Over the past couple of years, Orvis has been working with an organization called Brown Folks Fishing to help make fly fishing more inclusive and representative of the American population. The group’s founder, Tracy Nguyen-Chung, was presented with the 2019 Breaking Barriers Award at last year’s Orvis Guide Rendezvous in Missoula, Montana.
Check out this great video from the Outbound Collective, about Chris Hill, associate director of the Sierra Club’s Lands, Water, Wildlife Campaign. She’s also an avid fly fisher, and she talks about how she came to love the outdoors and what community-building through social media and Brown Folks Fishing has meant to her. It’s inspiring stuff.
