Fundraising Fishing Derbies

2015 Fishing Derbies

Fishing has its intrinsic values; writers ruminate and poets ponder those values, yet every angler knows them. Economic studies make it clear that fishing is valuable in a very real and measurable way. From my perspective, I am glad to stand in league with anglers that drive this economic engine; healthy habitats and healthy fish lead to healthy people and healthy economies.
