Paul Bugeja

Vice Chair - Vermont Board of the Native Fish Coalition

PAUL BUGEJA has a passion for wild native brook trout that began at a small pond in Branden, Vermont, in the early 1970's.  He has fished throughout the state while travelling for business and pleasure, including both the storied rivers and lesser-known streams.  Paul has also spent time in Wyoming and Montana pursuing wild native cutthroat, and in Ireland fishing for native sea-run brown trout and Atlantic salmon that are struggling due to habitat degradation.  He also served on the board of Central Vermont Trout Unlimited for several years.
