Who We Are

Kids Need to Fish

Our Mission

Fish America Now (FAN) believes that all kids need to fish and deserve the opportunity to gain valuable skills while instilling a love for the outdoors. FAN helps kids create memories and lessons that last a lifetime. 

Why We Exist

Our foundation was created to make a difference in the lives of kids by teaching them valuable skills and lessons—away from devices while they’re outdoors. Technology use is at an all-time high among school students, decreasing the amount of time they’re spending outside.

Who We Help

We help kids, parents, grandparents, families, and mentors by creating positive outdoor experiences through fishing, as well as environmental and aquatic education.

What Sets Us Apart

FAN is an open door to the great sport of fishing. Our planned curriculums, certified teachers, and events put students in position to succeed.
