For the second year in a row, Yamaha Outboards and Yamaha Pro Angler Spencer Deutz have teamed up for Project Future Angler (PFA). PFA provides one young aspiring youth the opportunity to win a trip to the 2020 NPAA Annual Conference held January 3rd-4th in Wisconsin Dells, WI.

The winner will have the opportunity to meet the best professional walleye anglers in the country as well as receive their own customized professional fishing jersey. Also included will be a NPAA Future Angler membership, conference fees, two nights lodging and a $100 gas stipend. To be eligible, the child had to write an essay on what he or she learned during one of Spencer’s National Professional Angler Association (NPAA) Future Angler Foundation (FAF) youth fishing clinics in 2019.

In 2019, Deutz held 9 youth and family fishing clinics across the Midwest, educating over 400 young anglers. Since 2010, Deutz has held over 70 NPAA FAF youth and family fishing clinics and believes he can make a significant impact on the future of fishing through education and outreach.
