Fishing with Dad! We need help.
Guest Blog by: Tim Emery 2/21/2014
Hello FishExplorer.com members,
Among other parts of my life, I am the East Slope Fishing Representative on The Wildlife Council of Colorado Parks and Wildlife
. Our mission is to manage the $.75 sur charge from your hunting and fishing licenses. We're charged with educating the general public about the benefits of hunting and fishing in Colorado. Have you seen or heard the “Hug a Hunter” or “Hug an Angler” commercials? The Council is responsible for creating those.
Please read the invitation below. Contact Ashley if you want to be a part of it.
Do you have a great memory fishing with your dad? As part of a new fishing recruitment campaign to encourage dads to take their kids fishing, we are shooting videos of men 35-50 years old to capture those memories. For those folks who will be in the area of the 6060 Broadway office next Wednesday, February 26 in the Big Horn Room, or who have time to drop by, please read further.
If you are interested in telling your story in a short video, contact Ashley Roybal at Ashley@thinkpilgrim.com. She will work with you to schedule a time.
We are looking for 35 – 50 year old men who have great stories of times spent fishing with their Dads. If you have a story you love to tell about a time your Dad took you fishing, we want to hear it! The question we’ll be asking is… What is your best memory you have fishing with your dad? Watch this example video to get an idea of what we’re looking for: Video Link
If you have a piece of memorabilia that goes with your story, like a photo of you and your dad or an old fishing pole, bring it in! It would really help visually illustrate the story and create the “moment” we’re looking for. Everyone that participates will get a Hug an Angler t-shirt and bumper sticker.
If interested please contact Ashley@thinkpilgrim.com
I would love to see everybody be a part of this! FishExplorer members are the key to promoting fishing in our great state!
Tim now lives in Denver after ten years of being a fly fishing guide and shop manager in Vail. Tim has become an urban fisherman focusing on fishing within an hour of Denver. He uses his fly rod to fish for anything he has time for and he fishes often. You can follow him on Twitter @TimFishmanEmery or like him on Facebook.
Tim's day job is a Real Estate agent and property manager in the Denver area. Rumor has it, he will buy you a fly rod if you buy or sell a house with him!

This is great, thanks for sharing it with us Tim. That'd be cool to have a few FxR members participate.
