Take Me Fishing joined forces with Markel Boat Insurance to reach site visitors with enhanced safety content.

"The content that Markel will provide to TakeMeFishing.org will help to increase public awareness of sound fishing and boating practices. We are excited to be working with such a great partner," said Frank Peterson, president and CEO of the Recreational Boating & Fishing Foundation, in a statement.

Throughout TakeMeFishing.org, visitors will find boating and fishing tips, safety recommendations and insurance guidelines from Markel. The insurer also has created a custom landing page for visitors to review coverage options and to discuss their insurance needs with Markel agents.

"Markel is excited to partner and support the Take Me Fishing campaign because we believe in the campaign's laudable mission, which is to get more Americans involved in boating and fishing," said Ted Wentzel, Markel marketing director.
