The ASA is encouraging both members and non-members to attend its 2016 Sportfishing Summit in New Orleans.

The American Sportfishing Association (ASA) is holding its popular Summit from October 4 to 7 in New Orleans.

Staged at the Ritz-Carlton, the event is the only venue where people representing the entire recreational fishing community come together to discuss a wide range of issues and events that impact the future of the industry.

All ASA members and non-members are encouraged to attend so that they can gain a better understanding of how the organisation works on their behalf and that of the industry. The networking breakfasts, lunches and Hospitality Suite also offer informal ways to discuss issues that impact on your business.
