One day. One voice. One important stand.
On August 24th, the fly fishing community is rallying for Bristol Bay.
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.
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.
We need you to shop, fish and show up for Bristol Bay on August 24th!
