Welcome to our 2nd episode in a short series we've put together to emphasize the importance of introducing someone new to the sport of fishing. This week we have a conversation with Pat Neu, director of The Future Angler Foundation. FAF is a 501(c)(3) non-profit membership organization formed in April of 2012 by a group of anglers dedicated to helping grow the sport of fishing through education and outreach.
When you think of organizations like FAF, you often immediately think of kids and yes, that is a big part of it. Pat is quick to point out it is called The Future Angler Foundation for a reason. Their goal is to reach potential new anglers of all ages, race, and gender to the sport of fishing and educate them on how to catch fish and protect the resource. This educational component is critical for the future of the sport.
The need for The Future Angler Foundation in the fishing industry is more critical than ever if we want to sustain the sport for future generations. That's why we feel every angler needs to hear this episode and then take action to help support the cause be it by volunteering your time or donating resources.
Our call to action stands: introduce a new person to the sport of fishing. We're better together and together we'll make an impact!
