"The fish you release maybe a gift
to another, as it may have been a 
gift to you." ~ Lee Wulff      

  The brook trout is the only trout native to the eastern and mid-western United States and serves as our greatest mascot for clean headwaters. John Gierach summarily defined the concept of a Troutbum for us in his book of that same title. For us, BrookieBum defines a niche of anglers that relate to the experience of unspoiled wilderness that understand that sometimes, the line between fishing and celebrating the most special places on earth is merged. Our goal at BrookieBum is not to selfishly hide this away for ourselves, but to educate and perhaps inspire others to acknowledge the critical importance of these special fish. 

  Since 2015, BrookieBum has be a dedicated educator and active conservation group. Dedicated to bringing awareness to the eastern native brook trout. Through our efforts on FaceBook, BrookieBum has grown into a community of dedicated anglers that bring the importance of protection of the brook trout or brookie through the process of educating others. BrookieBum prides it's self on it's members, and through our YouTube Channel and FaceBook group we hope to bring even more conservation through education. BrookieBum's founder Nathan Justice, uses the power of social media as a platform for this project. With the efforts of this project, BrookieBum also partners with local Trout Unlimited chapters and other conservation groups such as Eastern Brook Trout Joint Venture. Help BrookieBum in this effort buy joining the FaceBook group, and also subscribing to the YouTube Channel. Together we can protect the eastern native brook trout.
