Future Angler Foundation Partners with Cabela’s School of Fish for Record-breaking Year!

Forestville, WI:  Cabela’s School of Fish, recognized by many as the leaders in kids fishing education, recently completed their 6th-year of hosting fishing classes for kids, their parents, and other adults, and did so in record-breaking fashion!  School of Fish taught 30 open-water Schools in 2018 graduating 707 “water-ready” kids and had 287 adults attend as well!  The 30 classes and 707 kids are records for the organization.

Cabela’s School of Fish has now taught 183 Schools in Minnesota, Iowa, Wisconsin, North & South Dakota, Nebraska and has graduated 3,890 kids and over 1,000 adults have attended in its existence!

“We had another awesome year with our open-water Schools, returning to several locations we have been to in the past and also expanded to our communities as well, including our first-ever Nebraska event,” stated Frisch.  “As always, our goal continues to be to provide kids and adults with the knowledge, skills, and equipment they need to get their fishing careers started.  And, just as importantly, we try to do that in a fashion that excites them about our sport!”

Frisch also lauded the program’s sponsors in helping grow Cabela’s School of Fish.  “Our supporters, many of which have been with us from day one, see the value in exposing kids and their families to fishing and the great outdoors.  Their great support allows us to provide quality education and good fishing equipment to help our students get their fishing careers off to great starts,” Frisch concluded.

In addition to Cabela’s title sponsorship, other sponsors include Larson FX Boats, Northland Fishing Tackle, Soderholm Insurance, KLN Family Brands, Shearer’s Snacks, Raymarine, Strike King, ShoreMaster, Fish On Kids Books, Distinctive Cabinet Design, Hannay’s Marine, CORE ICE, Artie’s Bait and Tackle, and Fishing the Midwest.
