Mac grew up fishing the 10,000 lakes of Minnesota, and spent a few summers in Alaska on the Mulchatna River as a fly-fishing guide. Katherine was raised in Brooklyn, but lucky enough to learn to fly fish at the age of 10, and spent time exploring the Shohola and Blooming Grove rivers; which harbor protected streams like Beauty Pool and Footbridge.

These childhood sanctuaries are invaluable to shaping our children's minds and how they view the world. Each year, we vow to donate a portion of our proceeds to the National Parks Conservation Association to aid in the protection and conservation of our forests and the wildlife who live there.
