Father & son to fish 50 states in 50 days
A Virgina Father and Son team are planning a trip to fish 50 trophy waters in 50 days. The trip starts June 13th and has been planned as a way for the two to bond before the son goes off to college.
Our Mission: On June 13th, 2009 my son Taylor (age 17) and I will embark on a nationwide quest, a quest to Fish 50 Trophy Waters in 50 States in 50 Days. Our journey will span 15,000 miles by land, 6,000 miles by air (Alaska and Hawaii), cover 500 miles by water, with no shortcuts.
Our Cause: Our hope is that our adventure, our quest, will inspire others across the nation to realize their dreams for adventure and connect once again. To find and live out that adventure in their lives
The two have obtained an impressive list of corporate sponsors and are using their trip as a fund raiser for several charities including Trout Unlimited. You can pledge anywhere from .05 to $1.00 per fish. No tote bag but contributors get their name into the hat for a five night stay at the Gunnison River Lodge.
