Recreational Boating and Fishing Foundation
The Virginia-based nonprofit Recreational Boating and Fishing Foundation — the folks behind the national “Take Me Fishing” campaign — tap into the cultural demographics of angling in a new study, the “2014 Special Report on Fishing.”
Among its findings:
- 83.7 percent of current anglers fished as children ages 12 or younger.
- 14 percent of Hispanics living in the U.S. participate in fishing.
- The worst thing about fishing is baiting the hooks or taking the fish off the hook:
Males 5.5 percent, Females 29.7 percent.
