About this event

Event description

Its our mission to use sport fishing clinics as a vehicle to mentor children and create real moments of truth between our angler mentors

Hooked on Fishing Not On Violence (HOFNOV) program was founded in 2011. In the past five years the program has provided nearly 1,000 children and teens with the opportunity to participate in our fishing derbies and camping trips that are held several times during the spring and summer fishing seasons. This program is uniquely designed to expose inner city at-promised [1]children to the art and sport of fishing. HOFNOV is a nice fit for Sacramento because of the River City’s proximity to rivers, lakes and several streams, and creeks. We have found that fishing breaks down a multitude of barriers while reduction and behavioral re-direction. Not only is this activity enjoyable to the children, it is a physical activity that increases health and fitness. This is important because one of the most astounding risk factors for at promised youths is the extraordinarily high rates of childhood obesity and adult onset/Type II Diabetes
