Bill recognizes that the outdoor recreation industry is a significant economic driver

Alexandria, VA – December 9, 2016 – In a significant step forward for the outdoor recreation industry and the sportfishing community, yesterday, President Obama signed into law the Outdoor Recreation Jobs and Economic Impact Act of 2016. The bill, known as the Outdoor REC Act, passed the House of Representatives and the Senate in November.

This new piece of legislation requires the Department of Commerce, in collaboration with the Department of the Interior and the Department of Agriculture, to assess and analyze the contributions of the outdoor recreation industry, including recreational fishing, to the United States economy. The legislation will help to ensure that sportfishing industry jobs and recreational fishing’s economic impact are accounted for as part of the gross domestic product (GDP).

“At a time when jobs and economic opportunity are high on everyone’s list, the Outdoor REC bill’s passage gives the outdoor recreation industry its own metric by which to quantify its impact on the nation’s economic activity,” said American Sportfishing Association (ASA) President and CEO Mike Nussman. “We have advocated for years that recreational fishing and boating were significant economic drivers. It’s gratifying that the House and the Senate, in a bi-partisan effort, passed this bill which the President has now signed it into law.”

Nussman continued, “It’s important to note that in many rural areas, where jobs are at a premium, it’s fishing, boating and other outdoor activities that provide steady employment for many people.”

The passage of the Outdoor REC Act was needed to make sure that the outdoor economy—and it’s estimated six million jobs and $646 billion in economic activity—receives official government recognition for years to come.

Evan Isbell’s legacy for sharing his love of fishing with others is helping bring smiles to the faces of children participating in Camp Courage, a Helen Keller Experience.

Isbell, 16, a member of the Muscle Shoals Trojan Bass Fishing Team, died in an automobile accident June 23. He was well known for helping special needs children and adults learn to fish through the Timmy Horton Fishing For Kids program and Camp Courage, a Helen Keller Experience.

Isbell, of Tuscumbia looked forward to Fishing for Kids and Camp Courage with as much enthusiasm as he did any of the many bass tournaments he competed in on the Alabama Student Angler Bass Fishing Association on other tours.

“Evan was such a nice young man. He would always come up to me after Camp Courage or Fishing for Kids and thank me for letting him help,” said Susann Hamlin, president and CEO of Colbert County Tourism and Convention Bureau. “He always had a smile on his face when he was helping the children learn how to fish.”

To honor Isbell, Camp Courage, a Helen Keller Experience organizers created the Evan Isbell Angler Award to honor the camper deemed the top angler. Twelve children from throughout Alabama attended this year’s session of Camp Courage Sept. 24-27.

The first recipient the Evan Isbell Angler Award was Zachary Glasgow of Albertville. Glasgow caught a 4 ½ -pound largemouth bass at the Camp Courage fishing day on Pickwick Lake to clinch the prize.

It was the first bass and largest fish that Glasgow, 9, has caught.

“It was huge. It pulled really hard when I was reeling it in. Everybody on the boat was telling me that it was a good one,” Glasgow said. “I loved catching that great big fish.”

Chase Murphy, a close friend of Isbell, presented the special award to Glasgow. Several members of the Muscle Shoals Trojan Bass Fishing Team attended the awards ceremony.

“Evan was always trying to help people. He loved getting to help with Camp Courage and help make the children happy,” Murphy said. “With this award, Evan is still making the Camp Courage kids happy. It is a great way to honor Evan and his parents, Ashley and Connie.”

In addition to fishing, the campers made pottery and candles, explored a farm and nature preserve and learned how to use their abilities to make a difference in the world, just as Helen Keller did.

Camp Courage was sponsored by the Helen Keller Birthplace Foundation,  Optometry Cares  - The American Optometric Association Foundation, Valley Credit Union, University of North Alabama,  Colbert County Tourism and Convention Bureau, Colbert County Commission, Colbert County Community Development Fund, Siemens Industries, Helen Keller Hospital, Muscle Shoals Fishing Team, Tim Horton Fishing,  Alabama Mountain Lakes Tourist Association and Alabama Tourism Department, Wind Creek Hospitality, Cypress Cove Farm and George’s 217.

By John N. Felsher - CHEROKEE, Ala. - More than 175 Alabama youths competed for a share of $20,000 in scholarship money during the inaugural Tim Horton High School Bass Fishing Challenge, held May 18, 2013, on Pickwick Lake.

"We had a phenomenal tournament," said Tim Horton, a professional bass angler from Muscle Shoals, Ala. "We had students from all over the state come here to fish. Some traveled more than 200 miles. That says a lot about their passion for fishing in this state."

The students, representing 30 schools from across Alabama, ran out of Rose Trail Park near Cherokee to fish the 47,500-acre impoundment. Named the 20th best bass lake by Bassmaster magazine, Pickwick Lake runs 53 miles along the Tennessee River between Florence, Ala., and Counce, Tenn.
