PROTECTING, PRESERVING AND ENHANCING THE PLACES THAT MATTER TO ANGLERS
DONATE TODAY AND HELP THE BAHAMAS
WHAT: The Yellow Dog Community and Conservation Foundation (YDCCF), AFFTA, Angling Trade and Yellow Dog have established a fund to raise money for our Bahamian fly fishing “family” – the guides, lodge employees, staff and of course the families that have been devastated by Hurricane Dorian.
WHY: We realize that there will be numerous, large-scale relief and aid efforts that will target the Bahamas in the weeks and months ahead, and that is a good thing. Our goal, however, is to help those in the fly fishing industry – the guides, lodge employees and those that are directly linked to the fly fishing industry on Abaco and Grand Bahama. Lodges can be rebuilt and insurance can pay out. For the individuals that are affected however – by loss of property, possessions and income – we want to make a direct difference.
WHEN: All funds raised through the Double Haul for Dorian hurricane relief campaign will be distributed directly to those that need help. We plan to deliver funds on both Grand Bahama and Abaco: placing funds directly into the hands of those that need it most by working with our network of lodges and local outfitters. This is the most direct way to ensure that these resources are delivered directly to the people that need the most help.
WHO: Double Haul for Dorian - Anglers for the Bahamas is proud to partner with any businesses or entities in the fishing world to raise as much as possible and have the biggest impact. We look forward to partnering with others from throughout the world of fly fishing to spread the word and maximize donations
