Ep 48: The Fly Fishing Collaborative, with Bucky Buchstaber

Bucky Buchstaber is the Founder and Executive Director of the Fly Fishing Collaborative, an organization dedicated to harnessing the fly fishing community to fight human trafficking. Bucky decided that he wanted to dedicate his life to helping others, and figured the best way to do so was to channel his passion for fishing into nonprofit work. The Fly Fishing Collaborative uses money raised through direct donations, film events, banquets, raffles, flies, and other products to build aquaponics farms for orphanages and safe homes. These farms not only provide an eco-friendly way to produce healthy and delicious food for victims of abuse, but also provide jobs for them. In this episode, we cover Bucky’s upbringing as a kid with the fishing “bug,” how he came up with the Fly Fishing Collaborative, the work they’ve done so far, and also some incredible stories of fishing overseas.
