Korkers wading boot supports the next chapter of conservation in Bristol Bay
Korkers has designed a limited-edition pair of Devil’s Canyon wading boots with Trout Unlimited in support of permanent and durable safeguards Bristol Bay, and 35% of profits will be donated to TU’s Save Bristol Bay campaign. Purchase yours here.
For the past two decades, anglers have been part of the hard-fought effort to stop the formerly proposed Pebble mine. An open pit copper and gold mine was slated for the headwaters of Bristol Bay, Alaska, home to the world largest sockeye salmon fishery and a crown jewel in the sportfishing and hunting industry.
In 2020, the key federal permit for the proposed mine was denied to the Pebble Limited Partnership as the proposal failed to meet Clean Water Act standards and was “contrary to public interest.”
Now local fishing business owners, tribes and fishermen are calling for durable protections for the region to ensure Pebble—or another mining company—can’t come back in the future.
Each pair of Special Edition Devil’s Canyon boots will feature:
- Vibram Sole Configuration
- Bristol Bay Informational Insert
- Free 1-Year TU Membership
- No Pebble sticker
- No Pebble koozie
Thank you Korkers for your creativity and generosity in supporting the people, fish and fish-based businesses in Bristol Bay who want assurance that clean water and healthy fish habitat will continue to thrive in southwest Alaska.
