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.
