October is considered the National Fishing Month to encourage more people to fish. This is not only important to enjoy nature, like health and happiness, but also to awaken the passion to protect what you love.
“American hunters and anglers are the backbone of conservation efforts, generating over a billion dollars a year for conservation,” said former Home Secretary Ryan Zinke, who originally declared October the national month for hunting and fishing.
In many states, purchasing hunting and fishing licenses fund conservation programs and initiatives by state fish and wildlife authorities. There are also federal funding strategies in place that offer outdoor enthusiasts buying opportunities to improve fish and wildlife protection.
For those of us who already love casting lines, National Fishing Month is a great reminder to take a break from the hustle and bustle of everyday life and spend some time in the great outdoors. Take a day off, visit a new destination, aim in a new way. When the allure of fishing has worn off, it may be time to try something new!
Educate your family and friends about the National Hunting and Fishing Month and encourage them to join you for a great time on the water or in the woods. October is the perfect time of year for both sports as the coolness of autumn makes us want to spend more time outside. It’s a great opportunity to invite new people with you and give them the opportunity to experience the joys of fishing.
Before celebrating National Fishing Month, make sure your fishing license is up to date or just buy one online. Search our website for fall fishing tips and ideas or just visit your trusted fishing hole. October is the time to put this to-do list aside and just get out!
