Today the Outdoor Blogger Network is proud to announce an opportunity for four OBN Bloggers to experience a fantastic fishing adventure. I can’t wait to read the entries and follow along in July with the winners. So what in the world am I talking about? Read on and then get to writing…
Trout Unlimited’s Sportsmen’s Conservation Project is hosting four OBN bloggers this summer for a tour of Montana’s Centennial Valley, where the fishing is unbeatable and the marvelous Montana scenery never quits.
The tour is based out of Elk Lake Resort, and bloggers will have the run of the place when they’re not in the field fishing and learning about coldwater fisheries conservation in southwest Montana.
So, which four OBN bloggers? Great question.
First, some prerequisites:
- You must be available from July 23 to July 26
- You must be able to get to Montana
- You should be able to hike on moderate terrain and fish backcountry water—nothing extreme or dangerous, but we will stretch our legs a bit
- You must have an active blog and be willing to blog about your adventure on the spot (yep, there’s Internet access at the resort!).
If you don’t meet all of those requirements, you won’t need any more information.
If you’re able and interested, though, it’s time to get to writing!
The Blog Writing Topic:
Tell us about your favorite trout fishing trip, no matter where it was, who was there, or if you even caught a thing. Include in your blog post why you think coldwater trout and salmon habitat deserves to be protected and restored.
When you have published your submission, come back to the OBN and submit your link to the ‘linky system’ below. TU will pick 10 winners, all of who will get a free ball cap mailed to them. The top four will need to pack their bags and get to Montana!
TU will handle all of your expenses upon arrival—you just need to get to Elk Lake Resort and be ready to fish and learn something about TU’s work in “the Last, Best Place.” Make sure to include Trout Unlimited in your post!
Contest runs from today, June 7th through 1 p.m. Mountain time, June 16th. Good Luck everyone!
