Josh and the Bahamas
I ran a pretty successful campaign to help people in the Bahamas without hurricane recovery. I ended up running this thing called Dozen for Dorian. So when the hurricane Dorian went over the Bahamas and just crushed everything back in September, I've never been down there. I want to go down there to fish for bonefish, tarpon, permit. But Abaco in Grand Bahama just got absolutely destroyed, 30 feet wall of water went over Abaco. And there's not a piece of ground there that isn't more than 35 feet above sea level. So it's like, I don't know what to do here. So I put a dozen of my flies up and it started this viral thing and we started calling it a Dozen for Dorian. And people were like putting their flies on Instagram. And then we ended up after about a month, if I thought that we would raise not just on my dozen, but people started doing their own dozen and everything kind of got coalesced under this thing. And we're donating the money to this thing called the Yellow Dog Fly Fishing Community and Conservation Fund. So not to rebuild lodges, but to give people who work in the fishing industry like money to rebuild their home or buy a generator and like that. I thought if we raised five grand, it'd be cool. We ended up after a month raising forty two thousand one hundred dollars just through people putting up flies on Instagram. And then it became trips and then it became this. And it became that. It was crazy.
Yeah, crazy. Good. Thanks, Josh. And thanks to all of you sportsmen who got involved and helped out.
