"Come, follow me," Jesus said, "and I will make you fishers of men."

Fellowship of Christian Anglers Society


As Jesus was walking beside the Sea of Galilee, he saw two brothers, Simon called Peter and his brother Andrew. They were casting a net into the lake, for they were fishermen.  "Come, follow me," Jesus said, "and I will make you fishers of men."

                        Matt 4:18-19

Statement of Faith....

      About 30 years ago, a group of professional fisherman founded an organization to promote Christ through the sport of fishing. Thus, the Fellowship of Christian Anglers Society was established. The vision of these pioneers was to use fishing as a tool to reach the unchurched and strengthen the bond between Christians.  

     Our chapter is located in Western Kentucky with Lake Barkley and Kentucky Lake within the borders of Trigg County. FOCAS of Cadiz began in February of 2003 with 5 members.  We are a group of people that promote fishing through Christ. In addition, we offer family events, a kids derby, and a few friendly competitions.
