We wade into a river
With a solitary wish
To be a lucky human
Who gets to glance upon a fish
But what we find is something different
As the current ebbs and flows
Fishing is not about fishing
But about the truth we already know.
Here's a fun story... this Kula is a true 'Father-Daughter' collaboration. Kula founder Anastasia's dad is a fly casting instructor and a member of the Antietam Fly Anglers. This Kula was created in collaboration with the Antietam Fly Anglers and a portion of the sales will benefit their non-profit.
The Antietam Anglers is a charter club of the Fly Fishers International (FFI). They are located in Hagerstown, MD, and they are a non-profit 501(c)3 organization. FFI clubs support the three pillars of the parent organization: Community, Education and Conservation. For community, they participate in the MD Adopt-A-Highway program. For education, the club teaches fly casting for free virtually every Saturday on the shores of the Potomac River and conducts an annual Fly Casters Rendezvous to teach fly casting. For Conservation, the club participates in an annual local Beaver Creek maintenance day, and they have partnered with a local watershed association with benthic sampling and we have purchased and donated calibrated strainers for that sampling. The FFI website is http://www.
