Fly Mastery would like to showcase a few organizations making a huge contribution in maintaining our amazing fisheries and surrounding environments. Organizations like these help slow down the abuse of our global fishery. Without their continuous effort to protect this environment, educate those who use it, and further our understand our resources, future generations would never get to see this beautiful coastline and fishery the way we see it.
Bonefish & Tarpon Trust
To conserve and enhance global bonefish, tarpon, and permit fisheries and their environments through stewardship, research, education, and advocacy.
Lower Keys Guides Association
The Lower Keys Guides Association is a non-profit organization of professional fishing guides dedicated to working for a sustainable resource through wise management practices, while recognizing the importance of sport fishing to the economy, and cultural heritage of the Florida Keys.
Coastal Conservation Association
CCA Florida is a statewide, non-profit marine organization working in an advocacy role to protect the state’s marine resources and interests of saltwater anglers. Comprised of 30 local chapters from Pensacola to Key West, we support strong, resource-based law enforcement, access to the resource for recreational fishing, and strong and fairly-balanced fishery regulations to protect state and federal fish stocks. CCA Florida is one of 17 state chapters of the Coastal Conservation Association.
The Florida KeysKeeper is committed to the protection of the environment of the Florida Keys with a particular focus on the fish populations and the marine environment that supports them.
Captains for Clean Water
The story of Florida is a story of water. The Florida Peninsula is one of the most unique landscapes on earth. Periodically inundated in a sub-tropical setting, it features one of the most diverse ecosystems in the world, the Everglades. The control of this water, draining it, redirecting it, and containing it has been an evolving story over the last two centuries of man versus nature. And a story where there is no true winner, unless we can find a balance that ensures the ongoing health of each.
Fly Mastery is currently looking for additional registered not-for-profit organizations to accept charitable donations we receive from our reader base. Please leave a reply below or contact us to help in any way.
