US Route 20: The Rocky Mountain Fly Highway (Documentary Trailer)

There’s great fishing along US Route 20 in Northeast Ohio where I live, but there is some fantastic fishing with spectacular scenery out west on US 20. Here’s a trailer for a one-hour documentary covering what one can expect fishing a 500 mile stretch of US20,  shot on location in Wyoming, Montana, Idaho and Oregon.

Historic Route 20 Sign Unveiled in Painesville, Ohio

The first “Historic Route 20” sign in the United States was placed outside Rider's Inn in Painesville, Ohio on May 28, 2014. There is a very interesting article in the local newspaper, The News Herald, with information on the effort to bring more attention to the longest road in the United States.

You can read the article here:
The News Herald: Historic Route 20 sign unveiled in Painesville


Update May 30, 2014: As I live very close to this location I took a drive to Rider’s Inn today for a few pictures of the sign, the street, and the Inn. The picture of the Inn is my version of an old style “postcard” look. Click on any image for a larger view.
