See the Latest News page for much more media coverage about this critical development. Here are two recent highlights:

And don’t forget - Crystal Creek Lodge is very generously giving away a trip for 2 people in 2014! To qualify, you need to submit your comment and encourage up to six of your friends, family, and colleagues to do the same. Click the image for full details.

Awesome Video from SAA Friend Camille Egdorf

If you’ve seen Red Gold you probably recall Camille Egdorf, whose family has run a Bristol Bay sport fishing camp for decades on the Upper Nushagak River. It’s not much of a surprise to learn that Camille has continued working in Bristol Bay, and last summer she spent 100 hours documenting life for a season at her family’s camp. Take a few minutes and enjoy Forget Me Knot, Camille’s filmmaking debut.

“…you begin to see the bigger picture in life. It’s not about the money, the car, or even the biggest fish. It’s about loving what you do, and doing what you love. And I think I’m getting pretty close to that.” – Camille Egdorf
