I have known Fish Florida since its beginning in 1998. They have helped children's fishing education programs from Pensacola to Key West! Every year, they donate thousands of fishing rods and reels to organizations that are teaching children how to fish in a responsible way. And the best part of all is seeing the smile on the children's faces when they catch their first fish! Oh, those kids are so proud of their accomplishment! Thank you, Fish Florida, for being such a wonderful organization.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

watching the children practice the fishing skills they learn, such as tying a knot, putting bait on the hook and reeling in a fish

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

suggest they do more marketing so others can learn about them and help give them donations

I don't know of any other organization whose mission is to provide guidance and financial support to groups teaching people to fish. That is what makes them so unique.
