Billings MT 59102 Feb 18, 2014


The purpose of this letter is to thank you for your very generous contribution to the Public Land and Water Access Association. The $1,647.00, representing the proceeds from the events you held at your shop, will go a long way toward the effort to keep our public land and water available to all who wish to enjoy them.

We hope your actions will inspire other retail businesses to help PLWA stem the tide of efforts to privatize and commercial the opportunities these public trust resources provide in our great state.

I will request that this letter be posted on our website, plwa.org, in order to further recognize the gift you and your East Rosebud Fly Shop has made to our cause. Although we have recently won a significant victory in the Montana Supreme Court, this fight is not over. Fortunately, you, along with the various Chapters of Trout Unlimited, have really stepped up lately to help ensure that future generations will enjoy the same great stream access our generation has enjoyed.

Again, thank you

John Gibson
President, PLWA
