Conservation & Advocacy
Partners & their Missions
The Guide Relief Program is both grateful and honored to have these groups join us on our mission to provide resources to guides, ranging from information on proper fish handling ethics to improving business models that reduce impacts on the fisheries we care about and rely on in our industry.
Like us, these organizations believe that a unified effort amongst all of us in the industry will help to achieve goals and successes that have been long sought after, ranging from reducing our carbon footprints to cutting out single use plastics in our daily operations. We look forward to continued collaboration with these partners and expanding access to great organizations like these to our guides.
We ask that you learn about each of these organizations, if you are not already familiar with them, and support the work they do. Our hope is that the mission and work of one, or more, will resonates with you and feel the urge to support them.
Montanans For Healthy Rivers
Montana residents, business owners, sportsmen and sportswomen, and conservationists joined forces under the banner of Montanans for Healthy Rivers to identify and conserve the last, best free-flowing rivers in Montana. Over a decade of public outreach during which we conducted hundreds of meetings, over 3,000 Montanans and more than 1,000 Montana businesses have voiced support for significant new Wild and Scenic River designations.
Keep Fish Wet
Keep Fish Wet promotes the use of science-based best practices to catch, handle, and release fish. This by adopting science-based best practices is a personal evolution and work in progress for all of us — especially as the science continues to advance as well.
Fly Fishing Climate Alliance
Climate change is the single greatest threat to fish on the planet. That's why we are pledging to go carbon neutral by 2030. We are an alliance of guides, shops, lodges, brands and nonprofits who believe it is our responsibility to solve the climate crisis so that we can save the planet, the fish and our businesses.
