Conservation Hawks, the producer of one of the more popular video features in this year’s Fly Fishing Film Tour, has a deal for anglers: Watch their video and earn the chance to win big prizes.

Convergence is a powerful 12-minute video addressing the family, fly fishing, and the effects of climate change on the sports we love. The video features Hilary Hutchinson of TroutTV fame and her kids (and her trout dog Jolene) as well as Orvis CEO Perk Perkins, his son and granddaughter amongst others. Beautifully shot on waters of the Northern Rockies, Convergence blends stunning cinematography, some tasteful ‘fish porn,’ some touching family moments, and a simple message about the need for awareness of the growing problem of climate change and its effects on cold-water fisheries.

To help ensure the message gets out to a broad audience, Conservation Hawks offers a new enticement to people to watch Convergence. They’ve launched a Prize Giveaway for viewers. The rules are pretty simple:
