MIAMI (March 17, 2017) — Recognizing the enduring challenge of defending watersheds and resources, Nautilus Reels is pleased to support the efforts of Trout Unlimited’s Alaska Program and their work to protect Bristol Bay and the related ecosystems of the region with a unique customized reel.
As you all know, everything is bigger and better here in Texas, including our outdoor recreation opportunities. But, as much as we love to boast about how big and great we are as a state, there’s one place that’s even bigger and wilder – Alaska.
A majority of Alaskans came to oppose the Pebble Mine (though it was not easy) because it would affect the fisheries and the clean water supply located in Bristol Bay.
Early last year, the combination of bad P.R., spooked investors, declining copper prices, logistical and infrastructural challenges, unresolved court battles, and a proposed intervention by the Environmental Protection Agency seemed to have rendered Pebble an extreme long shot. Northern Dynasty’s stock, worth twenty-one dollars a share five years earlier, bottomed out at twenty-one cents.
