Far Bank Enterprises, and their house of brands that includes Sage Fly Fishing, Redington, RIO Products, and Fly Water Travel, has become a Bonefish & Tarpon Trust Gold Partner, extending its previous support of BTT’s mission to conserve bonefish, tarpon, and permit—the species, their habitats and the larger fisheries they comprise.
“Conservation has always been an integral part of Far Bank’s DNA and BTT has been a long-standing and important partner,” said Far Bank CMO/CPO Tag Kleiner. “BTT’s science-based approach to protecting and enhancing healthy, functioning flats fisheries is perfectly aligned with Far Bank’s commitment to healthy, thriving fisheries for our fly fishing community to enjoy and protect for future generations.”
Far Bank’s house of brands are some of the most iconic brands in all of fly fishing. Sage Fly Fishing is recognized as the world’s leading producer of high-end performance fly rods, reels, blanks and accessories built for the specialty fly-fishing market, complemented by RIO Products’ equally strong reputation in producing fly lines, leaders, tippet, and flies. Redington is a leading supplier of performance-driven, refreshing-value rods, reels, kits, waders, wading boots, apparel, and accessories.
Fly Water Travel is a team of fly fishing and travel experts, faithfully committed to arranging trips to the world’s finest fly fishing destinations and ensuring guests have angling experiences that exceed all expectations. Headquartered on Bainbridge Island, WA with USA manufacturing in both Washington and Idaho, Far Bank has offices in Seattle SoDo, Ashland, OR, and Idaho Falls, ID, and Far Bank products can be found in every corner of the globe.
“Far Bank’s commitment to fisheries conservation is a cornerstone of the company and its industry-leading brands,” said BTT President and CEO Jim McDuffie. “Their partnership and increased corporate support will enable BTT to continue bringing science to the fight for clean water, healthy habitats, and effective fisheries management.”
Far Bank’s renewed and increased support will increase BTT’s impact on the conservation of flats fisheries and the communities that depend on them.
