We’re always excited to see fly fishing artists use their talents to benefit organizations like CalTrout, a non-profit dedicated to preserving and protecting California’s wild fish. The most recent of these pieces was a custom Brown Trout Yeti 65 painted by Sarah Landstrom which brought in $3,200 in support for CalTrout as a part of a larger fundraising campaign. We caught up with Sarah to chat about the piece!

*UPDATE: thank you to all who participated! The YETI was able to raise $3,200 for CalTrout 🤗 UP FOR AUCTION!! 🤗 YETI @yeti 65L Cooler with a Custom NorCal paint job by yours truly❤️🎨 @californiatrout is an incredible collection of conservationists that seek to help restore and conserve California’s watersheds and native species. I’m not exaggerating when I say that these people work tirelessly—and absolutely deserve our SUPPORT!! Because of Covid-19, they are not able to have their annual fundraising Gala, and instead need people to support via an online auction so they can continue their vitally important work!! • • LINK IN MY BIO! There are other items as well from the many generous donors 🤗 📸: @mike_idell
From Sarah Landstrom:
“Supporting an organization like CalTrout is so important, especially during a time like this. It was incredible to see so many people show up and bid and donate! I painted this 65L YETI with this Brown Trout pattern because I believe in the mission of CalTrout to help conserve watersheds and Native Species in California. As an Artist, this was the least I could do to support their tireless work!”
