My Version of the Recycled Fish Post

One with an eye for detail (& blogrolls) may have noticed more than a handful of blogs writing about Recycled Fish recently.  Acutally, not just Recycled Fish, but their new online fly shop where 30% of the proceeds get put back into the cause.  Hold on...let that sink in for a minute.........................

Yep, I said 30%!!!

Look at all the goodies....

What exactly is Recycled Fish you might ask?  What is this cause?  Well I can work a mean copy & paste, so here's the deal, straight from the horse's fish's mouth:

Recycled Fish is the national non-profit organization of “anglers living a lifestyle of stewardship both on and off the water, because our lifestyle runs downstream.” The Recycled Fish “Sportsman’s Stewardship Pledge” invites anglers to embrace the Stewardship Ethic and join the organization, free of charge. The SAFE Angling Program — Sustaining Angling, Fish and Ecosystems — is a way to help anglers embrace a lifestyle of stewardship on the water. It involves catch and release fishing, including the use of single barbless hooks, biodegradable lures, and non-toxic lead-free weights. Recycled Fish also educates anglers about invasive species, habitat loss, waterway litter and pollution prevention, urban fisheries, and increase participation in recreational fishing for both adults and children. 
Kayak guy's in...are you?

Make a little more sense now?  If not, here's the basic equation...

If:          Recycled Fish = Good For Environment
And:     New Online Fly Shop = 30% of Proceeds to Recycled Fish
Then:    New Online Fly Shop = Good For Environment

See, we all win...plus I know you already buy a bunch of fishing stuff online anyway...

Go go visit Recycled Fish HERE and the new online fly shop HERE.
Probably two of the most worthwhile "clicks" you'll make today.

In writing this post, I am being entered into a contest to win some swag.  That noted, did the allure of fly fishing goodies influence the opinion voiced above?  No way man.  The facts are the facts Jack, and none of what was written is a lie.  Recycled Fish does some really good work promoting environmental awareness (I'm personally signed up), so any initiative that puts more money toward the cause is definitely worth supporting; swagadelic or not.
