#FliesForFireRelief – Fly Fishing Community Rallies to Support Fire Relief

Spey fishing tips

Josh Mills and the #FliesFor community are back making their impact on those affected by the devastating fires that have struck the Pacific Northwest, Rocky Mountains, and California in the past weeks. Entire communities, businesses, and homes have burnt, and they need all the help they can get while attempting to recover in the days of COVID-19.

The fires in Oregon have hit the region’s fly fishing and outdoors businesses hard, but thanks to the infectious altruism of Josh Mills and his fundraising campaigns, help is on the way in the form of donations and circulating dozens of flies. The concept is simple, find items up for auction via #FliesForFireRelief, make a bid in the comments, and then the proceeds from your bid will be donated to one of the many relief funds being set up in the affected regions.

Check out these #FliesForFireRelief items that are up for auction!
