CONSERVATION by Tom Nickelson, a member

Anglers have historically been at the forefront of conservation issues. We support conservation efforts financially through the Sport Fish Restoration Act, also known as the Dingell–Johnson Act, whereby the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service provides funding to the states for fish restoration and management projects using monies collected from an excise tax on fishing equipment. Anglers also provide “boots on the ground” as a volunteer workforce for many conservation projects around the country.
The Santa Lucia Flyfishers support conservation efforts through our fund-raising and subsequent donations to conservation organizations and through individuals volunteering on various conservation projects.

Join the club and let's fish!
