Protect your Right to Fish

You can join the RFA and fight back, or you could just let the government, the industrial fishing fleets, environmentalists and the politicians decide for you. Since 1996, recreational fishermen have been fighting back as members of the Recreational Fishing Alliance!

Why Join the RFA

Why Join the RFA?

Like it or not, politics plays a big factor in our daily lives –fisheries issues are no different! The fishing problems we face today that frustrate you as an angler are mainly political problems that require a political solution to fix. Being an active ‘card-carrying’ member of the RFA gives you a voice in the political process on Capitol Hill; your individual membership is our currency when walking through the door to visit a member of Congress and other key decision makers.

What Are the Benefits of Joining?

RFA has been fighting for our freedom to fish for nearly 20 years; the benefit of joining RFA is peace-of-mind that someone’s looking out for you on Capitol Hill, and the grassroots power that we provide through local chapters gives you the benefit of actually participating the political process as much or as little as you would like.

Do you think a Congressman, Senator or the President of the United States could easily ignore the political presence of 1 million strong?
