: Opening a store

Hey all,

I'm a newbie to this forum and I must say this is the best fly fishing destination I have found yet. Anyway I'm working on an online store I will be launching here in a couple of months, and I am interested in donating 5% of sales to Trout Unlimited. Has anyone has any experience with this organization? Is this a good cause or should I be looking somewhere else to donate? Any help would be great.

What exactly is the CCA?

Coastal Conservation Association, a group I've been meaning to join this season.

Good luck with the new store! Its great you're gonna give back to help the resource.

I haven't decided on which organization to donate to defiently. I am willing to check out any suggestions. I hope to fine somewhere where my small contributions can be put to good use.

Good choice

TU is a great organization as is CCA either one has done great things for fish and fish habitat. You can't go wrong either way.

How about 5% of sales to support The Flyfishing Forum? :)

I probably would in exchange for some advertising.

Welcome! Sorry I've been nose-to-the-grindstone today; trying to get things buttoned up for the upcoming season ;)

Looking forward to having you on board, I will follow up shortly!

I have to admit to some prejudice as a past president of a TU chapter, but I think it is a great organization working on all it can to ensure that our kids' kids get to continue to enjoy this fishing game. I would endorse your supporting them.

What would you guys suggest in terms of products to carry in the store. Instead of gear I'm mostly going to be carrying "gift" type items...prints,books,etc. Any suggestion?
