Belizean Fly Fishing Guides Support
Seven months into the worldwide pandemic – as other Caribbean countries and destinations have opened back up to traveling anglers – the Belizean fly fishing community that is so important to our overall industry and to our sport is running out of resources and options. While the prime minister announced that the country now has a reopening date of October 1st, we know it will be a slow return to full-time work for all of these guides.
We want to offer you an opportunity to support these guides who have given so much to the fly fishing community. This is your chance to bid on a one of a kind package from us here at Fishpond, including a Thunderhead Submersible Backpack, Dakota Carry-On, and a Fishpond River Couch. These couches are made custom for us by Outcast and are not for sale, so this is your only opportunity to get your hands on everybody's favorite portable lounge! 100% of the proceeds of this auction will be donated to the licensed, full-time guides of Belize, through the Yellow Dog Community and Conservation Foundation.
Fishpond creates products that stretch the boundaries of traditional design and set new standards for functionality. Though our roots lie in the fly fishing industry, the gear we make is at home anywhere innovative design, impeccable function, and global stewardship is valued. We have worked hard over the past 20 years to use our brand as a force for good. To us, that means doing everything in our power to support local communities and preserve wild places for future generations to enjoy.
