LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (June 15, 2010)—Bullet Weights Inc. of Alda, Nebraska is working with the Future Fisherman Foundation (F3) to be sure educators using F3 programs such as Hooked On Fishing Not On Drugs and Physh Ed have access to reasonably priced tackle for youngsters learning how to fish.
“Qualified educators who sign up for the Foundation’s Tackle for Educators program can purchase several Bullet Weights products at substantial discounts,” said Keith Sutton, F3’s executive director. “For teachers running programs that often include dozens of children, having this type of support from generous companies such as Bullet Weights is invaluable. These programs run year-round, so replenishing supplies such as sinkers is a constant necessity.”
“Through its programs, the Foundation ensures that thousands of today’s children have an opportunity to fish and learn about conservation, biology and other important facets of fishing,” said Bullet Weights president Joe Crumrine. “We want to support those efforts, and offering quality products to teachers through the Tackle for Educators program is one way we can help.”
In 1995, Bullet Weights demonstrated its innovation as a company by adding Ultra Steel® and Ultra Tin™ products to its line of fishing weights. Some of these sinkers, which have unique performance advantages, are among those available to educators, including 10-packs of Bullet Weight’s Premium Lead Free Tin Split Shot, a 124-piece Bullet Weight Lead Free Tin Split Shot Assortment and 12-packs of 1/8-ounce Ultra Steel Bullet Weights.

Established in 1986, the Future Fisherman Foundation unites the sportfishing industry and a nationwide network of state outdoor educators, national conservation groups and youth organizations dedicated to introducing America’s youth to angling and the outdoors. These efforts help people of all ages have safe and enjoyable fishing experiences that foster conservation ethics.
