A lot of NFL players are doing things to make fish fishing easier for them.
Now, the league is looking to do the same thing.
The Associated Press reports that the league’s players’ union and the National Football League Players Association are working together to promote the “fish camp” program that’s been promoted by NFL Players Association president DeMaurice Smith.
The camp will include a full-day fishing school, a classroom and an outdoor area for the coaches to catch, and more than 200 campers to work with, including former college athletes and athletes who’ve been through camp.
Players from all 32 teams will be in town, and they’ll be able to come together and practice together.
That’s not the only change.
Players will be able wear their fish suits for the first time in a season, and it’s being said the NFLPA will provide some training in the fall for new players.
The union and NFLPA have also said they plan to start a partnership to get the best out of the current rules, like using catch nets to catch fish.
That sounds like it might be the beginning of a new era of catching fish in a sport that’s all about the catches, but the rules are being tweaked a bit to make the game more fun.
