Presentation: Sometimes to Save a River You Have to Buy it

Jim Cox, Director of Donor Relations for Western Rivers Conservancy will make a presentation entitled “Sometimes To Save A River You Have To Buy It” to the Peninsula Fly Fishers the evening of Thursday, February 19.

Included in the program is stunning photography of past and current projects including work on some of the most iconic fly fishing rivers across the West including Oregon’s John Day and Sandy Rivers, the Yampa in Colorado, the Madison River in Montana, Washington’s Hoh River and California’s Smith, Eel and Klamath Rivers,
