Meeting eligible bachelors around these parts can be a tall order. Ask any single lady who will probably tell you that Southwest Florida is notorious for being the home of “the newlywed and the nearly dead.” But, things are looking up — especially if you prefer your man to be environmentally conscious. To snag a good catch, look no further than the newly organized “Captains for Clean Water.” Formed a little over a year ago by local fishing guides and trial attorneys, this growing nonprofit works to send Okeechobee Lake waters through the Everglades to Florida Bay in an effort to keep our gulf waters clean. The group holds a variety of fundraisers and events throughout the year, which are largely populated by tall, handsome dudes in Columbia fishing shirts and sexy beards. Get involved — help save our local estuaries and fall in love with activism.
