Fishing FANClubs exist to teach kids how to fish.
FishAmericaNow (FAN), a 501(c)3 nonprofit corporation, partners with The Texas Parks & Wildlife Department, Certified Adult Angler Instructors and High School Fishing Clubs, creating Fishing FANClubs. We teach kids and their families how to fish. Communities across this great nation benefit.
Message from the CEO/president
Getting children outdoors and fishing can be life-changing. Research has shown what we have intuitively known all along - kids that are introduced to fishing at a young age gain a love for the outdoors while improving their lives.
"Families that fish together, stay together." Mom, dad, grandparents, interested adults - all are encouraged to be involved in FAN. Training, fishing events, annual community conservation projects and lots of fun come together in a Fishing FANClub.
High School Clubs are important to Fishing FANClubs. These teenagers assist in teaching, mentoring, one-on-one instruction and fishing events. FAN establishes unique avenues of compensation for the high school anglers, helping offset their fishing and tournament expenses. A college scholarship fund is set up for each angler that participates.
FishAmericaNow establishes Fishing FANClubs in communities throughout America.

Train up a child in the way he should go,
And when he is old he will not depart from it.
