Cheeky Fishing is teaming up with the American Fly Fishing Trade Association (AFFTA) to donate up to $3,000 to Stripers Forever and striped bass conservation during the 2018 Cheeky Schoolie Tournament. 

Cheeky and AFFTA have each agreed to donate $1 for every 5 inches of striped bass caught, released, and recorded at this year's tournament, up to $1,500 from each organization. All of the money will be donated to Stripers Forever and the conservation of wild striped bass.
“We’re proud to join AFFTA in support of an organization that’s doing so much to conserve and protect our hard-working schoolie stripers,” adds Ted Upton, CEO of Cheeky Fishing. “Our donation, and SF’s dedication, will add new value to every fish caught and released at this year’s Schoolie Tourney, and for seasons to come.”
