Coco Wood Fishing Fly Kit Coconut palms are an amazingly resourceful coastal tree that during their life provide everything from food to roofing materials to compost. Furthermore, when the palm reaches the end of its natural life, the resins in its wood solidify resulting in a uniquely beautiful hardwood timber.
Coco Wood Fishing Fly Kit Whilst stands of over 3 million such naturally dead coconut palms occur throughout the coastal areas of East Africa, coco wood is not generally available to a timber industry which continues to rely on unsustainable supplies of forest hardwood from the deforested areas of Southern Tanzania, Congo and Zaire.
Coco Wood Fishing Fly Kit To relieve pressure on wild slow growing hardwood forests, create a sustainable supply of hardwood, and generate a needed income for coastal peoples, farmers are now processing coco wood for the local timber market with the assistance of DANIDA. Wild Living's Coco Wood Fishing Fly Kit incorporates the conservation value of coco wood together with the livelihoods value of community hand tied fishing flies.
By buying this unique product you are not only enjoying the natural benefits of coco wood, you are also assisting local communities to benefit from the coastal coconut plantations.
