5. What made you decide to become a sponsor of the Olive the Woolly Bugger iPad app?  PEAK believes that recruitment of young fly fishers and fly tiers is critical to the sport and to the industry.  The history of the Olive book series combined with the popularity of apps seems like a great combination to communicate to a new generation the fun that can be had fishing, fly tying and being outdoors in general.  It also provides younger persons a look at how our natural environment is all interrelated which is a first step to understanding critical issues such as conservation of resources.
