In the first nine months, T.A.P. has grown from an idea to a reality.  We now have many dedicated members.  Recognition has been granted from the PA Fish & Boat Commission and other sportsmen's organizations.  They have recognized T.A.P. for its dedication to live bait fishing and equal stream access for all.  We will continue to promote, protect and preserve all waterways of PA.
