Fishing League Worldwide has teamed with Walmart, the Recreational Boating & Fishing Foundation, Jack Link’s, Pringles and Zip Firestarters for National Fishing and Boating Week June 2-10.
National Fishing and Boating Week highlights the importance of recreational boating and fishing and will encourage all anglers to get out on the water.
The week will kick off with #ReelFun Fishing events hosted by FLW tournament anglers June 1-3 at more than 2,000 Walmart stores. The events are designed to help families prepare for fishing success as the anglers provide tips for local fisheries and guidance on tackle and gear selection. Kids will have the chance to test their casting skills and receive a free fishing lures courtesy of Wildlife Forever’s State-Fish Art Contest. Every child will also receive a future FLW Tour pro sticker. Adults get a free fishing license holder and free digital subscription to FLW Bass Fishing magazine. Everyone also receives samples of Jack Link’s beef jerky.
“We are thrilled to team with our partners at Walmart, RBFF, Jack Link’s, Pringles and Zip Firestarters to showcase National Fishing and Boating Week to the millions of Walmart shoppers and outdoor enthusiasts that attend our #ReelFun Fishing events,” said Trish Blake, FLW president of marketing, in a statement. “There are very few experiences that compare to landing your first fish, and our FLW ambassadors will be on-site to help everyone select the right gear and discuss their favorite fishing tips.”
While National Fishing and Boating week coincides with free fishing days in many states, prospective anglers are encouraged to purchase a fishing license while at Walmart. Anglers can visit takemefishing.org to check on free fishing days in their states.
“The #ReelFun events provide additional resources for families across the country to have their first #FirstCatch during National Fishing and Boating Week,” said Frank Peterson, RBFF president and CEO. “We hope everyone from curious beginners to experienced anglers and boaters will feel inspired to get out on the water and create memories with their families and friends.”
