well done.  how big is the ozark alliance?

They don’t have a membership but they do have a very large following and support from local anglers when they have their Bronze Fest to raise money for a specific conservation effort or group. Ozarks Smallmouth Alluance is what Ryan calls huu if s grassroots effort. I believe there is also a Missouri Smallmouth Alluance.?

Thanks for posting the video! I wasn't able to make the session but looking forward to watching and trying to tie some up soon. Having fished for smallmouth in the Ozarks and seen Ryan on social media and youtube, I think Ozark Smallmouth Alliance is an awesome organization and love hearing about the smallmouth story of the area. Thanks Ryan and ISA for hosting the tying session!!
