A heart full of gratitude

Good afternoon / evening!

I’m sending this note with a heart full of gratitude. I will never forget seeing so many fly fishing enthusiasts, outfitters, businesses, and friends all come together around one important cause. March 9th was a night to remember. We blew our goal of 105K out of the water. Without your incredible support and generosity none of what we do would be possible. This year’s Banquet proved that through collaboration of a caring community we can make a difference in one of the world’s most evil injustices. Thanks to your generosity, we were able to raise $120,000! That is a 20% increase from last year’s event. With this money we will be able to fund this year’s projects and get a jump on next year’s.

I will be traveling to Nepal for the rest of March to continue preparing for our upcoming projects there. When I return, I will be available to meet with anyone who is interested in getting more involved with FFC. If you ever have any questions or ideas please contact me directly at bucky@flyfishingcollaborative.org. Collaboration is our strength, and it wouldn't be possible without you!

With much appreciation,

Bucky Buchstaber

Executive Director of Fly Fishing Collaborative
