In with the new, Out with the old.

So by now your Holiday festiveness is mid swing with the New Year just around the corner.  Did you get all of that new gear you longed for?  Were you able to add to your growing fly fishing tool bag and upgrade some key items?

Where does your old gear go?

What happens to those old waders that have been replaced? New Fly Line?  Or that trusty old winch that has been replaced with a shiny new rim?

Luckily we have answers to your problems.  Well, we have friends who have answers to your problems.

The dudes over at Winged Reel have teamed up with those filthy fly fishing fools from the Pig Farm Ink gang to start the first program of it’s kind, collecting used gear for Project Healing Waters.  This is one of the coolest collaborations for an absolutely awesome cause.  Click here for all of the details and information on how you can donate your gently used gear that still has plenty of on water life.

Now that you are thinking, “Hey, I haven’t used that reel in a few seasons, this would be an awesome place to send it and help get one of our troops into Fly Fishing.”  But your Fly Line is crap and not gently used.  Don’t throw it away! Upcycle it!

Fly Vines will gladly take your old line and repurpose it into something useable!  Check them out, this is where all of last year’s PVC tapers should go.  Because the Good Lord knows, it isn’t cool to fish with PVC lines and the big man frowns on that kind of behavior.  So be good to the planet and upcycle your lines into Fly Vines!

Finally, the hardest question any angler asks themselves after getting that new pair of Simms waders, do I actually stuff them in the trash can? No, no you don’t.  If you are in Alaska, you cut the feet off and use them to snow blow your driveway or they make wonderful attire when one goes to the dark side and wields their Roe Saber.  But the best option is to recycle those old waders!

Recycled Waders in Seattle has been making our old waders into new gear for years!  Trust me when I say, there are things in your waders that will be in a landfill long into the next millennium.  Give the planet a break and upcycle those leaky, stinky, worn out waders!

 

DONATE YOUR GEAR or RECYCLE

DON’T PUT IT IN THE TRASH, PUT IT TO USE!

#CAST5 Challenge for The American Museum of Fly Fishing

 

Joan Wulff is featured on AMFF’s first online exhibit “A Graceful Rise”

Take the #CAST5 Challenge and Help The American Fly Fishing Museum (AFFM) complete the most innovative and engaging exhibit developed on Saltwater Fly Fishing!

We can’t all ease over to Vermont for a wade down fly fishing memory lane, or look like a million bucks throwing a fly line, but we do have the chance to experience state-of-the-art fly fishing exhibitions first hand in the digital world.

The first online exhibit from AMFF is now online, A Graceful Rise: Women in Fly Fishing Yesterday, Today and Tomorrow.  This is an awesome collection of 52 women and their careers and contributions to the sport.

If you love Fly Fishing and know the importance of preserving its history, take the #CAST5 Challenge and cast 5 bucks to the American Fly Fishing Museum.

Developing this online exhibition would make the research available to everyone, for generations to come.

1.  Cast 5 bucks to the American Museum of Fly Fishing via their Indiegogo Campaign.
