Every Day In May

Every Day in MayEvery Day in May is a blogging throw-down to all fishing and outdoor bloggers, issued by How Small A Trout, A Fresh Start, and Memoirs of a Flygirl.

CHALLENGE: POST TO YOUR BLOG EVERY DAY IN MAY. Mayfly hatches, spring runoff, spawning fish, tulips, debauched May Day pagan rituals—blog it all. Blog to learn, blog to remember, blog to forget. Document May in images, words, quotes, links, whatever, wherever. We’re providing prompts for each day, but feel free to interpret, misinterpret, reject, or improvise on these themes. To accept the challenge and pass it on, reblog this kick-off post and graphic, then tag your May posts with “every day in May”. We’ll post a list of everyone who guts it out until June.

The prompts:

1. May Day
2. home waters
3. current
4. tying
5. fishing
6. praying
7. working
8. hatching
9. grinning and laughing
10. conservation
11. waders
12. something completely different
13. Mother’s Day
14. rod
15. line
16. leader
17. fly
18. fish, fish, fish
19. more fish
20. greenery
21. bugs
22. runoff
23. safety first
24. memory
25. shoreline
26. lessons learned
27. bucket list
28. news
29. inspiration/aspiration
30. fish philosophy
31. achievement

Don’t worry if you see this and May is already here; there are no late fees nor penalties for early withdrawal.

To all you who blog about other stuff like knitting or wine or fancy mice: feel free to copy this idea and do your own Every Day In May!

  1. Wow. Going for it. Look forward to what you come up with.

    • You should join us — you guys post good stuff almost every day anyhow!

      • We’ll try to keep up. Now that Brighton Resort is closed a lot of us are taking a few weeks off for some fun. Im sure it will be fishing.

        If your close enough to the Weber between Rockport and Echo the afternoon Caddis hatch has been amazing. You should hit it up. The flows are supper low right now so the fish are going wild.

    This is a really cool concept and I’m sure I won’t be able take all of these subjects on (time constraints and screaming children and all), but I bet it’ll be fun trying.
    Check it out if you haven’t yet!
