AFTA would like to thank everyone who has donated so far, it is amazing to see how much the industry and public has got behind this appeal and with people still donating we have increased our target even higher to $120k through gofundme and if we add on the $20,000 AFTA has put into account as of today we are over $120,000!

We are looking for donations small or large, whatever you can do helps this fantastic cause.

Good work recreational fishing industry!
