We’ve got a big fight ahead of us, and we need all hands on deck!
To help raise funds and awareness of the Pebble Mine issue in Bristol Bay, the American Fly Fishing Trade Association has organized A Day for Bristol Bay.
From the American Fly Fishing Trade Association:
The fly fishing community has been fighting for over a decade to keep Pebble Mine from devastating Bristol Bay and the fisheries that sustain 14,000 jobs, a $1.5 billion dollar annual economic engine, native communities and a world-class destination to fly fish.
On August 24th, the fly fishing community is coming together as one undeniable force in support of Bristol Bay – and we need your help!
Fly shops, manufacturers, guides, outfitters, lodges and more industry professionals nationwide have banded together for A Day for Bristol Bay to raise much-needed funding for the Bristol Bay Defense Fund – the front-line group that is going toe-to-toe in D.C. with the foreign mining interests behind the mine.
Whether you’re a fly angler or just love the outdoors, we need you to shop, fish and show up for Bristol Bay on August 24th!
