A 20 Question Experience


I've looked up to Chris Hunt from the first time I met him in Montana. From his height, to his passion, his sense of humor, to his love for the outdoors and the natural world, to his ability to welcome in a stranger and make him feel like one of the pack, it all adds up to one thing...big. Especially during spritzer season. Who am I to turn down some good old fashion hospitality?

I'd like to thank Chris for the opportunity to go against better judgement and answer his "Twenty Questions". A weekly installment that is always entertaining and insightful, especially considering the cast of characters in which he interviews. It's pretty impressive.

Despite interviewing the likes of me, Chris does great work for an organization that is near and dear to my heart, Trout Unlimited. He works as their Director of Communications, delivering a hard message, while wading through a political landscape that is dicey to say the least. And he does it for something that we all appreciate and love, trout. Pretty cool.

And when Chris isn't wrapped up fighting the good fight, he can be found either on the river, shooting pesky birds, or writing on his blog "Eat More Brook Trout". I always picture Chris with a smile on his face, cold drink in hand, and a witty comment to back it all up. I'm lucky to call him a friend.

"The Eradicator"

And as Chris might implore you to do, "Save the west...eat a brook trout".

I hope you enjoy the interview.

Cheers!

  2. You handled yourself very well in the interview. No flubs. No, not being able to name a newspaper you read, or poorly constructed tangential statements about foreign countries, or nipple slips.... That we know of... Seriously, nice work. it was fun to read.

    1. d nash- Thanks! Although, doing an interview from afar, who's to know if there wasn't a nipple slip or anything else that might be construed as embarrassing...

  7. Just another skill-challenged fly fisherman answering silly questions. One would hope that this Chris Hunt character could find something better to do with his time, and barring that, hopefully he can at the very least engage us with more amusing interview subjects.

  9. Sean, just read the 20 Q's and it's safe to say that dude loves you and for good reason. Great read.

    I'll guess you received no money for the spot, but when you die, on your deathbed, you will receive total consciousness.
