Tackling the Problems


Our mission is to teach and mentor youth through fishing programs, to help them find their own true value of life, and to preserve and protect the great outdoors.

How TACTF Started

Annually more than 58 million men, women, and children go fishing.

Kendall Newson began the 501(c)(3) non-profit organization Teach a Child to Fish, Inc., to increase outdoor fishing educational activities for children.

His love for fishing began at the age of five. His father, an avid fisherman, would take the entire family fishing on a regular basis. After his career in the NFL as a wide receiver for the Jacksonville Jaguars, Kendall’s love for fishing increased, and he developed the desire to teach children all over the world. His outdoor fishing activity programs also raise awareness of environmental conservation.
