I stumbled across the link to Recycled Fish after signing up on Angler's Legacy. I thoroughly checked the organization out and was instantly impressed by the list of their corporate partners. I believe the list contained around eighty-five different companies that support Recycled Fish’s cause to promote a lifestyle of stewardship while both on and off the water. This list of partner companies was not limited to just the fishing industry, in fact, it includes everything from household to gardening products, pet food to plumbing needs, sporting goods to water filters and the list goes on and on. At first glance one would assume that this “Lifestyle of Stewardship” pertains only to anglers, but in reality this message pertains to every person on the planet. We all need clean water and without it nothing can survive, so we all must take the appropriate steps to conserve our natural resources, whether we fish or not. This statement holds true for the all socio-economic classes and every nation. The principles behind the cause are clearly demonstrated in the “Weekly Stewardship Tips” as these tips promote , enlighten, and encourage the wise use of natural resources and conservation efforts,. These tips also have very real applications for use in everyday living as well as for businesses and industries. They do not require a major life change; just a rethinking about how we use products and the actions we take everyday. Some of the tips Recycled Fish publishes will actually help people save money as people begin to incorporate this Lifestyle of Stewardship into their every living . I joined Recycled Fish in October 2008 and in 2009 I signed up as a volunteer which lead to the opportunity to travel the nation spreading the word and encouraging others to take the Stewardship Pledge to conserve our natural resources, protect the environment through simple yet effective methods, and promote our fisheries. I have the pleasure of traveling from Michigan to Alabama and from Georgia to Texas to sport shows, ice fishing events, and major fishing tournament to spread the cause. Recycled Fish is also involved in many children focused groups in efforts to educate them of the splendor of the outdoors and what they can do as the inheritors of the world to promote a healthier planet as well as the future of sport fishing. I personally recommend, endorse, and encourage everyone to join Recycled Fish because their principles are not just for the sportsman at heart; they are applicable for maintaining ecological balance, wise use of natural resources without destroying the ecological balance of our fisheries.
