A Fly Fishing Rod and Reel For Rivers

If you’re going to invest in fly fishing, shouldn’t you invest in rivers? We’ve collaborated with SaraBella Fishing and Abel Reels to build a Forever Our Rivers fly rod and reel combo. For every package sold, over $650 goes back to rivers.

The rod is a 9’5 weight with a medium-fast action. It’s metallic charcoal gray with gold, deep blue and white threads that are hand-wrapped in Colorado by veterans and survivors. The reel seat is hand-lathed, locally sourced Russian olive, an invasive tree that plagues the west. And the Abel reel is a deep metallic blue with a golden drag knob and our signature wave in white. 

You can visit SaraBella’s website to customize your rod, or pass the word along to your favorite fishing buddies.

We Opened A Bookshop!

Rivers are such dynamic systems. You could spend a lifetime learning about them and still be surprised. So we’re building a bookshop, curating our favorite river-focused guide books, historical tales, informational tomes, even novels.

Visit Forever Our Rivers Bookshop to plan your next river adventure, find inspiration for your book club, or simply deepen your knowledge of our waterways. Ten percent of sales will fund our nonprofit partner grants. Simply shop for river stories and share the site with your friends, family, book clubs, and local schools to join the movement for healthy waterways.

Have a river-focused book suggestion? Email the idea to Clark Tate (clark@foreverourrivers.org). She’ll see if we can add it to the list.
