The wildfire that has swept through Maui has left a trail of destruction in its wake, encompassing both natural landscapes and human habitats. The flames have devoured acres of lush forests, grasslands, and vegetation, challenging the island’s delicate ecosystem. Luckily, the fly fishing community has come together, yet again, with Josh Mills’ push to raise a minimum goal of $50k to support the local Maui community.

Josh Mills and the #FliesFor community are back making their impact on those affected by the devastating fires that have struck the beautiful island of Maui, Hawaii.
