Our Member's Explain Why The PAC is Essential!

During ICAST, several of ASA’s members provided video testimonial as to why it’s so important to support the PAC with the goal of inspiring others to give to this important tool that we use to have our voice heard on issues that impact recreational fishing. The video is expected to be ready in time for the 2017 Sportfishing Summit.

Interviewed for the video were: Kirk Immens, Sportco. Marketing, Inc.; Dave Bulthuis, Costa; Joe Crumrine, Bullet Weights, Inc.; Aledia Tush, CB’s Saltwater Outfitters; Gary Zurn, Big Rock Sports, LLC; Bill Shedd, AFTCO Manufacturing Co., Inc.; Chris Megan, On the Water, LLC; and Tim Schoonover – Maxima USA.

115th Congressional Directory

115th Congressional Directory

A PAC appreciation gift is being mailed to all PAC members who have contributed in 2017 along with a Congressional Directory for the first session of the 115th Congress.

This congressional directory is a great advocacy tool which serves as a quick reference for important information on every member of Congress.

Developing a strong SportfishingPAC is so important to advancing our industry’s priorities in Congress. Our members’ support strengthens ASA’s reputation and effectiveness as a trade association.
