Get Those Competitive Juices Flowing...

In case you hadn't heard, Trout Unlimited is hosting a tour in southwest Montana for a handful of lucky outdoor bloggers. And, in order to be one of the four lucky bloggers on the tour, anyone interested must first join the Outdoor Blogger Network and enter a writing contest.
It's worth the effort ... trust me. The four lucky winners will also need to get themselves to Montana–beyond that, TU will handle all expenses at the rustic but beautiful Elk Lake Resort for three nights starting July 23. Evenings will be spent around a campfire, and days will be spent in and around Centennial Valley, where bloggers will see some great country and some of the work Trout Unlimited and its partners are doing to protect, reconnect and restore some great fish and wildlife habitat.

Oh, and did I mention the fishing? With a number of lakes and streams within close proximity, TU won't leave the four fortunate OBN-ers hanging. The fishing in the Centennial Valley is legendary, with opportunities to catch west slope cutthroat trout, Arctic grayling, rainbow trout, brown trout and brook trout. 
It will be a grand adventure by any measure, and worth the effort to enter the contest and jot down some of your finest fishing memories in hopes of creating new ones in the heart of Montana's trout country. 

And, even if you don't win, you'll get the chance to wear a sweet TU ballcap–I'll personally make sure of it. 

Good luck. Get to writing...


  1. What a wonderful opportunity TU and OBN have given the OBN bloggers...How I love Montana!! Some of my best memories... Looks like there are some awesome posts already up in the running! And who wouldn't want a TU cap??? : )
