The Fish America Now (FAN) Foundation exists to improve kids’ lives by teaching them how to fish. Through our Fishing FANClubs, fishing blog, and network of licensed, professional fishing guides, we create a unique program for educating, mentoring, and inspiring kids to learn to fish.
Getting children and young adults outdoors and into fishing can be life-changing. Research has shown that kids who are introduced to fishing at a young age gain a love for the outdoors while living happier and healthier lives.
Teaching, mentoring, and fishing is a wonderful way to improve the lives of the next generation.
