More and more anglers are looking for a way to make the American pastime of fishing into a profession. The term "professional" in the context of fishing can mean many things. It can refer to a tournament angler who pays an entry fee with hopes of winning money, even earning a living that way. It might be a professional guide or charter captain. It can be an angler involved with industry promotion, or an angler who educates other fishermen about the sport. Each of these professions requires skill, industry connections and constant improvement, as well as the ability to interact with the public in a professional manner. All of that is available through the NPAA.
