There's been a lot of growth and change in the fishing industry since Barb Carey first got her start about 16 years ago. For this episode of Five Minute Friday, we want to applaud the marketing teams out there who are getting things right! More and more are getting on board making an effort to include women, and for that, we say THANK YOU!
One of Al's recent brainstorms was the Fishing Careers Workshop. Now in its third year, Al's talks about this year's guests, the many options available to those looking to work in the industry and how people can sign up for the workshop.
"Why Fishing Will Die If We Don't Fix This..." That's a hard-hitting title of a recent podcast episode by Salt Strong's Joe Simonds. If that's not an attention grabber, I'm not sure what is! Needless to say, it certainly grabbed mine.
In songwriting, there's a phenomenon we talk about where two writers in two totally different locations and even genres will grab the exact same clever idea for a song out of the ether at the same time and write two very similar songs. I'm not saying that's exactly what happened here, but as we were planning this series on the importance of introducing new anglers to the sport of fishing I noticed our friends over at Salt Strong were on a similar tack.
