Many programs strive to introduce fishing to a younger generation, and high school fishing competitions are a great way to pique their interest.
The Student Angler Federation’s High School Fishing program is generating interest among teens.
Through the program, student fishing clubs from high schools compete against one another within their state. The competition extends to regional and national competitions as well.
