A Season for Giving - #OptOutside & Toy Drive!

Ivan Orsic / Nov 19, 2018

For the second year in a row, we've chosen to #optoutside for Black Friday and give back to a river that gives us so much over the course of the year. Black Friday and rest of the holiday weekend have jumped the shark and we'd love for you to join us outside, on the river, and make a difference on Friday, November 23rd, 2018.

Join us in helping clean up the South Platte at Deckers in the morning - 8 AM at the Sedalia Post Office to be exact. All you need to bring is a couple of able hands and maybe some gloves. We'll have the trash bags, rubber gloves, and take care of the haul at the end of the day. After spending the morning collecting trash, we'll be BBQing, hanging out and fishing the rest of the day out. It's a great way to spend some quality time with family and friends before the hustle and bustle of the holiday season takes over. Check out some of the pictures of the haul we grabbed at last year's #OptOutside River Cleanup.

What's that mean for us in the shop? We'll be closed on Thursday (11.22.18 for Thanksgiving) and Friday (11.23.18 for #optoutside) and we'll reopen with normal business hours for the rest of the holiday weekend. Over the weekend, we'll be hosting our 2nd Annual Trouts Holiday Toy Drive to benefit the children and families of Warren Village. It's a weekend of giving back for us at Trouts and we look forward to seeing you around the shop or on the water this holiday season!

There's something in it for you when you donate. Not only will every toy donated earn you an entry to win a custom Nautilus NV-G 6/7 Fly Reel, but you'll also earn the chance to win two nights and a day of guided fishing at friend of the shop Aaron Abeyta's property ~ Canon Bonito ~ on the Conejos. It's a really amazing property on productive stretch of river that a couple of us have had the chance to fish - check out this photo essay.
