3% Back to Conservation

Florida Fishing Products is committed to the Three C’s: Customer Service, Community, and Conservation. As a company founded by passionate anglers, promoting conservation and the health of the estuaries we love to fish is in our DNA. In 2018, FFP is making an effort to not only give back by way of their community clean ups, but also by making every purchase have a positive impact.

“It’s no secret that Florida is having some major water management issues. Sewage spills are now a regular occurrence after any substantial rainfall, agriculture and local run off are spurring algae blooms across Florida’s bays and lagoon systems, and seagrass and oysters are dying off at alarming rates. The public doesn’t seem to be very aware of these issues, but anglers who have been on the water even over the past 5 years have seen the changes. We believe that educating others on the problems our estuaries face is the only hope of preserving and restoring our estuaries for future generations to enjoy, and that is why we've teamed up with multiple conservation organizations centered around educating the public on these issues.” – Ty Nelson, Co-Founder of FFP.

There are hundreds of conservation organizations across the United States, but FFP has partnered with a select few that share FFP’s values for protecting, preserving, and sometimes also restoring the areas that we love to fish. Captains for Clean Water, Bonefish & Tarpon Trust, Calusa Waterkeeper, and Coastal Conservation Association are certainly not the only good conservation organizations out there, but they are the four that FFP has partnered up with in an effort to make a difference that Florida’s waterways so desperately need.

“We originally wanted to give 5% of all online sales to our conservation partners, but we felt that we could offer so much more as we transition into retail shops in 2018. After some talking, as a company we decided we would give 3% of ALL sales back to conservation. After all, there won’t be a “Florida Fishing Products” if there are no longer any healthy estuaries left to fish."

Fish Better Campaign

Ask anyone what it means to “Fish Better”, and they’ll simply tell you it means to catch more fish. But that is not the case for this Florida-based company. “Fish Better” is about creating a culture of responsible, conservation-minded anglers that are interested not only in catching fish, but protecting them and the habitats they frequent for future generations to enjoy. Florida Fishing Products is a small company started by passionate anglers to help develop better fishing products, educate the public about conservation, and raise awareness for issues affecting fisheries all over Florida.

 “We’re anglers. Plain and simple,” stated FFP Co-Founder, Ty Nelson. “We were blessed to be raised on the water, and feel convicted to fight to ensure the future of our sport for our children and grandchildren to enjoy. We’ve seen first-hand the impact of the increasing number of boats and anglers on the water as well as the impact from the development of coastal communities. We believe there is one solution to the many problems our fisheries face: create a culture of responsible, conservation-minded anglers.”

Florida Fishing Products has partnered with numerous 501 (c)(3) nonprofit organizations, such as Captains for Clean Water, Calusa Waterkeeper, and CCA Florida, in an effort to help continue the push to educate the public of the importance of conserving Florida’s estuaries. For every online sale that is made through their website: www.floridafishingproducts.com, FFP donates 3% back to a conservation organization of the consumer’s choice. In addition, FFP provides valuable content to educate anglers on how to be more conservation-minded on and off the water. Finally, FFP has begun to partner with fishing clubs around the state to set up community clean-ups to help keep plastic and other harmful waste from entering our bays and rivers.

While helping ensure the future of Florida’s fisheries is the end goal, Florida Fishing Products vehicle is their commitment to providing excellent fishing products to anglers. Their Osprey Spinning Reel is known for its light-weight yet durable body, an extremely powerful drag system, and its sleek, blacked out anodized exterior. A match made in heaven for their new Distance Premium Braided Line, which is known for its ability to cast further, feel the bite better, and avoid wind knots. In 2018, FFP will also be launching a new pair of fishing pliers that will likely be the last that an angler will ever need.

We were fortunate to have been raised on the water, and have a passion to help protect and preserve that gift for our future children and grandchildren.
