by Richard Simms, CrappieNOW Editor
The National Professional Anglers Association (NPAA) is a non-profit, member-based association dedicated to sportfishing. For a limited time CrappieNOW readers can get a 10 percent discount on Pro memberships.
The NPAA’s membership is composed of tournament anglers, professional guides, angler educators and sportfishing/marine industry professionals who are passionate about the sport. Click here to join and use the Promo Code “CNOW23” to receive your 10 percent Pro membership discount.
The association was founded in 1997 and has grown to today’s level by working to develop programs to benefit our members and the sport. One such program includes financial and organizational support for “Future Angler Events” that are run by our members every year. “Crazy for Crappies” is just one example. Designed to help youth more easily enter the ranks of active anglers, the program offers a series of free educational fishing videos designed to capture the imagination of elementary, middle-school, and high school youth. It is perfect for family viewing while shorter custom video segments, complete with lesson plans, are ideal for sharing in classroom settings.
NPAA members have hosted more than 900 “Future Angler Events” that have impacted nearly 100,000 young anglers since 2011.
Members have varying levels of experience varying from those who just took up the sport and want to take it to a higher level, to those who have made a career of pursuing their passion on the water.
Members have a unique opportunity to network with other members at an annual conference and through access to member contact information and the association’s Facebook page.
Whether you are already a professional in the fishing industry, or whether you hope be someday, NPAA can help you achieve your dream.
