Skwala and BHA Launch Corporate Partnership
Skwala designs and produces technical apparel for the fly angler – and believes in fighting for conservation and public access
MISSOULA, Mont. — Skwala and Backcountry Hunters & Anglers announced a corporate partnership that will move both Skwala’s and BHA’s shared goals of conserving public lands and waters, sustaining and growing public access opportunities and upholding fair chase ethics in the field and on the water.
Since its launch in March 2022, Montana-based Skwala has been making waves with its inaugural apparel line introduction. The company designs and produces industry-leading technical apparel for the fly angler, including waders, jackets, insulation, sunshirts, shorts and pants. Skwala is dedicated to making gear and apparel for fly fishing that stands up to the tests of the day-to-day, week-to-week, month-to-month and year-to-year grind of chasing wild fish on public waters across North America.
Skwala embraces this collaboration with BHA on core issues that reflect both organizations’ goals to conserve North American public lands, waters and wildlife.
“Skwala was born around the desire to produce the best gear in the world for fly anglers,” said Kevin Sloan, Skwala CEO and founder. “That is not possible without also recognizing that we have to protect access to fishing waters across the country. BHA is the perfect ally in that fight for our brand.”
BHA is excited to work with a corporate partner that understands the importance of public lands and waters access and conservation.
“Partnering with Skwala is a great step toward achieving BHA’s mission of conserving public lands and waters and keeping fishing accessible to everyone,” said Josh Mills, BHA development coordinator. “Quality is key in our relationships, and we are proud to be a partner with a company like Skwala.”
