MOUNTAIN HOME, Ark. – The National Professional Anglers Association (NPAA) has partnered with the Cabela’s National Walleye Tour and will offer Future Angler events at each NWT tour stop in 2013. The youth-oriented activities will include a free rod and reel combo and “Future Pro” t-shirt to the first 100 children present at each event.
The nonprofit NPAA is focused on growing the sport of fishing and works actively with the Future Angler Foundation to host Future Angler events across the country each year. Each Future Angler Event features educational seminars and training for youth from top-notch NPAA members – many of whom are seasoned, professional anglers. In 2012, NPAA Future Angler events impacted more than 8,700 youth and 4,000 parents.
“The NPAA and Future Angler events are a tremendous addition to the NWT,” said Anthony Wright, Tournament Director. “We’re a family-focused organization and their efforts on behalf of the sport at large and especially among young, future anglers are invaluable. We’re thrilled to have their support and look forward to reaching so many young anglers and their families in 2013.”
“Our mission for years has been to grow the sport and I can think of nothing better than getting young people involved,” said NPAA Executive Director Pat Neu. “The Future Angler events allow us to interact with so many children and families, and most all of them have a genuine passion for fishing. They’re really perfect ambassadors for our sport.” Read More
