Why Knot Fishing

-- Why Knot Fishing Team --
I had the privilege of connecting with a new group of New England anglers through social media earlier this year. One of the founders of the group, Joe G. (@j_googe on Instagram), started a conversation with me about the group and I offered to help spread the good word.

Joe sent me this info to share about their mission.

"Why Knot Fishing is a community fishing company based on the North Shore of Massachusetts, but with team of anglers located around the state.  We will be focusing on providing fishing reports, fishing reviews and fun fishing stories.  We will also be running events over the summer including a surf fishing event on Plum Island on June 14th and a kayak fishing even later in the summer.

We will also be running contests and giveaways throughout the summer for best catch and release shot, biggest fish, most interesting fish and coolest fish story.  We have hats and other apparel that will be coming out all summer and will be for sale.

Our philosophy is based on the idea of Take A Kid Fishing.  We like to bring our friends and extended Why Knot Fishing community fishing and put them on their first fish.  We especially recognize the importance of bringing kids fishing and getting them introduced with the sport.  We will be running kids fishing events during the summer as well and partnering with the Fishing Academy in Boston to get kids on the water."

Why Knot Fishing had a launch party last week in Salem, MA that I attended and was able to meet several of the team members.

They are a diverse group of dedicated anglers, fly and gear, that truly want to extend a hand and help open up fishing opportunities for seasoned and new anglers.

I had a good time at the launch party and met some great, down to earth, fellow anglers. Check out their Instagram feeds for some great fishing pics.
