Take Me Fishing wins Web site honors

The Take Me Fishing site won several awards in the Web Marketing Association's 13th annual WebAwards Competition.

TakeMeFishing.org was honored as an Outstanding Web site in all four categories in which it was entered: education, leisure, non-profit and sports. In addition, the site's social network, Fishington - The Fishing & Boating Capital of the Internet, was recognized with the Social Network Standard of Excellence.

"We're delighted to be recognized by the Web Marketing Association for our work that inspires participation in boating and fishing," RBFF president and CEO Frank Peterson said in a statement. "TakeMeFishing.org was developed to make planning a trip, buying a fishing license, designing a dream boat, or checking out the latest equipment easy for anyone. This is an exciting affirmation that we're on the right path."

More than 2,000 sites from 45 countries were judged in 96 industry categories during this year's competition.

Since relaunching the site in April 2008 with improved navigation and enhanced usability, TakeMeFishing.org has received more than 4.1 million unique visitors, according to the RBFF.
