Recycled Fish continues to do huge things to help our fisheries. Numerous promotions, contests, giveaways, programs, etc. keep the organization moving forward and I'm always looking for new ways to help the cause.

Such a great organization and great people to promote such a wonderful message. The logo caught my curiosity, the message got me interested, and the people I've met will keep me as involved as I'm allowed to be. I've only had the pleasure of volunteering with Recycled Fish for one event, but will definitely be looking forward to more opportunities as they present themselves.

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

The knowledge they provide free of charge to anglers to improve the waters and fisheries they enjoy.

Ways to make it better...

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

More visual examples of the differences conservation can make to a fishery.

More feedback...

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

Meeting the good people of this organization. They remain excited and passionate about what they do and it's been a pleasure to get to know some of them.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

Very enthusiastic about the message and when I began volunteering were extremely encouraging and helpful. My 10-year old son was with me to help and was shown how to run the kid's game and he ran it for nearly 4 hours on his own. He had a blast.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

I would think a television show for this message, and with some of these personalities, would be incredible.

Ways to make it better...

I can't think of anything I would have done differently at this time.

In my opinion, the biggest challenges facing this organization are...

Simply peoples' unwillingness to learn something new or something different than what they're used to.

One thing I'd also say is that...

Recycled Fish, and organizations like it, are not only beneficial to the future of fishing, they are ESSENTIAL.

I attended a college that was known for it's enviromental practices. 30 years later, I found Recycled Fish and returned to my enviromental roots. We were studying Loon mortality in college, and it was found that part of it was due to them ingesting lead weights, due to fishing. At Recycled Fish, they promote the use of alternative non-toxic weights, as well as recycling, energy conservation, sustainable fishing, catch and release, and being a steward to our land and water resources. The list goes on, but I am a proud member of this organization.

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

I am now what they call an "ambassador", and I give my time freely, when they need or ask for my help. I do not get paid for my hours spent. It is a rewarding experience for me.

More feedback...

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

I enjoy talking to people and telling them about Recycled Fish, especially the children. If we can make an impact with them now, they will be stewards of the land and water in the future.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

I have met Teeg Stouffer, who is the director, and numerous professional fisherman. I have also met local volunteers who have helped out in some of our events.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

I think if they had that kind of money, they would be able to expand there presence in all 50 states, and do more to tell people about how they too can be stewards of our land and water.

Recycled Fish crossed my path while researching organizations where I could volunteer and make a difference. What a great find it was. Teeg (executive director)really impressed me with his unbridled passion for the "causes" while operating with absolute integrity. Recycled Fish has some outstanding programs aimed at giving kids the opportunitiy to enjoy the sport of fishing while educating them on how to be good stewards both on and off the water. Everyone at Recycled Fish truly believes that "our lifestyle runs downstream". My son has caught on as well. Without me prompting him, he will pick up litter and discarded fishing line at our fishing site. Recycled Fish has many great projects in the works and is positioned to reach a huge audience and with proper funding, could have a tremendous impact on our fisheries and our lifestyle.

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

Watching people outside the organization get excited about one of our projects and asking how they can help.

Ways to make it better...

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Create a full time staff. The organization has outstanding volunteers, but many projects can only be accomplished within a consistent and cohesive structure.

More feedback...

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

The people involved with Recycled Fish and knowing that we are making a difference in the quality of our fisheries and in people's lives.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

Outstanding people, truly dedicated and from diverse backgrounds.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

The possibilities are endless. There is an enormous amount of talent and tireless dedication in the organization. Recycled Fish has several great projects in the works that would have a real impact on promoting stewardship but it will take funding.

Ways to make it better...

Recycled Fish had the funding to accomplish important projects instead of putting them on hold.

In my opinion, the biggest challenges facing this organization are...

Freeing Teeg up to focus on keeping the organization on its mission path instead of having to perform many of the administrative functions himself.

One thing I'd also say is that...

Recycled Fish has accomplished a great deal in seven years with basically a volunteer staff and little funding. Just imagine its potential with the right funding and proper staffing.

Recycled Fish is an organization that promotes a lifestyle of stewardship to a very broad audience, regardless of the fact that the typical target audience is anglers. Utilizing simple ideas like, "not dumping our used oil behind the garage", to using low flow shower heads. I think the organizations strengths lie in the fact that the message is something that is really easy to follow, as well, it's some of the most simple things we can do to make a tremendous collective difference. I think, as has been acknowledged, that sometimes things seem bottle-necked; only because the growth of the cause, and the growth of the organization. It's too much for one person to handle without a lot greater delegated support network.

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

seeing youth understand that there are simple things we can do to make lasting changes that affect our environment. Having a 4 year old tell me they're going to be a steward of their waters...Wow!

More feedback...

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

to see how easy it is to reach people on an everyday subject we don't always think about.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

I'm biased; but I think we have a great core of volunteers that can do great things with the tools we are given.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

educate, share, grow, change, understand, and catch more and bigger fish!

Teeg and his team at Recycled Fish worked with out 120 person organization (the Cornhusker Flyfishers), to help raise awareness of the end-to-end effects of what we do with our watershed. Teeg briefed our group and the Recycled Fish team will be working with us this weekend to clean up around one of our local lakes.

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

being made aware of practices beneficial and harmful to the watershed.

Ways to make it better...

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

None that I can think of.

More feedback...

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

Enthusiasm and the broad focus on our water, not just at the lake or stream, but end to end.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

Very active and very knowledgeable.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

show the world what a grass roots organization can do to help provide clean water to drink now and for our childrens' future.

Ways to make it better...

Teeg hadn't got stuck in the snow on the way to our meeting.

In my opinion, the biggest challenges facing this organization are...

educating the adults so they can teach their friends and children.

One thing I'd also say is that...

Thank you Recycled Fish.

This is a great organization. For the vast majority of members it's absolutely free. For those that wish additional information the Stewardship Tips delivered by e-mail are very informative, and cause one to think about their daily lifestyle. An of course there are many, many opportunities to be a volunteer which could include some fishing time.

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

fishing clean lakes and education to the public.
