Once again the Canadian National Sportfishing Foundation (CNSF) is encouraging Canadians to join the tradition that connects us from coast, to coast, to coast, and participate in National Fishing Week.
National Fishing Week is June 29th to July 7th, 2019. It is an annual event that helps Canadians experience the thrill of this centuries-old pastime. It encourages Canadians to build memories with friends and loved ones. From the first fish reeled in, to the latest story of the one that got away, fishing fosters a passion and respect for the outdoors.
“We find that fishing is a great way to spark an interest in our natural resources. It helps us find ways we can protect them,” says Mike Melnik, Managing Director of the CNSF. “Fishing has been a part of Canada from the beginning, both as a means of sustenance and as a leisure activity. Fishing is a heritage pastime and a tradition. That is why we celebrate National Fishing Week.”
