Become an Ambassador on the water

The guys of the Fish Schtick Podcast intoduced me to Recycled Fish. Of course, one of the show’s hosts runs the program. The idea of Recycled Fish is to get fishers to think environmentally for today, and for the future of fishing.

Recycled Fish is a non-profit organization seeking to invite fishermen to a life of stewardship on and off the water. Energy saving appliances and light bulbs at home. Biodegradable and non-lead fishing tackle. The works. Recycled fish often reminds people that our “lifestyle flows down stream”. What we do at home affects the waters. What we do while we’re fishing affects the waters. And all of this affects fish.

I cannot, until I sit down and invite Teeg Stouffer to an interview, do Recycled Fish’s program justice. Its awesome. Please go to their site at www.recycledfish.org and take a look. I also invite you to check out the Fish Schtick podcast at http://mauromedia.com/category/podcast/fish-schtick-podcast/.

Another excellent program brought to my attention during Fish Schtick episode 18 was Take Me Fishing. TakeMeFishing.org is a community that is trying to promote fishing and boating. They have an eye on stewardship and environmental concerns like Recycled Fish, but they’re trying to bring more people to fishing and outdoor recreation. Sport fishing is one of the only sports that you have to pay to play. Our gear and licenses bring revenues that are used to keep cool clean waters flowing, hatchery programs, parks and recreations areas growing, and more.

I highly suggest you visit these websites, listen to the podcasts, and get involved. The work done by these people is awesome.

    A great example for how all of us should act while out on the water
