The Orvis “20 Days in September” Challenge – Part 3

Last month, Orvis challenged anglers to log 20 days on the water during the month of September. They didn’t have to be full days, just a legitimate attempt at catching fish. Anglers were asked to take a picture from each outing and post it to the Orvis Facebook page with the hashtag #OrvisFlyFishing and #20inSep.

I last wrote about my progress about half way through September, at which point I had logged just six days on the water. I knew I had to put in significant effort if I were to even come close to twenty days on the water. So here is how the second half of September went.

Fishing day: #10
September 30
Location: Float down Willow Creek, Alaska

I was on the oars all day so the only picture I took was from the post float weiner roast.

As you can see I went fishing ten time in September but I’m not complaining because ten days of fishing in one month is a lot for me and more than most folks I know. I may not of completed the challenge but I am very happy with the results.
