The purpose of the Flyathlon is to get people out onto creeks that they wouldn’t ordinarily fish to have fun and raise money for native fish-related projects (through Colorado Trout Unlimited and the Western Native Trout Initiative). The winner of this event is the person who comes in with the fastest time in conjunction with the largest fish. A tag-line of "run, fish, beer" was too good to pass up so I will enter in the first running event of my life. While running has never been a strength of mine, I have always been pretty good at drinking beer and have loved fishing since I could hold a rod. Please help me to raise money for this amazing event and assist in saving some of the beautiful streams which make Colorado great.
