The ACU Fishing is getting ready for another season as they have their first meeting September 19th.
The Fishing Club was started by Riley Nipper, a former ACU Baseball player who wanted to create a club for those who shared the passion for fishing as he does.
Nelson Goldsmith, a sophomore business major from Abilene, said, “The goal of the fishing club is for students who enjoy fishing competitively and recreationally together and have a fun time, while still giving back to the community through Big Brothers Big Sisters.”
Fishing is a big thing here in the big country and those that go to Abilene Christian University. The fishing club is a great opportunity for you as someone who loves to go out fishing to become a part of. A special community is formed when people with similar hobbies come together.
It is not too late for you to get involved if still interested. If you do not know how to fish that is not a problem either.
Isaiah Teran, Junior business major from San Antonio, said, ” I was never taught how to fish and now I am 21 years old and cannot catch a fish. The ACU fishing club offers something that I have always wanted to learn to do but never have.”
The ACU Fishing Club wants to provide instruction for those students who do not know how to fish so that they will enjoy fishing in the future.
If you are a competitor and know how to fish then the club might be the right thing for you. Some members of the fishing club are members of the fishing team. The fishing club currently own three boats and attempt to fish as many tournaments in Texas to create recognition of the club.
However, they do not currently have enough money to fish in all the tournaments that they would like to.
If interested or just want to help the ACU Fishing Club out, here is how to get involved. First off, get involved by joining the actual club. But if that does not float your boat you can help them out by purchasing t-shirts from them, or helping raise money so they can have events for students.
