Let the 2017 Grander Slam games begin!
The week long contest kicked off on Friday the 16th at 6 PM with a run down of the rules at Bob Mitchell’s Fly Shop. The rules will clear and simple – Don’t be a dick.
Wasting no time this weekend, I did quite a bit of fishing. I am traveling to Sioux Falls, South Dakota for a work training thing, and I’ll be gone until Friday the 23rd…the day the contest ends. **UPDATE** I am not a smart man. I was kindly reminded the contest ends Sunday 6/25. That gives me more time to fish. 🙂 Thanks, Rhea!
It’s Monday morning now, and I am pretty much done fishing until this coming Friday when I return. I’ll have a few hours before the final buzzer and I’m hoping to knock off a few more fish, but we’ll see. For now, below you’ll find what I’ve caught. I’m positive that this will not be enough to win it, but whatever, it was fun!
