Fly Fishing Collaborative

Please take four minutes and watch this video.  They have some good ideas and I am going to keep an eye on what the Fly Fishing Collaborative is working towards.

From the Fly Fishing Collaborative website...

"We exist to use our passion for fly fishing for a good and just cause. According to United Nations Children’s Fund (UNICEF), human trafficking is the world’s largest enterprise after drugs and weapons. Over 2 million children are affected annually. Studies show that children caught in sex trafficking are victimized by 100–1500 perpetrators each year. We formed the FFC so that we can use our tools in fly fishing to give children the protection and healing they need. By partnering with professional fly fishing outfitters and guides around the world, we have the incredible opportunity to join the fight for freedom and recovery for these precious children.

Every $10,000 we raise will provide a totally sustainable tilapia farm that will be built for an orphanage in order to provide them with food, income, water, and fresh produce. Additionally, this will empower their leaders to care for more children that would otherwise be sold into slavery."

Check out the Fly Fishing Collaborative website for more information, to buy a leather fly wallet, or book a trip.

Thank you Cameron and The Fiberglass Manifesto!!!

We truly appreciate you sharing the word and collaborating to expand the industry's efforts. Each of us have the passion of fishing within and with it, we can also use it to make a difference in helping rescued orphans from human trafficking locally and abroad.

Let's chat more!
