Our Commitment To Saltwater Anglers & Boaters
For those who love fishing or boating, it is commonly acknowledged, or at least privately thought, that there is something about saltwater that makes it bigger and more mysterious than freshwater. Salt Action was established to promote the unique culture that surrounds saltwater.
Our mission is to provide curated resources for anglers and boating enthusiasts to learn, discuss, and find necessary gear for their next water experience.
