Recreational Boating & Fishing Foundations' mission is to implement an informed, consensus-based national outreach strategy that will increase participation in recreational angling and boating and thereby increase public awareness and appreciation of the need to protect, conserve and restore this nation's aquatic natural resources.

Take Me Fishing announces three great new patches for Cub Scouts and Boy Scouts to earn while sharing their love of angling. It's fun, it's easy and it's right at your fingertips.

Passport Patch

The Passport Patch program is an introduction to fishing and boating for Cub Scouts. Scouts take part in a fun and exciting six step interactive program that teaches various skills every angler needs to be knowledgeable, safe, and confident while fishing and boating.

The Passport Patch is the coolest new patch around. The Passport to Fishing & Boating is a fun, adventure-education program designed to teach the skills needed to dive into the wonderful world of fishing and boating. It’s fun and easy to do with the help of a pack leader or parent. Once your pack has these basics under their belts, you’ll be ready to get out on the water and start fishing.

  • Step 1:
    Ask your Troop Leader to register for the Passport Program.
