You will have until Wednesday of that week to answer the question, and then first thing Thursday morning, we will post the randomly chosen winner with a correct answer. We will then get in touch with you to send you some sweet Sage swag including a limited edition ONE hat, Sage Buff, stickers, and a copy of Paid In Full DVD. See this week’s trivia question below.

The 1/3 of an employee sells Sage flavored hot dogs at lunch that are cooked on the South Fork of the Snake River bank each day and flown to the Sage Factory to motivate the Rod Builders to keep making trout slaying rods that us SE Idaho guys love to fish. He’s only 1/3 of a guy, because he spends most of the day ripping lips on the company dime
