As you know, Hurricane Ian has brought unimaginable destruction to Southwest Florida. In recent years, the fly fishing community has stepped up to support those in need, and specifically those in our own community. There are currently a number of Instagram auctions happening to help raise funds. Everything from a week at the Belize Permit Club with a Hatch Reel to a YETI cooler and Costa sunglasses from Costa to two days of fishing with Carter Andrews along with two G.Loomis rods and two Nautilus reels are among some of the auctions. RepYourWater, Lary’s Fly & Supply, Umpqua Feather Merchants, Bryan Gregson, Patagonia, Skwala, and others have also added to the effort.
