    Chastenation was founded in 2015. Chasten is a 21-year-old angler who proves “it’s more than just fishing.” Her mission is to help kids of all ages, especially girls, become comfortable anglers while teaching positive life skills, thoughtfulness, doing what's right for the right reasons, and choosing to stay active outdoors. It’s not about what you look like or outside appearance, what matters is what’s inside. She is actively working with some local tournaments to include kid divisions as well as girls/ladies divisions, all in hopes this will encourage more kids to fish as well as families to fish as “a family.” Chasten promotes conservation and helping to teach kids and adults fishing seminars.
