A competitive fishing club will return to Fresno State after taking a four-year hiatus, according to Coach Dan Scott.
Fresno State Fishing was approved by the student government and will meet for the first time next week.
“We’re going to have all aspects of fishing,” said Scott. “Any Fresno State student, whether they have fishing experience or not is welcome to join the club.”
Students will have a chance to learn to become better fishermen, or, in the case of already avid anglers, have a chance to test their skills competitively.
“Any students that are ever interested in becoming professional bass fisherman, this is the way to get into it,” Scott said. “Tons of the pros that are in the majors came from the college circuit.”
The team will compete in the Fishing League Worldwide’s college circuit, which brings students to waters all across the Western states.
