The Recreational Boating & Fishing Foundation reports that Anglers’ Legacy Ambassadors who responded to a recent survey say they each purchase approximately $153 in boating supplies and $140 in fishing tackle and equipment per year.

Key findings of the survey include:

  • two-thirds of Ambassadors own a boat
  • nearly 90 percent have fished from a boat in the last year
  • more than half fish at least 20 times a year

The survey was conducted online by RBFF in October, with 5,085 respondents. It has a margin of error of plus or minus 2 percent at a 95 percent level of confidence.

Anglers' Legacy is an RBFF program that rallies the country's most avid anglers to introduce newcomers to the sport. Almost 75,000 Ambassadors have signed on to the program since its inception in May 2006.
