Five years ago, a small group of conservation-minded anglers I am part of called the Greenbacks sat down to discuss how to excite a new generation of young, passionate anglers. The thought was simple – let’s change how conservation is viewed by a younger audience and make it engaging by thinking outside the box.
One of our first events was hosting a gallery show of some of the best fishing photography in the world at another group member’s gallery called Anthology Fine Art. At the time I was photo editor of the highly acclaimed Fly Fish Journal and had connections to some of the industry’s best photographers and images around. Five years later it’s still going strong. Luckily I’ve kept many of those relationships and quite a few of those folks still donate their incredible images to our cause ever year.
With that in mind if you live in the Denver, Colorado area or know someone else that might appreciate this kind of thing (by sharing the info) please help us celebrate our five years of changing the world of conservation at the Anthology Fine Art gallery on Friday February 27th, 2015.
Prints will be available for purchase to benefit the Greenbacks work to conserve Colorado’s coldwater fisheries and recruit the next generation of Trout Unlimited Members.
We’ll also have an insane collection of raffle items from sponsors Scott Rods, Cheeky Fly Fishing, Scientific Anglers, and Costa Del Mar.
