Most of you know I work with Yellow Dog Flyfishing Adventures as a trip host, travel advisor and I often get to explore future fly fishing destinations. I couldn’t ask for a better fly fishing travel company to be a part of. It’s not only because they offer the best destinations but also because Yellow Dog takes measures to protect the world’s incredible fisheries.
This week Yellow Dog founded the Yellow Dog Community and Conservation Foundation (YDCCF). This is something that has been in the works for many years and we are thrilled that the Foundation is now a reality. The simple idea of the new Foundation will allow us to effectively donate hundreds of thousands of dollars into projects, communities, conservation work, enforcement, education and more in so many of these remote and rural areas directly connected to fishing.
The money comes out of Yellow Dog’s end of things: and clients can feel good knowing that up to $100 from each trip is being donated to the Foundation in the name of every Yellow Dog customer that books a trip. No extra costs or tacked on fees at all – same exact cost, with more going back to each fishery! People will pay the same but can feel good knowing that a portion of the money they’ve spent will go towards protecting, improving and enhancing fisheries.
Now I have one more reason to be a proud part of the Yellow Dog Team and our customers have even MORE of a reason to book with Yellow Dog!
