Purchase a PEETZ limited edition Artist Series reel (for someone special this holiday season) and PEETZ Outdoors will donate $100 to The Nature Trust of BC.
Victoria-based PEETZ Outdoors have been crafting high-quality fishing reels since 1925. These Canadian-made reels are extremely durable, reliable, impeccably crafted, and perfectly suited for the unforgiving weather and big fish of the Pacific Northwest. Moreover, these reels are genuine works of art, combining old-world know-how with good form and function.
In 2015, PEETZ introduced an annual limited edition of 90 handcrafted reels known as the Artist Series Limited Edition Reel. Each reel in the Artist Series is traditionally hand-carved, numbered and signed by renowned Kwagiulth artist and master carver Jason Henry Hunt. This Artist Series has been created to bring attention and support for salmon enhancement initiatives on the West Coast.
The Nature Trust of BC acquired 165 acres along the Salmon River estuary north of Campbell River on Vancouver Island in 2015. We are working to ensure that salmon, elk and other species on the land and in the river continue to thrive. The Salmon River estuary is the only significant area of costal wetland habitat located on the relatively steep and rugged 250 km stretch of coastline from Campbell River to the network of estuaries on the Quatsino lowlands. This strategic location provides critical habitat to numerous species of wildlife and fish, including all five species of Pacific salmon.
PEETZ Outdoors has partnered with The Nature Trust of BC to support restoration work on the Salmon River. The 2017 edition of the Artist Series Limited Edition Reel is “The Hunter” and features a radial design of a bear and salmon. Each iconic piece is individually numbered and signed by Jason Hunt and retails for $799.
PEETZ Outdoors will donated $100 to The Nature Trust of BC for each special reel sold. These reels would make a treasured gift for a keen fisherman or a collector of West Coast art. Orders can be placed online at www.peetzoutdoors.com/NatureTrust
