BENEFITING: CONSERVATION HAWKS INC
Our first movie, COLD WATERS, featured some of America’s top anglers - Craig Mathews of Blue Ribbon Flies, Tim Romano of Field & Stream, Steve Hemkens of Orvis and Yvon Chouinard of Patagonia - discussing the threat we face from climate change. Earlier this year, COLD WATERS toured the country as part of the 2015 Fly Fishing Film Tour. It was also featured in the Orvis “Down the Hatch” Film Festival. More recently, it’s been named an official selection of both the 2015 American Conservation Film Festival and the 2015 Adventure Film Festival.
Because COLD WATERS was such an overwhelming success, we've decided to film a second movie. We’re scheduled to shoot CHROME this September in northern British Columbia. We’ll be fishing for steelhead, and talking about the impacts of climate change and ocean acidification on our vital steelhead and salmon fisheries.
Why make CHROME? Because many of the world’s great fisheries face an existential threat from our changing climate and acidifying oceans. If we can educate and engage enough anglers, we can put enormous pressure on politicians to lower our CO2 emissions and protect our steelhead and salmon. Even more importantly, CHROME will help give our kids & grandkids a fighting shot at a decent future.
CHROME has already received tremendous support within the fly fishing industry. Our sponsors include Orvis, Patagonia, Scientific Anglers, Yeti, Costa, Simms, TroutHunter and Hatch Magazine. But we still need your help. If we raise a minimum of $15,000 through this crowdfunding campaign, we can create a truly epic film to share with America’s anglers. Please watch COLD WATERS, pass it along to your friends and family, and then donate whatever you can afford so that CHROME will reach anglers all over America this winter. Thank you!
