The Recreational Boating & Fishing Foundation is a nonprofit organization whose mission is to increase participation in recreational angling and boating. The foundation developed the Take Me Fishing campaign to create awareness around boating, fishing and conservation, and to educate people about the benefits of participation.

The recruitment effort for boating and fishing is focusing on attracting more women and children to the outdoor lifestyle.
