Keep Fish Wet Announces Fundraiser


Keep Fish Wet is running a series of raffles and an auction for guided trips.  For each raffle there is a theme prize that supports one of their Best Practice, as well as other fantastic prizes.  The auction has domestic offerings around the US and two fantastic international trips — to Costa Rica and Patagonia.   Both the raffle and auction run until December 15th.

Every penny goes to support Keep Fish Wet education and outreach programs to help create better outcomes for each fish that is released.  As many of our most iconic fisheries face growing anthropogenic pressures, Keep Fish Wet believes that we have a responsibility to build community around the use of science-based best practices for catch-and-release and angling in the face of climate change.

Many thanks to the fundraiser sponsors: Release Fly Travel, Las Pampas Lodge, Blane Chocklett, Mark Harbaugh, Emerald Water Anglers, Kismet Outfitters, Benny Blanco, Patagonia, Bajio, Yeti, Tuna Champions, Cheeky, AquaTech, RepYourWater, Umpqua, Rising, Salty Fly Tying, Loon Outdoors, and Fulling Mill.

About Keep Fish Wet

Keep Fish Wet is a 501c3 nonprofit that promotes the use of science-based best practices to catch, handle, and release fish.  Science shows that even small changes in how an angler catches, handles, and releases a fish can have positive outcomes once that fish swims away. Keep Fish Wet aggregates and translates the science on catch-and-release into a usable format, and then acts as a hub to disseminate guidelines to a wide range of stakeholders.  Not only does using best practices increase survival rates of fish, but it also helps fish return to their normal behavior as quickly as possible after release. Using best practices for catch-and-release is a quick and effective way to put conservation in to practice.  For more information, visit
