A Short Film Focused on Women Anglers in Southeast Alaska

Fly Fishing, Southeast Alaska, Women Anglers: Reel Happiness.  We are excited to support Kayla Roys and Sydney Akagi’s project focusing on women anglers in Southeast.

Kayla and Sydney’s team of Alaskan film producers and female anglers are currently applying to the Trout Unlimited F3T Fly Fishing Grant. This award amount is up to $15,000 that will go towards creating this film. To qualify for this grant we must first raise a percentage of the cost we are asking for, this is where the Kickstarter comes in!

If awarded this grant, the film will be on tour during the 2017 Trout Unlimited film tour to about 100 cities in the United States.

Although the initial goal has been reached, please consider adding additional support to Reel Happiness.  Your support of Alaskan projects not only encourages future projects, but also secures much needed additional funds to help make Reel Happiness a fantastic representation of Alaskan women anglers and will help to offset travel costs.16889a1f4d611b9bbfd3cef8ac443fe9_original

When you support Reel Happiness, you also receive a pretty snazzy Messy Hair Stubborn Spirit T-Shirt design, that by all means captures the spirit of all Alaskan women anglers.

We really enjoy this whole Crowd Funding thing going on these days, especially when they are close to home or involve things we love to do.  I will admit, Groove Ring was a real head scratcher when Peter Goodwin from The General Lodge reached out to me with a sneak peek at the product.  I gave it the courteous once over and continued scratching my head.

I don’t wear rings.  I lose them.  One is at the bottom of the Gallatin, luckily without my finger2386d542d02f339058f6c9953fe4e33b_original attached after a near death boating accident.  Yes, you can drown on the Gallatin, I almost proved it.  The next ring flew off my hand in a Fly Shop and was never seen again.

Now Groove Ring comes into the picture.  I read and re-read and the more I thought about it, the more it made sense.   Technology that attaches to your finger has been born….Read on about Groove Ring.
