Fishing in New Hampshire is Big…REALLY Big
CONCORD, N.H. -- How big is fishing in New Hampshire? REALLY big, according to a new postcard campaign by the N.H. Fish and Game Department. A parody postcard making the rounds features old-time fishermen in a rowboat, reeling in a much bigger fish than they bargained for.
“The faux-vintage postcard image is reminiscent of those used to celebrate the fishing experience decades ago,” said Jon Charpentier, marketing and promotions supervisor for Fish and Game. “We wanted to give anglers a laugh and a burst of nostalgia, start a conversation and get them excited about getting out on the water.”
See the postcard at www.fishnh.com/Fishing/fishing.htm. And save it to email to your friends to remind them how much fun you're having goin' fishing.
One goal of the postcard campaign is to get anglers to visit Fish and Game’s website for the information they need, including seasons and bag limits, regulations, license prices, fishing reports, stocking details and depth maps. The cards will be mailed to lapsed anglers in New Hampshire as part of Fish and Game's spring fishing ad campaign.

The New Hampshire Fish and Game Department works in partnership with the Recreational Boating and Fishing Foundation to increase participation in recreational angling and boating, thereby increasing public awareness and appreciation of the need for protecting, conserving and restoring our nation's aquatic natural resources.
