EP. 272 NPAA Conference and Women’s Kayak Fishing Meetup Recap
Special thanks to Lieza Fitzgerald, Gabriella McGrath and Debbie Hanson for sharing their thoughts.
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.
