Early last week I wrote about Orvis 20 Days in September contest, where the goal is to get twenty days of fishing in this month. The contest stemmed from Orvis editor Phil Monahan’s lack of days on the water in July 2014, so he challenged himself to get out at least 20 times in September. The following year he challenged the Orvis community to do the same and it’s now an annual contest. I decided to participate in the challenge and post my progress here.
So we’re fourteen days into September and here’s how I’m doing…
Fishing Day #1
Location: Big Lake, Alaska
Fishing Day: #2
Location: Montana Creek, Alaska
Fishing day: #3
Location: Lyons, Colorado
Fishing day: #4
Location: Arkansas River, Buena Vista, Colorado
Fishing day: #5
Location: Dolores River, Dolores, Colorado
Fishing day: #6
Location: Rio Grande, San Juan Mountains, Colorado
I really need to step my game up if I’m going to get even close to twenty days. I’m running errands in the big city this afternoon so maybe I’ll stop by Chester Creek for an hour or so.
Look for another update late next week.
