With guidance from Charleston Waterkeeper supporters and fly fishing experts, Sandie and Archer Bishop, participants of the November 18th fly fishing workshop on Dewees Island practice their casting skills.

On November 18th, to launch a partnership between Charleston Waterkeeper and the Dewees Island Conservancy, the two organizations hosted a fly fishing workshop on Dewees Island for island residents and guests.  The Dewees Island Conservancy, whose mission is to preserve and protect the natural environment on Dewees Island, will serve as a community partner for Charleston Waterkeeper’s water quality monitoring program, providing local water quality data to our growing pool of information.

All those in attendance had a great time (especially us!), and we were excited to share the story of Waterkeeper with such a passionate group of individuals. The day’s message was simple: enjoyment of our waterways comes hand-in-hand with stewardship of our waterways.
