We believe every human can benefit from the positive effects of fishing on mind and body. We partner with like-minded companies and individuals to communicate this message.
We help develop fishing clubs within communities and schools by donating fishing tackle, featuring local community leaders on television and encouraging support through social media.
We turn interested viewers into engaged anglers by showing how easy and accessible fishing really is. All you need is fishing tackle and someone to show you the way.
We inspire appreciation for and spark interest in recreational fishing through network and streaming broadcasts of the award-winning TV series, Lunkerville, enriched with robust and interactive social media.
Get Folks Fishing Foundation is a 501(c)3 pending nonprofit organization.
No matter how different people’s lives are, everyone experiences the same feelings when fishing: It’s meditative, exciting, introspective, and social all at once. When I created Lunkerville after 9/11, I wanted to show people how fishing is a fun and accessible stress reliever, and that anyone could do it, even a guy like me from Manhattan. Today, with mental health and social wellness at stake for so many, I’m more driven than ever to get folks fishing and share the sport’s wellness benefits. Starting the GFF Foundation is my way of focusing attention on the importance of mental health, and having my TV show Lunkerville send that message out into the world so that people realize fishing isn’t only about catching the biggest fish or a meal, but good health.
Weekly fishing TV series broadcast on Discovery Channel, World Fishing Network, Sportsman Canada, Amazon Prime Video, Fishing TV and Waypoint TV.
