The TRADITIONAL ANGLERS OF PENNSYLVANIA (T.A.P.) is an organizing group concerned with the loss of fishable waters available to the bait fishing public.   Thus far, we are a very small group in need of many more concerned voices in order to be heard in the State.  Bait fishermen are a massive portion of the fishing community, and, joined together, we can make a difference.
