Rebuilding Numbers of U.S. Anglers

It’s no secret that recreational fishing and boating are facing an incredible challenge. Current participation trends show younger, more diverse audiences are reluctant to take up fishing and boating, all while older white males are aging out of these activities. To address these challenges head-on, the U.S. Recreational Boating & Fishing Foundation has embarked on a grand effort to grow participation to 60 million anglers by 2021.

This week on Blue Fish Radio Frank Peterson, President and CEO of the Foundation outlines the goals and resources found at www.TakeMeFishing.Org designed to have 2nd-place angling surpass jogging as the most popular outdoor activity.
