The Fishing Foundation

FISHING FOUNDATION DESCRIPTION

The Fishing Foundation is open to anyone who wants to fish regardless of age, race and gender.

Special consideration will be given to underserved organizations like inner city youth groups, senior citizen centers, government and non-governmental agencies. Initially outreach will be within the greater Cleveland area. This includes many youth organizations such as the Boys and Girls Club of Cleveland, the Boy Scouts and the Girl Scouts; senior citizen centers, such as the McGregor Home, Eliza Bryant Center, and the Judson Center; government agencies, including the Cuyahoga County Fatherhood Initiative, the Cuyahoga Child and Family Services, Cuyahoga County Health and Family Services and several non-governmental agencies such as the Red Cross and the United Black Fund of Greater Cleveland.

For advanced anglers, The Fishing Foundation will offer intermediate level seminars on using premium fishing gear, artificial lures and advanced fishing tactics.

Goals:

• Train first-time and intermediate anglers in the sport of fishing.
• Improve knowledge and skill of the sport
• Encourage a life-long appreciation for the great outdoors
• Increase the participation in the sport of fishing

Objectives:

• Give individuals an opportunity to experience the joy of fishing from shore in a safe, supervised environment.
• Educate participants about fishing fundamentals and techniques, natural resources, water safety, and fish species.
• Provide an opportunity to commune with nature and appreciate the great outdoors.



The mission of The Fishing Foundation is to enrich people's lives through the sport of fishing by offering classes and fishing from shore.

FISHING FOUNDATION OVERVIEW

Fishing is the fourth most popular sport state in the United States. Over 34 million people fish. Part of the lure of fishing is that you don’t have to be a “world class” athlete to participate or need a great deal of equipment to get started.

Some of the benefits of fishing include:

- Communing with nature
- Bonding with family and friends
- Gaining an appreciation for the environment
- Learning about water safety, conservation and fish species.

The Fishing Foundation (TFF) was formed as a 501 C3 in January 2010 by long time competitive angler Dennis Knowles, the past President of one of the oldest African-American bass fishing club in the U.S., the North Coast Black Bass Anglers Association. After organizing a number of “free” fishing events for several groups of teens and adults, and seeing first-hand the amazing response, Knowles realized the need for a dedicated organization that would expose people to the joys of fishing.

The organization will offer area residents, youth groups, adult organizations, schools, non-governmental organizations and anyone who’s interested in fishing a safe place to fish, under supervised conditions along with seminars and training.
