Who: Portland-based Soul River Inc. (@soulriverinc) is Navy veteran (…and hero of a human being) Chad Brown’s non-profit which introduces inner city youth to fly fishing and wild places, pairing them with U.S. veterans as mentors to develop next generation outdoor leaders and stewards of the environment. They take inner city kids on river ‘deployments’ all over the country to teach, learn, grow and heal. They move the needle, change the image, and shift the paradigm.

Inscribed on the rod spine are the words “soul rivers run wild” and engraved in the black walnut reel seat is the word “LOVE” …As Chad says, “Love is king”. Included are 2-identical tips, brass and aluminum rod tube, and handmade rod sack from Between Two Banks
