Connecting Fishing to Conservation


Written by NFC National Vice Chair Bob Mallard, and published on the Epic Fly Rods blog, while not a conservation piece per se, it connects fishing to conservation, something that is very important in the grand scheme of things…

I also came to the realization that while I had always thought of myself as a conservation-minded fly fisher, I was actually a conservationist that fly fished. I decided that saving fish, wild and native ones as they are what really matters, was more important than saving fishing, and that saving the latter was not going to save the former but saving the former might save the latter.
