Treasure Hunt Details:
Step 1: 24 decorative letters have been hidden all over the TCO website:  To get you started, below is one now for free

Each letter will be in this same font style (type face).  You must look everywhere and find all of these so you can get to the next step.  They can be hidden anywhere, take your time to look on every page.

Step 2: Once you find all 24 letters, you can start decoding.  These 24 letters make up a quote, but solving the quote is only part of it.  The quote will lead you to the winning answer.  The first person to submit the full quote and the final answer wins all of the prizes I mentioned earlier.

Step 3: When you solved the puzzle, click here to submit your answer

This is the ONLY way you can submit your answer and the winner will be determined by the time stamp receipt on this email. Only one submission per person per day.

Be sure to submit:

•The unscrambled letters in a complete quote

•The Final Answer

So, why did we create this contest.  Well, times have been tough for everyone.  No matter what any of us do we cannot completely escape the challenges of this last year.  All of us here at TCO were inspired by the amount of people that used fly fishing and other outdoor activities as an escape.  We wanted to give something back.  

This contest costs nothing to enter, you don’t even need to leave your house to play.  It’s for fun and it’s for the challenge, it’s simply a way to get our minds off the current situation for a short time. So, thank you for your support during all of this and we hope you enjoy our treasure hunt. 

**There are no runners up or second place prizes.  Anyone on our mailing list can play except for TCO Staff and Family.  Industry people, reps and competing shops please feel free to play too.  Remember, you have to sign up for the mailing list on our homepage otherwise you cannot win. I wish you all the best of luck, please have fun with this, share the challenge with your friends and family and remember, the outdoors is there for you no matter what happens, it’s our pure escape and it’s what brings us all together.
