New Initiative Directs More Funds To Salmon Habitat Programs
The Victoria Boat & Fishing Show is getting ready for its 24th year of bringing outdoor lifestyle enthusiasts together at the Pearkes Recreation Centre on Tillicum Road in Victoria.
PEETZ and PSF
PEETZ Outdoors is pleased to report it will join the Pacific Salmon Foundation ("PSF") booth over the weekend and will be donating a 5 inch Evolution Reel with a Flasher & Lure Package for PSF's weekend draw. Come on down to the booth for a visit and make sure you enter!
New Initiative with PSF
PEETZ is also excited to introduce its new program that will see an even greater percentage of online reel sales donated to the REEL CHANGE Program. This initiative with PSF, which began in 2015, PEETZ has committed to direct a portion of all online trolling reel sales to PSF's salmon conservation programs throughout the Pacific Northwest.
At the 2016 Victoria Boat & Fishing Show, PEETZ will provide the first look at the new fishing evolution reels that will carry the PSF logo. Using the code "PSFSALMON10", you can get 10% off these specially branded reels online and an additional 10% of proceeds will be directed to salmon conservation and habitat restoration via PSF initiatives.
