NFSP is the trade name of the Fishing Education Foundation, a 501 (C)(3) non-profit organization dedicated to helping schools and organizations teach fishing to youth in public and private schools.
"The goal of the National Fishing in Schools Program is to teach youth of all ages the fundamentals of fishing so they have the knowledge and skills to go out and catch fish."

"I wanted to say that I am very impressed with the quality of the whole equipment kit - targets, rods, reels, storage, etc.
I am so thankful to receive assistance with this and look forward to implementing it with our students/school. They are going to love it.
Thanks again for all that you do,"
The Watson Institute, APE Teacher
"Last semester was a real eye-opener for a lot of my students. They found a lot of success in the gym catching the FishTargets. They absolutely had a blast.
It's great to see a program like this in the schools. Your kit was the key: with all the tools to turn on students who would otherwise be playing video games. I hope more schools across the state and country can find a way to incorporate this course into their curriculum."
