First Cast is TU's nationwide initiative to introduce youth to coldwater conservation through angling. The program is the result of a ground-breaking partnership between TU and the Recreational Boating and Fishing Foundation (RBFF), working on the premise that many of our most dedicated conservationists are also avid anglers. The initiative offers low-cost, high-quality tackle, educational materials and books. Youth will be taught by conservationists and fishermen to get the best of both worlds.
