Every Day In May

Re-blogged from How Small A Trout

Every 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. hmm, interesting. i might have to give this a try. like i am not busy enough :)

  2. Haha, I know the feeling. I am gonna give it a go even though I will be out of civilization for about a week. I am gonna jot my posts down on a tab and write them up when I get home.

  3. Just a link, quote, or dog picture counts, people -- just take a second or two to express yourself and then get back to life!
