At the Recreational Fishing Alliance (RFA), we’re here to protect your right to fish!

Incorporated in 1996 as a 501(c)(4) national, grassroots political action organization, RFA is in the trenches, lobbying, educating decision makers and ensuring that the interests of America’s coastal anglers are being heard loud and clear.   Click here to learn more about what we’re up against, and why joining the Recreational Fishing Alliance (RFA) is so important when it comes to protecting your right to fish.

As your watchdog, RFA understands what recreational fishing is worth to you – we were founded specifically to represent recreational fishermen and the recreational fishing industry on marine fisheries issues on every coast, with state chapters established to spearhead the regional issues while building local support for the overall RFA mission:

“To safeguard the rights of saltwater anglers, protect marine, boat and tackle industry jobs and ensure the long-term sustainability of U.S. saltwater fisheries.”

RFA was the first national, grassroots political action organization established to represent the rights of recreational fishermen and the recreational fishing industry as a whole on marine fisheries issues, and we remain the only one.  Click here to receive free RFA email alerts and bulletins (secured through Constant Contact)!

You’ll find unique articles about fisheries management written by and about some of the most recognizable advocates in the recreational fishing community, including Gary Caputi, Barry GibsonTred BartaJim Donofrio, Jim Hutchinson, Jack Holmes, Tom Hilton and more.
