President and CEO of the Recreational Boating & Fishing Foundation Frank Peterson and Boy Scouts of America Fishing Committee Chairman Ben Jelsema recently signed a partnership agreement to support Boy Scout fishing through its BSA Certified Angling Instructor program.
“Our goal is to double the number of Certified Angling Instructors with BSA, increasing the opportunities for Scouts ages 6 to12 to get involved in fishing,” said Peterson. “This partnership aligns nicely with our mission to get more people out on the water fishing and boating, in turn generating critical funds for state aquatic conservation activities.”
RBFF will aid the Boy Scouts of America in teaching youth to enjoy the outdoors, enjoy boating and fishing activities, and protect the environment and waterways. For more info, visit www.takemefishing.org and www.scouting.org.
