#OptOutside 2020 - Clean Up your HOMEWATERS this Black Friday & WIN KILLER PRIZES!

Ivan Orsic / Nov 10, 2020

For the fourth straight year, Trouts Fly Fishing (both the Denver & Frisco locations) is following in the footsteps of our outdoor industry friends and will be closed for business on Black Friday - November 27th, 2020. Join us and spend Black Friday cleaning up your favorite fishery, instead of jockeying for position at your favorite big-box retailer.

Things will look a little different this year, but we're still excited to get out on the water and clean up two of our favorite local fisheries: the South Platte and the Blue River.

How will things look different you ask? Well, to start, it is 2020. So, we are bypassing the traditional group cleanup and fish shindig that we've come to know and love. We know, we'll miss cleaning up the river with all of you. But, that doesn't mean this year's #OptOutside cleanup won't be any less awesome! To bump up the awesome scale, we're making it a come one come all kind of party on Instagram!

On the weekend of Black Friday (Friday 11/27 through Sunday 11/29), get out on your favorite local fishery, collect trash, and post a picture of it on Instagram using the hashtag #TroutsOptOutside2020. The weirder the trash the better. Using that hashtag will enter you to win one of five killer prizes. No matter the fishery or location - you're eligible to win. That's right, whether you're the Front Range local or you follow us from afar, you can get out, do some good, and give yourself a chance to win something cool.

What are the prizes you ask? Well, we've got some cool things in the works with some of our favorite brands. Once we have those prize packs locked in, we'll announce it on the blog, so stay tuned!

We can't wait to see your collected trash and we hope that you #OPTOUTSIDE with us on Black Friday. Don't forget to use the #TroutsOptOutside2020 and good luck!


Date: Friday, November 27th, 2020
Goal: Collect Trash, Post it on Instagram using #TroutsOptOutside2020, Win a Killer Prize!

We can't wait to see all the trash you've picked up on the river for Black Friday 2020!
