Just a quick note to thank TU's sponsors of this year's TU Blogger Tour. Fishpond, RIO Products and Tenkara USA each contributed funding and gear to make this year's tour to Alaska's Tongass National Forest possible, and we're grateful for their support.
The Tongass is a true angler's paradise that's home to salmon, char and trout. TU has identified 77 intact drainages on the Tongass that are highly functional and vital to the region's salmon fishery--both commercial and recreational. Our hope is to protect these rivers and streams--and the fish that swim in their waters--in perpetuity, both to ensure a bright future for Southeast Alaska's commercial fishery and to make sure one of the best destination fisheries for recreational anglers remains intact for generations to come.
Thank you again to our sponsors--we're grateful for their support, and for their understanding of the connection between intact, functional habitat and angling opportunity.
Check back frequently this week... there's lots more to come.
