“I was one of the founding fathers of the NPAA.  Our mission was to help with the professionalism of the sport of fishing.  I truly believe that now, many years later the NPAA stands for professionalism in the truest sense of the word.  Both the anglers  and the fishing manufactures are seeing tremendous positives through their membership and the organization is growing by leaps and bounds every year!”
