USA SURF FISHING TEAM
SEEKS TALENTED ANGLERS FOR INTERNATIONAL COMPETITIONS

USAngling and the official USA Surf Fishing Team are excited to announce a search for passionate and skilled saltwater anglers to join our National team.

The USA Surf Fishing Team seeks dedicated team members who are residents of the United States and possess extensive experience in shore-based saltwater fishing, including prior participation in competitions or tournaments.

Ideal candidate athletes should have excellent surf fishing skills covering a range of environments, styles and skill sets, along with great casting and technical rigging skills for all levels of tackle – ideally from heavy land-based lure fishing to lighter European–style bait fishing.

Starting with the prestigious Pan American Surf Fishing Tournament in October 2024, and the World Shore Fishing Championships in 2025 and beyond, the USA Surf Fishing Team will feature the best shore-based saltwater anglers in America with recruitment now open for Men’s, Women’s and Youth teams.

The team also has a focus on the development of saltwater fishing in local, national and international communities with events and partnerships to further the sport’s impact alongside our partners and sponsors.

Team President Ben Hervey-Murray leads a talented group of athletes – including Vice-President Ryan Lambert – with anglers from East and West Coast surf fishing communities representing the USA with pride and passion.

The USA Surf Fishing Team is interested in hearing from any surf anglers of any age or gender who’d like to be considered for selection for forthcoming events – and any companies, sponsors or media interested in partnering with the team. Contact via usasurffishingteam@gmail.com
