In this Video of the Week, we look into the love and friendship Tom Derry has created with wild steelhead. “Tom: The Friend Fish Deserve” is a short story by Patagonia about Tom Derry’s connection between wild fish and the activists striving to protect them. A lifelong angler and the director of wild steelhead funding for the Native Fish Society, Tom embodies the commitment behind countless conservation efforts all with a single goal: more wild fish. So sit down and enjoy Tom’s effortless enthusiasm for life and steelhead. And remember to “Enjoy Your life, because nobody else will.” – Tom Derry

In addition to Patagonia and the Native Fish Society, the project was made possible by Asher Koles of Black Koles and their good friend and collaborator Chase White. Follow along with their projects here:
