It’s easy to say we’ve all set out to accomplish a challenging task at least once in our life. It may have taken us to new places, made us realize we had more in us, etc. That is exactly what Terry Myers set out to do a few years back. Living just above the banks of the Salmon River in Idaho with her husband Jerry on their ranch, she is an avid fly fisher. However, caring for their ranch considering they didn’t get electricity on it until recently takes up a lot of time, but for Terry when the steelhead start running in the river she darts off to her local waters and the chores get picked up by Jerry.

One day she decided to start off on a quest, a very challenging quest that started out as a little idea. She wanted to try and catch a wild steelhead on a different river each month. It sat on the back burner slowing heating up until one day the proverbial pot boiled over and she pitched the idea to Jerry. This quest would prove to be quite difficult. Ready to see what came of this idea?

There is only one reason in the world to go fishing: to enjoy yourself. Anything that detracts from enjoying yourself is to be avoided.

Watch below to see the story of the adventure whilst learning about how changing climate is impacting steelhead and many other species of fish. WARNING it’s an hour long one this time. When you’re done let us know what quest or challenge you would like to complete in the near future. We’d love to see what ideas you have cooking!
