Awareness of Anglers Legacy and Take Me Fishing Programs Tops 50%


More than half of U.S. anglers are aware of the Anglers’ Legacy and Take Me Fishing programs, according to a recent survey. In a March 2008 poll of almost 2,000 anglers by, anglers were asked if they have heard of the Anglers’ Legacy Program or the Take Me Fishing website. Of the anglers surveyed, well over half (53%) said they were aware of Anglers’ Legacy and Take Me Fishing. About 47% of anglers reported they were not aware of the programs.

Anglers’ Legacy and the Take Me Fishing™ national campaign are programs of the Recreational Boating & Fishing Foundation (RBFF), a non-profit organization dedicated to growing participation in fishing, boating and aquatic stewardship.

“These survey results will help us grow our Anglers’ Legacy and Take Me Fishing programs and increase participation nationwide in boating and fishing,” said RBFF President and CEO Frank Peterson. “Over the next several months, we will be expanding our Anglers’ Legacy program with rewards features for Ambassadors and announcing a new Take Me Fishing campaign which captures the excitement and memories associated with boating and fishing. Together, these programs could have a large financial impact on both industries and statewide conservation efforts.”
