It's Not Just the Catch - June Contest by Loon

Congratulations Connor R! The folks at Loon Outdoors have selected your image as winner for this round of  It's Not Just the Catch. Get stoked for the assembly of prize items that will be heading your way and thanks to all who have taken time to describe and share what they love and appreciate about clean water and healthy fisheries.

Trout Lake Siesta. The location is under a tree next to Trout Lake in Yellowstone National Park. After a nice hike up to Trout Lake with my wife and three month old daughter, it was time for a relaxing nap in the shade overlooking this beautiful view.    We set up the eno, had a bite to eat and rested up before heading down to the lake to try our luck with the native Yellowstone Cutthroat Trout! The nap extended our day trip up at the Lake and was well worth the hike!

We are stoked to continue our photo contest that deemphasizes photographing and posting every fish that's landed. Instead, we want to see the greatest parts of your time on the water that wasn't the catch. 

For the rest of June, show us your best images of what clean water provides for you. It could be quenching your thirst right from a New Zealand stream, an epic hatch on your favorite trout stream, or simply gazing deep into the waters you love to fish. Show us what you love and appreciate about clean water.

We'll begin posting entries to a slide show here at the bottom of this post. Have fun out there and be grateful!

#KEEPEMWETCHALLENGE Week 1 Winner

Week 1 of #keepemwetchallenge is in the books and our winner is @calicarpin who thanks to the good folks at @umpquafeathermerchants will be getting a dozen barbless flies in a wooden Umpqua box.
Each day we saw incredible images of wet tiny fish, and each day it would have been easy to pick a winner. Thanks to all of you who have participated and represented the basic steps we can take so fish we release have the best chance of survival. Cheers to you and stay tuned for Week 2 criteria and prize coming up next!
