Caught wind of this sweet deal from the Whitefish, Montana-based AlaskaFlyOut.com, which promotes fishing trips in the Great Land, and is heavily opposed to a massive mine in the Bristol Bay drainage.
Through March 10, five percent of revenue from any trip booked with one of 26 participating Alaska lodges, will be given directly to the Save Bristol Bay campaign and will help fight the mine.
The portfolio of participating companies includes Alaska Rainbow Lodge, Alaska River Adventures, Alaska Wilderness Safaris, Bristol Bay Lodge, Kulik Lodge, No See Um Lodge, Royal Coachman Lodge, Talaheim Lodge, Tikchik Narrows Lodge, Wild Rivers Guides, etc.

“This promotion is the perfect time to book one of Alaska’s world-class fishing lodges or outfitters before they are completely full for the 2012 season,” said Cory Luoma, Owner of AlaskaFlyOut.com. “It’s also a great opportunity for the sport fishing community to show their support for protecting Bristol Bay’s epic landscape, wildlife, and fishing waters. Simply put: You fish. We donate.”
Up to 40 million sockeye salmon return to the Bristol Bay watershed each year, supporting thousands of fishing jobs and businesses, countless wildlife, and a subsistence catch for Alaska Natives. Bristol Bay is also a sport fishing paradise with ample runs of trophy rainbow trout and other species. The proposed Pebble Mine would dig a pit at least 3 miles wide and 2,500 feet deep and would create 10 billion tons of toxic waste requiring treatment and storage forever.
