NPAA Testimonials

Here’s why some of our members feel it is important and beneficial to be part of the NPAA:

  • David Ittner

    “Yamaha has been a Gold Partner of NPAA for the past 6 years, and presenting sponsor of the FAF – Future Anglers Foundation – for the past 3 years.  These two venues have proved to be invaluable to Yamaha’s portfolio of assets. Our support for the NPAA allows us to network with industry anglers and professionals on all levels that believe in the future of our sport, and together we continue to pursue our passion both on and off the water.”

    “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!”

    “Being a member of the NPAA has had a huge impact on the choices I have made in furthering my fishing career.  I strongly recommend attending a conference, not only for the knowledge you gain, but also for the networking opportunities.  If you do one thing to further your career this year,  joining the NPAA should be it, you won’t be disappointed.”

    “The NPAA and the Future Angler Events they host are a tremendous asset to Ranger Boats and The National Walleye Tour. We’re a family-focused organization and the NPAA’s efforts on behalf of the sport at large and especially among young, future anglers are invaluable. We’re proud to support this organization and encourage other companies involved with the sport to do the same.”
