U.S. Angler Population Who Comes and Who Goes

When it comes to sportfishing “churn”—anglers transitioning in and out of the sport from year to year—there’s good news and bad news, and both are surprising. The bad news is anglers are not nearly as avid as we like to think. The good news is there’s far more low-hanging fruit than we realize
when it comes to growing the sport. These and other findings are explained in this report which is first in a series from the American Sportfishing Association by Southwick Associates that sheds greater light on anglers’ fishing habits and loyalty to the sport.
