s blog, ArtSea Chic, to Savlen Sportswear and absolutely fell in love with their items! Mike Savlen is an artist out of Florida who makes amazingly vibrant and action-filled paintings of fishing, freshwater and saltwater, and all things aquatic. You can see more of his work at Savlen Studios. Savlen Sportswear features Mike Savlen’s art on uber-comfortable tees, hats, belts, and accessories.
I picked a sweet billfish shirt and husband picked out a hat (of course). We put our new duds to good use during our fishing trip to Zihuatenejo in December and I got to show off my new shirt with this beauty of a sail!
After that trip, I teamed up with the folks at Savlen to do a giveaway of my own for this week, and a few weekends ago, the husband, brother-in-law, and myself donned our new gear and headed out on the bay since we finally had some sunshine for a little bit down here.
I may not have been good luck on the boat with the boys, given the size of the only fish we landed that day. I do love to fish but I get bored/distracted easily and tend to stop fishing and start eating snacks and scooping up algae, jellyfish, and seagrass critters over the side (#marinebiologistproblems). So often, the husband goes without me, and has much better luck. As shown by this nice redfish from this past weekend.
This all goes to show how much we love our new gear, my shirts are extremely comfortable and the boys fought over who got to wear which hat to wear that day. There are all kinds of products to choose from though, other than shirts and hats, and they have graphics of both saltwater and freshwater species.
gray hat / brown trout belt / key fob / women’s aqua shirt / women’s purple shirt
women’s long sleeve hooded stripe shirt / blue hat / men’s polo / men’s gray salmon long sleeve / men’s long sleeve sailfish shirt
For all my fellow outdoorsy, fishy, or art-loving readers out there, or readers who have an outdoors and fishing fanatic in the family, this giveaway is for you!
