What better way to kick off the new year than by joining fellow fishermen and fisherwomen from around the Midwest at the National Professional Anglers Association (NPAA) conference Jan. 4–6 in Minneapolis. Learn 2 Fish With Us President and Executive Director, Greg Karch, led a seminar called “Make a Wave by Hosting a Future Angler Event” on Saturday, Jan. 5 and Sunday, Jan. 6 to help fellow anglers learn what it takes to host a fishing workshop for kids.
The NPAA is a nonprofit organization dedicated to sportfishing. Members range from professional guides to angler educators to passionate industry professionals, and the annual conference gives anglers of all experience levels a sneak peek at new fishing gear, as well as keynote and breakout sessions covering a wide-range of topics.
Captain Greg’s seminar covered various topics including the ins and outs of an NPAA-sponsored angler educator event, identifying your audience and key topics to cover when hosting a future angler event.
“I loved leading a seminar amongst so many like-minded individuals at the NPAA conference,” Karch said. “I am so passionate about teaching kids how to fish, and I hope I inspired other anglers to give back to their communities by hosting NPAA-sponsored fishing workshops.”
