The 2020-2021 Scholastic Anglers Season will begin Thursday, September 17, 2020.  All Scholastic Anglers Workshops will be held on the third Thursday of each month throughout the school year at the Why Not An American Ark Facility, 3224 Medlin Road, Monroe, NC 28112. Due to covid 19 and because of weather conditions there are a few modifications we may have to make this season. Please adapt with us and thank you for your patience. Any late pertinent news such as bad weather, delays, changes, or cancellations will always be displayed here on this site. Anglers may join our membership club, our membership is only ten dollars for the year. Just click the Join button on the home page. The Scholastic Anglers Championship and Classic are set for Saturday, June 5, 2021.

The benefits of the Scholastic Anglers Program is far reaching, not only in the sport of fishing, but the academic realm as well:  Sciences, math, social studies, reading, writing, and water/boating/sun safety. Scholastic Anglers places a tremendous focus on the Content Areas of Character Education. Here, long lasting traditions are created, and the opportunity to meet new friends, and enjoy great competition. There are lots of fantastic prizes and recognitions to earn here. We are here for our anglers.
Up for grabs this season is the Scholastic Anglers School Of The Year, the Scholastic Angler Of The Year, the Scholastic Anglers Elite Eight, and the Scholastic Anglers Classic. This season we are frequently having raffle drawings at our events for prizes.

 The Challenge and Scholastic Anglers Season runs throughout the entire academic year. Student-anglers compete both as an individual and as a school team.  Points are earned for the Scholastic Anglers Challenge through catching, photographing, releasing, and entering fish, meeting attendance, and completing assignments on our site when available. Assignments can be found under the Fisher Tools tab on this website. Every accomplishment counts and every point is valuable.
