Future Fisherman Foundation and Zebco Renew
Tackle for Educators Program for 2018-2019
(June 20th 2018): Zebco Brands and the Future Fisherman Foundation (F3) have renewed their agreement to continue the very popular “Tackle for Educators” program launched last year as part of both companies R3 efforts to Recruit, Retain and Reactivate anglers across the country.
The renewed agreement is designed to put rods and reels in the hands of Educators, State Fish & Wildlife personnel as well as community group leaders who are all involved with getting young people out on the water enjoying the great sport of fishing. This program helps take the guess work out of what type of equipment they need to buy and creates four distinct packages that fit almost every budget and need.
The packages range from basic spincast combos to the ultra-durable Advanced Educator kit which utilizes the legendary Zebco 33 that is built to withstand thousands of hours of use and abuse. There is literally something for everyone within these four packages and the best part of all is they are available at a substantially reduced price!
“We are absolutely thrilled to be renewing our agreement with Zebco so that we can keep the tremendous momentum that we have started with this program” stated F3 Executive Director Mark Gintert. “Zebco, like every other business in the fishing industry, is facing increased cost of materials, production and transportation but in the face of that they went above and beyond to minimize the impact to Educators and continue to offer incredible value.” offered Gintert. “We couldn’t be happier with the success of the program as well as the cooperation between the two organizations!”
Steve Smits, President of Zebco Brands remarked, “Zebco is committed to growing fishing participation and the Future Fisherman Foundation is a wonderful partner, helping us provide affordable access to the tools educators need to grow our sport!”
