Flyathlon

By The Dirtbag Diaries   |   Jun 15, 2018 June 15, 2018

There are a lot of serious problems in this world, but the solutions don’t always have to be serious. Fly fisherman and trail runner Andrew Todd channeled his concern for Colorado’s native trout and the watersheds that support them into the creation of a joyful, irreverent event: The Flyathlon.

The rules:

  1. Run 10-miles
  2. Catch a fish
  3. Don’t be a jack-donkey
  4. No fish in your Camelbak that you brought from somewhere else.

Today, we join producer Cordelia Zars—and a group of Flyathletes—on Gunnison, Colorado’s Lake Fork River.

Learn more and register for a Flyathlon at flyathlon.com or check out Andrew’s non-profit at runningrivers.org.
