A Fly Caught Photo Challenge on Instagram

Today is the start of our first Fly Caught Photo Challenge and we couldn't be more excited!  Our reasoning for this challenge is simple….we want to see something a little different and more unique from ourselves and our friends in the fly fishing space when it comes to social media content.  Because lets be honest, over the last few years Instagram/Facebook has become increasingly saturated with the “same old same old” when it comes to fly fishing photos/videos.  Shoot, we are just as guilty of this as anyone…so we certainly aren't pointing fingers.  But, while we are a fan of a lot of the current fly fishing photos/videos, we really want to start pushing ourselves (and hopefully others) to try and stretch for ever more unique posts.  So we figured a structured photo challenge with some loose “inspirational prompts” might spark a little creativity for us all.  Personally, we are going to start trying to adding a little context to our photos, show the hidden parts of fly fishing, and hopefully spotlight some of the little things that make this sport such an addicting activity.  So, if you are interested in stepping up your game, then please accept our challenge and participate with us in the #flycaughtphotochallenge over on Instagram.  But…if for some reason the desire to push yourself and others to create better photos/videos for all of our timelines isn't enough…how about participating because it could mean a
free Fly Caught “Fly Logo” mug and a free bag of Fly Caught Coffee/Tea!?!
