Hooked on Fishing - Not on Drugs®
Hooked on Fishing Not on Drugs®
Hooked on Fishing - Not on Drugs® (HOFNOD) is a national angling education program for youth and families. The program uses best management practices, public/private partnerships, and quality educational materials to effectively recruit anglers from all sectors of society who become responsible stewards of aquatic resources.
HOFNOD's mission is to promote and educate the public about the sport of fishing, thereby, increasing participation in fishing and stewardship of aquatic resources. Its main goals are to teach about fishing skills, benefits of fishing, aquatic ecology and conservation and keeping kids drug free.
This angling education curriculum is administered by the Future Fisherman Foundation. In Florida, HOFNOD is coordinated by the Florida Youth Conservation Centers Network of the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission.
