Holiday Giving Guide

While most retailers are bombarding your inbox with cyber Monday deals; we feel compelled to highlight some of our favorite non-profits. If you are planning some end of the year giving I hope you will consider these great organizations:


1. California Trout

- I love this organization for so many reasons. Cal Trout is leading the charge on bringing awareness to and solving California’s most significant coldwater issues. Their approac to conservation is sophisticated and effective. Perks for Golden Trout Circle Members (1k + Donation) include Fishing Trips, guest speakers, cocktail hours and more.


2. Western River Conservancy -

They have a highly effective and long lasting approach to conservation. They buy large tracts of land on critical watersheds. They then restore and deed the property to whichever public agency they determine to be most appropriate (state or national parks.) Perks of large donors include some very special fishing opportunities


3. Rivers of Recovery -

 specializes in the rehabilitation of combat veterans suffering from Post Traumatic Stress (PTS), minor Traumatic Brain Injury (mTBI), stress, anxiety and depression by taking them fishing. Lost Coast Outfitters helped out this year by giving over 30 Fly Fishing kits to veterans going fishing.


4. Cast Hope -

was started to connect kid and mentors through the experience of fly fishing.  Through their program, kids build mentoring relationships, fly fishing skills, outdoor knowledge, sustainable practices, and personal values.


5. Project Healing Waters -

 The Golden Gate Angling & Casting Club, cooperation with the San Francisco VA Medical Center, is launching a Project Healing Waters Fly Fishing program aimed at promoting the physical and emotional rehabilitation of disabled veterans through fly fishing activities such as classes in fly casting and fly tying, and through outings to rivers in the West.
