Chad Pike was recently bestowed with the prestigious Lefty Kreh Award for Lifetime Achievement in Conservation by the Bonefish & Tarpon Trust (BTT) during their 12th Annual NYC Dinner & Awards Ceremony on October 10.

Jim McDuffie, President and CEO of BTT, expressed his admiration for Chad's exceptional leadership within the conservation community.

“This is a well-deserved recognition for Chad’s leadership across the conservation community, from his role as Chairman of the North Atlantic Salmon Fund and as a board member of the National Fish and Wildlife Foundation to his longstanding commitment to Bonefish & Tarpon Trust,” McDuffie said.
