Lindy Supports Future Fisherman Foundation
LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (May 6, 2010) – Lindy Legendary Fishing Tackle has joined forces with the Future Fisherman Foundation (F3) to help foster the sport of fishing for generations to come.
“Lindy believes in the Foundation and its programs, and felt that as a leader in the fishing industry, we should do our part to help introduce the next generation of anglers to the sport,” said Chris Gulstad, Lindy’s public relations manager.
To that end, the company is offering F3-accredited educators – including Physh Ed teachers, Boys and Girls Clubs, Boy Scouts leaders and Hooked On Fishing Not On Drugs leaders’ premium Thill Fish’n Foam and Round-A-Bout bobbers at significant discounts when purchased through F3’s new Tackle For Educators program. New for 2010, the lineup of colorful foam and plastic floats is available in a variety of shapes and sizes perfect for panfish and other youth-friendly species.
Lindy’s folding rod totes, each of which carries 4 to 6 rod-and-reel combos, also will be available through F3’s Tackle for Educators program.
“Thill bobbers and Lindy rod totes will certainly help our teachers as they give kids hands-on fishing experience,” said F3 executive director Keith Sutton. “Since its inception in 1986, the Foundation has provided fishing education programs for more than 1 million children nationwide. This wouldn’t be possible without the generous support of companies like Lindy and the customers who buy their products. Working together we can continue that tradition and ensure today’s kids are tomorrow’s anglers. That’s a goal worth striving for.”

Established in 1986, the Future Fisherman Foundation unites the sportfishing industry and a nationwide network of state outdoor educators, national conservation groups and youth organizations dedicated to introducing America’s youth to angling and the outdoors. These efforts help people of all ages have safe and enjoyable fishing experiences that foster conservation ethics.
