Today, the fly fishing community is rallying for 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.

Many of us have 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.
Yellow Dog works directly with these outfitters and lodges whose livelihoods rely directly on a healthy Bristol Bay:
All of these and MANY more lodges and people rely on a healthy fishery.
