Here’s a press release from Wildlife Foreever on our Angler Educator Greg Karch
Fishing Pro Leads with Clean.Drain.Dry.
Brooklyn Center, MN – Professional angler and founder of Learn 2 Fish With Us, Greg Karch, incorporates Clean.Drain.Dry. into his fishing career and youth events across the Midwest. The Wisconsin based angler is committed to stopping invasive species and recently branded his tow vehicle and tournament shirt with the Clean.Drain.Dry. message.
“Fishing is my life, if I can help protect it by reinforcing the simple message, it’s the least I can do to ensure
a resource I depend on. My truck has a cool new wrap this year which I hope will catch some eyes’. I’m proud to support Clean.Drain.Dry”, said Karch.
Greg is also a member of the National Professional Angler Association who has worked for years to help educate anglers on how to prevent invasive species. Providing tools and consistent best management practices used across the country and Canada, allows partnerships to work in unison with local, state and federal outreach efforts.
“I grew up watching the legends of fishing like Roland Martin, Al Linder and Babe Winkelman. Catch and Release was one of the first conservation initiatives they preached and through public and industry support, we ultimately saved America’s great fisheries. Clean.Drain.Dry. works to instill that same ethic to change behavior and halt the spread of invasive species” said Pat Conzemius, Conservation Director.
Professional anglers are ambassadors to fishing and help foster resource stewardship to both young and old. Armed with the three simple steps on how to prevent invasive species will help slow the spread and help when new invaders arrive. Learn more at www.Learn2FishWithUs.com
