Sportsmen from around the country are traveling to the nation’s capitol April 16-18 to let their elected officials, federal administrators and President Obama know that protecting Bristol Bay is a top priority for sportsmen. Among them will be Nanci Morris Lyon from Alaska Sportsman’s Bear Trail Lodge, who led Team Bear Trail in the 2011 Recycled Fish 24 Hour Fish-A-Thon. Team Bear Trail won the fundraising portion of last year’s event.
“We were happy to raise awareness and funds to fight for Bristol Bay through the 24 Hour Fish-A-Thon” said Lyon. “The support we got shows how committed anglers are to a healthy Bristol Bay, and how strongly they oppose Pebble Mine. Now we’re excited to take this message to Washington.”

Preparations underway for Celebration of Life memorial this Sunday at IGFA
As the family and friends of Capt. Jose Wejebe prepare for his Celebration of Life memorial this Sunday in South Florida, the outpouring from the boating and fishing communities continued for the popular guide, producer and TV host who was admired for his kindness and recognized for his many charitable efforts, especially in the Florida Keys.
Wejebe, 54, of Summerland Key, died early Friday evening, April 6th, after his single-engine plane he was piloting, crashed shortly after takeoff in Everglades City, Fla. Weather is believed to have been a factor. He was the respected host of the long-running Spanish Fly fishing show which began in 1995 on ESPN and later on the Outdoor Channel.
Those whose lives were touched by Jose are welcome to attend The Celebration of Life, Sunday April 15th, at 1:30 p.m., at the International Game Fish Association (IGFA) Museum in Dania Beach, Fla.
