Andrew Grillos Fly Fishing: Global Perspective to Our Local Fisheries

1398317599251

From Colorado, Alaska, Washington to Chile, Argentina and New Zealand, Andrew Grillos has spent a few hours on the water guiding clients and putting a whole lot of fun in Fly Fishing.

For me, fly fishing has always been about having fun while in the outdoors.  Whether you’re an expert or have never touched a fly rod, I consider a day to be successful when we can have a good time on the water.  Whether it’s catching some fish, learning a thing or two, or just enjoying being the escape of being outside, these are all things that can make a guide day a success in my eyes.”

Blood Knots: Our Two Hands

“Salmon are part of the natural commons; they belong to all of us, and we have a shared responsibility to ensure their persistence. This collective responsibility can bring citizens of a community together for a common purpose.”

-Jim Lichatowich

One of the great things about the evolution of our modern existence is the ability to connect with those near and far.  Social Media has opened doors and created relationships that in the past, could have taken years to align.

Fly Fishing Collaborative Update

1427493879634

The progress FFC has made over the past year is incredible.  Not only is the Tilapia Farm in Thailand fully operational, but the work team has already landed in Southern Belize to begin construction of another farm that will feed over 140 kids.  Read more on the March 2015 FFC update here.

How can you help?

The Fly Fishing Collaborative is offering professionally guided fly fishing trips and selling custom-made leather fly wallets. The money raised will be given to orphanages and caregivers around the world. This will go towards creating sustainable livelihoods and economic support to rescue and prevent more children from being sold into the sex slave industry.

Every $10,000 we raise will provide a totally sustainable tilapia farm that will be built for an orphanage in order to provide them with food, income, water, and fresh produce. Additionally, this will empower their leaders to care for more children that would otherwise be sold into slavery.

Stay in touch, Stay in formed and Stand up for Social Justice.
