The Fish Florida organization is a wonderful group that is chaired by distinguished board members associated with the recreational fishing industry. Furthermore, its Executive Director, Lara Kramer, is extremely professional, personable and capable.

Fish Florida’s primary goal is to
help introduce kids to the sport of fishing, through education and access to complimentary fishing tackle – mainly rods and reels. This is of critical importance because it provides opportunities for new generations to enjoy the recreational values and challenges provided by fishing – be it in salt- or fresh waters, and also education on the importance of nature and the environment to the well-being of the sport. “Catch and release” is often an underlying theme in many of these support clinics, as well as sensible guidelines when it comes to keeping a few freshly caught fish for table fare .

Recreational fishing is one of the largest participation sports in America. It can be as simple and inexpensive as walking a canal bank or seawall, or as elaborate as heading to sea in a multi-million dollar sportfishing vessel. It reaches and rings to all walks of life.

As an individual who turned my passion for recreational fishing into a successful livelihood, through writings for a national fishing magazine (Salt Water Sportsman), hosting the nation’s most popular and longest running (27 years) saltwater fishing seminar tour (Salt Water Sportsman National Seminar Series), and going into my 14th year on national television (NBC Sports Network) with “George Poveromo’s World of Saltwater Fishing”, I feel a great obligation to make sure young children and kids are introduced to the sport I love so much. After all, they will be the ones that will promote and protect this great sport in the decades ahead.

I am proud to say I serve on the Fish Florida board. I highly encourage others to support this most worthwhile organization.
