Joan Wulf - A Lifetime of Flyfishing and Activism
We are friends and supporters of Florida's own Bonefish and Tarpon Trust (BTT). We've known the people there for many years, and the work they've done to understand and protect the fish we all love to catch and release has been truly epic. They are worth your time and financial support. The next time you're going to buy a new $12 lure, think about send them ten of it and buying a white bucktail jig for $1.50. They work on both species - trust us, they do.
The BTT recently held a dinner in New York City. Hardly the home of the Silver King, the meeting was held - among other things - to award a very cool award to a very cool lady named Joan Wulf. It was the Curt Gowdy award.
From the story on Forbes magazine:
The highlight of the evening was the presentation of the Curt Gowdy Memorial Award to Joan Wulff. Gowdy, the former sportscaster and host of ABC’s “The American Sportsman,” was a founding member of BTT and a staunch advocate of conservation. Paul Volcker, the towering former Chairman of the Federal Reserve, handled Joan's introduction, admitting that he’d been “too nervous” to ever fish with her because of her angling prowess.
