Video: “The Last Cast–Sportsmen Fight to Save Bristol Bay”

Here’s the latest video from Trout Unlimited about the fight to save Bristol Bay from the proposed Pebble Mine. The description under the YouTube video says it all:

This beautiful video will sweep you into the incredible landscape of Bristol Bay, Alaska and give you a taste of why anglers “are spoiled forever” after fishing in Bristol Bay’s productive waters. “It’s the place people dream to fish.” And, it explains why sportsmen are fighting so hard to protect this last vestige of wild in the United States from an open-pit mine of “unimaginable size” called Pebble. As they say, it’s go time.

As you know, Orvis has been part of this fight since the beginning, and we continue to support the efforts of all the organizations who have banded together to protect Bristol Bay. If you haven’t checked them out already, don’t miss Robert Glenn Ketchum’s gorgeous photos of the region on his No Pebble Mine facebook page.

This is Lake Clark, which will share a border with the Pebble Mine. Should these kinds of
American natural resources be squandered in the pursuit of fashionable jewelry?
