Save the Everglades

Text WATER to 52886, and tell Florida’s leaders to support SB10 and HB761 and to build the EAA Reservoir, which would restore the flow of fresh, clean water to the River of Grass. It’s #NowOrNeverglades

The fragile Everglades ecosystem is at a tipping point and needs the support of the Florida legislature. This ecosystem supports 1.3 million jobs and represents $109 billion to Florida’s economy. More than 200 Everglades scientists agree that increased storage, treatment, and conveyance of water is necessary as a long-term solution.

The EAA reservoir would capture and store Lake Okeechobee overflow to be redistributed to the south and the Everglades, after being cleaned via filtering through the ground. This would stop the damaging discharges to the St. Lucie and Caloosahatchee rivers and the choking drought occurring in the Everglades.

65% of Florida voters approved the purchase and the U.S. Congress reaffirmed their commitment to the project in 2016. Orvis and the outdoor industry want everyone to know how precious the Everglades is and how political will can restore the Everglades, Florida Bay, and Florida’s major estuaries.

Fish the Truth – Scientific Anglers Leader and Tippet from Scientific Anglers on Vimeo.

For years, our leader and tippet materials were marketed as being something they weren’t. The diameters, breaking strengths, and performance just weren’t accurate—or up to par with our own rigorous standards. Our new leader and tippet material is, simply put, the strongest and most reliable we have ever created, with the highest wet-knot strength of anything we tested. Period.

Up to 35% stronger than our previous material and built to traditional X size diameters, Scientific Anglers leader and tippet is strong, accurate, and 100% true.

Put it this way: You can fish the other stuff, or you can Fish the Truth.

Chasing 24 Carrot Gold

Chasing 24 Carat Gold from Jonathan Jones aka Redbeard on Vimeo.

The film is set in Bolivia, Chasing 24 carat gold – Golden Dorado.
We set out deep in to the jungle, in search of this golden monster. I spent over 8 weeks guiding several groups up and down the Casare River, Pachene River and its several tributaries. After a few days travel up stream, we had made it to base camp and it was from here that the real journey began. These fish live in one of the most amazing jungles in the world and love to hide out in tight and fast moving water that the rivers provide. They hit hard and fight back adding to the excitement of this life changing adventure. In total isolation (no iPhones or instagram) the vast amount of wild life and adrenaline between anglers seems more real than ever.
