A recent article by the Huffington Post describing the numerous benefits of fishing can only further the advocacy of the Recreational Boating & Fishing Foundation, RBFF president Frank Peterson said.
Titled “How Fishing Makes You A Better Person (According To Science),” the article was posted Saturday at the Huffington Post website as part of the online media outlet’s Go Rogue series, which explores how outdoor sports contribute to a healthier, happier and more adventurous life.
“Since the article was posted we’ve had more than 3,500 additional Facebook likes,” Peterson told Trade Only Today on Tuesday. “Anytime you can get into those larger publications, it only helps to widen the pool of potential people out there — and this article didn’t cost us anything but a half hour of my time for the interview.”
The article cites the RBFF’s 2014 Special Report on Fishing, released in July, for its data.
“Our research is really showing us that unplugging and getting together with friends and family are more important than ever in our increasingly disconnected lives,” Peterson said.
