Project Permit Is In Full Effect

Project Permit, a new joint venture between The Bonefish and Tarpon Trust and Costa Del Mar Sunglasses, has the goal of tagging 6,000 permit for scientific research. The stuff they have found out about bonefish and tarpon is phenomenal so I imagine this will bear the same fruit.

Go to the Project Permit website to apply for tags if you are so inclined.

CONTEST: Help Redfish, Win a Reel

Redfish photos should look like this…

Not this…

Our friend Capt. Gordon, a North Carolina fly fishing guide, wants to make the second picture a thing of the past, so more people can take more of the first.

The problem is that North Carolina still allows a particularly indiscriminate type of commercial fishing in the form of unattended gill nets.

Capt. Gordon started A PETITION TO STOP UNATTENDED GILL NET PRACTICES.

He needs 1,ooo signatures to send it to the Governor.

Here’s the deal. Go sign his petition, then leave a comment on this post saying “signed.” That’s all you have to do to help a fly brother out.  For those two seconds of your time, you will be eligible to win a REDINGTON TITANIUM CDL REEL for 7/8 W Line. (A Winner will be chosen at random from the comments list on this post, provided your name matches up with the petition.)

In case you missed it, HERE’S THE LINK TO THE PETITION.

[Note: If you've already put your name on the petition, you can still leave a "signed" comment here.]
