What is PAR?
Have you ever wondered what it takes to be a successful professional angler? Anyone can have a jersey made and put some logos on it, but that doesn’t make them a professional any more than putting on a Yankees uniform makes you a Major League Baseball player.
To be a real professional angler, you need skills. Not just skills on the water — lots of anglers have those — but skills in the boardroom, skills at trade shows, skills with the media and skills with the general public. You have to be marketable, and you have to be bankable. If you’re not, you’re just another fisherman with a dream.
Professional Angler Resources (PAR) begins where your fishing skills leave off. If you can really catch ’em, you’re only part of the way there — and the easy part at that. PAR is a partnership of professional anglers and media experts dedicated to helping you make your dreams come true.
We’re going to assume that you can fish. Where we’re going to help is off the water. We’re going to teach you how to find and develop sponsors, how to value yourself, how to present yourself, how to work with media and how to take your dream to the next level — the level where it can actually come true.
It won’t necessarily be easy, and it won’t happen overnight (it took years to develop your fishing skills, right?), but we’ll show you the way and help you get there much faster than you ever could get there on your own.
PAR is dedicated to helping you build the career you always wanted in the fishing industry. If you’re ready to take that next step, then join Shaw Grigsby, Bernie Schultz and Kevin VanDam — by joining PAR today.
