Costa Del Mar announced yesterday that legendary angler Flip Pallot is the newest member of the sunglass company’s pro staff. Pallot, whose current projects include the television series Ford’s Fishing Frontier, has dedicated the majority of his life to conservation, philanthropy and, of course, fly-fishing.
A founding member of both the Bonefish & Tarpon Trust and Casting for Recovery, Pallot has also raised money for cystic fibrosis in the Redbone Celebrity Tournament Series and for St. Jude’s Hospital through their Hooked on a Cure program. Along with his home waters of the Florida Everglades, Pallot claims the Rocky Mountains as a favorite fishing spot. Pallot joins anglers and friends Chico Fernandez and Jose Wejebe on the Costa pro staff.
