Fishing & Boating News

Keep kids interested in fishing by getting them gear made just for them.  

(Apr 28, 2015 - ) Kid Casters, a new youth fishing brand owned by Lil Anglers, LLC, has teamed up with KeepAmericaFishing® and the American Sportfishing Association in hopes of igniting a passion for fishing within our younger generations. Several products in the Lil Anglers line will bear the KeepAmericaFishing logo, including Kid Casters fishing jerseys, No Tangle rods and reels, and other innovative products aimed to inspire new fishermen and help get them started enjoying the sport.

Lil Anglers will donate a portion of proceeds from the sale of these products to KeepAmericaFishing.

 “Our mission began with a strong desire for creating a more enjoyable fishing experience for kids, as well as their parents or guardians,” says Lil Anglers CEO and co-founder Ralph Duda III.


“Youth participation in fishing is trending lower each year,” comments Liz Ogilvie, KeepAmericaFishing director. “The products Lil Anglers are putting to market are not only colorful and fun, but they also eliminate several of the challenges that face beginner fishermen. Those things combined could keep kids fishing longer, hopefully throughout their lives.  "

The branded products can be purchased on the Kid Casters website at and at retailers like Walmart, Bass Pro Shops, Toys ”R” Us, Dicks Sporting Goods, Kmart, Sportsman’s Warehouse, and Academy Sports + Outdoors.  Kid Casters are truly “Where Fishing Begins!”


KeepAmericaFishing depends on the support of our partners who go above and beyond the call of duty to make your voice heard in the halls of Congress and in state capitols across the country.

When you buy their products and support their programs, you make a direct impact on keeping our waterways open, clean and abundant with fish.
