If you follow our Instagram account, or other fly anglers on Instagram, you may have noticed an online fundraiser that started a week ago to help the people in need from the devastating Hurricane Dorian in the Bahamas. Our good friend Josh Mills felt the urge to create a campaign to help affected Bahamians called Dozen For Dorian. He donated a dozen personal hand tied flies to be auctioned off to the highest bidder. Other folks have since chimned in and are donating flies, trips, and other fly gear under the hashtag #dozenfordorian. Currently $27,000 in funds have been raised that will go straight to the folks in need, not lodges or resorts.
We love the Bahamas for it’s incredible flats fishing, and more importantly the wonderful people that inhabit the islands. To help raise money for the great people of the Bahamas after Hurricane Dorian devastated the region we are raffling off a Redington Hydrogen 2wt Trout Spey this Friday at 12pm on our Instagram account.
If you are interested in participating head over to our Instagram page and place your bid in the comments, as of this writing it's up to $300. If you are the highest bidder at noon on Friday 9/20 head over to the Yellow Dog Community and Conservation Foundation @ydccf and make your donation with your winning bid. Screenshot the completed donation and email us at flyfish@silverbowflyshop, we will then ship out your new rod!
Please only participate if you live in the lower 48, we will NOT ship the rod overseas, AK, or HI. Sorry, keeping it simple!
Best of luck and thanks for supporting those in need in the Bahamas.
