Flies for Fins

Fly gal April Vokey of Fly Gal Ventures has started a fundraiser called Flies For Fins, to protect the wild steelhead of British Columbia. You may recognize her as "the Simms Girl". She is also the West Coast Field Editor of The Canadian Fly Fisher Magazine.

April started a Facebook group for the Flies for Fins Fundraiser. In conjunction with Reaction Fly and Tackle, Pacific Angler, Michael and Young Fly Shop and Whistler FlyFishing April is trying to raise money for the Steelhead Society to undertake habitat restoration projects to benefit anadromous salmonids. All you have to do is donate some steelhead flies and send them to:

8505 Norman Cres.
Chilliwack, B.C.
V2P 5C6

These flies will be sold at the above mentioned BC shops, where proceeds will be donated to the Steelhead Society. Hit the vise. It's for a good cause.
