NPAA Testimonials

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

  • Scott St. Sauver

    “As a Soldier, veteran, and competitive angler, I depend on the NPAA to extend my influence and network among professional anglers in support of my veteran’s advocacy programs. Additionally, the opportunity to link with the Future Anglers Foundation creates a win-win for our central Minnesota communities growing the next generation of responsible anglers and citizens.”

  • Gary Nault

    “As a fishing guide the NPAA keeps me abreast of new products, techniques and legislation that affects my guiding business.  It keeps me on the cutting edge of the sport fishing industry. The NPAA continues to be a big supporter of Kid’s fishing programs. Getting our younger generations involved in sport fishing is more important now than ever.”

    “The NPAA is a great organization! It allows professional anglers the opportunity to work with industry companies, other anglers, and most importantly future anglers to help grow the sport.

  • Greg Karch

    “I have been a member since 2001 and have seen NPAA grow, especially in the mission to grow and protect the great sport of fishing. As a member a great membership benefit is the ‘Members Only Program’ which allows you opportunities to get discounts on merchandise from NPAA’s supporting partners. My affiliation with the NPAA has provided me tremendous support through thousands of dollars’ worth of product donations for the one hundred and thirty-seven Future Angler events I have hosted to date.  Future Angler Events introduces youth to fishing and protecting our resources through an educational fishing clinic which will help grow and protect the great sport of fishing!”

    “As a group we need to have a voice in current and future issues regarding sportfishing. With the NPAA we have that voice. Where else in the fishing world can you be part of an association that gives you a direct contact with many of the best companies in the industry. Only through the NPAA.”

  • Barb Carey

    “I joined the NPAA when I only had a dream of working in the fishing industry. The contacts I have made and the lessons I have learned have proved invaluable. From networking, to solid business advice, to actually becoming connected to professional anglers who not only share tips and advice, they have become like family to me. Well worth the investment, and the more you are involved the more you get out of it.”
