I’ve been participating in something called the “One fish per month challenge” on the Southeast Fly Fishing Forum for a few years now. It’s a fairly simple challenge that just requires you catch a fish with a fly rod each month of the year. It’s not too hard to keep up with as long as the weather and the fish cooperate. After all I can usually find/make time to fly fish at least once a month. Last year it evolved into trying for a different species each month of the year. I made it to December, then couldn’t catch something different, what a bummer. This year I was able to accomplish my goal though, so below is 12 months of 12 different species on the fly. Not too many exotics this year, shoot, everything except the coldwater trout were caught in Louisiana, but that’s a testament to the diversity we have here. Now that this is accomplished, I’ll have to mix it up next year, maybe a different fresh and salt species each month. Or how about a different species every day of one month – that would be tough. I’m open to suggestions….
