We never had a boat growing up, but parents still did their best to get me out on the water. Banks, beaches, creeks… I learned to find fish in any little puddle. The nostalgia of those warm summer nights camping, crabbing and fishing San Luis Pass bridges and Texas City Dike is a what I find myself chasing and passing down to the next generation. Being apart of a movement to get more folks outdoors and on the water is imperative to our future and I am so honored to recognized as a partner in this space to get more women on the water. - Cindy
From the classic neck wrap to the creative “wanna-beanie,” here are all of the best ways to wear a neck gaiter.
If you love playing outside in the hot weather, neck gaiters are an essential part of your summer wardrobe. Whether it’s fishing, hiking, biking, or kayaking, they keep you cool during outdoor activities while also protecting your skin from the sun. That said, how to wear them isn’t always straightforward. To help you figure out the right look for your sport and lifestyle, check out our photo gallery of the best ways to wear a neck gaiter.
Publications and Appearances
Connecting with others of like minded interests and initiatives is vital to me. I have been blessed over the years in the fishing and outdoors with a network of friends and inspiring anglers, content creators and stewards of our environment. I met Ashley Nicole Lewis and this group of incredible women through collaborations with The Recreational Fishing and Boating Foundation/Takemefishing.org and Yamaha Outboards. Recently, Ash reached out to us for an impromptu Q&A and catch up via Zoom as the recent times have somewhat hindered our travels and activities as a group.
Check out this highlight and look for the full length video this Spring with Break Out with Bad Ash!

Tiffany Haddish, Patti LaBelle, Secretary Deb Haaland, Misty Copeland, Gayle King, and dozens more remind us that words matter.

Growing up, we lived near Houston, and I remember being in the car with my parents on the way to Pasadena when another vehicle tried to pull us over. This was when I was really young. And you know, there's the KKK out here, so I remember my dad was like, ‘Don't stop, don't stop.’ Every time I go to Pasadena, that's the first thing I think about.
Then when I was in high school, one of my friends got a rebel flag tattoo. Even now, I'll still see a rebel flag being flown in my neighborhood. I don't know how some people feel about it but to me, it's definitely a sign of racism. It doesn't belong here.” — Cindy Nguyen, Fishing athlete
