Use some caution, I have only taken a short look at their materials.
If I look hard enough I probably can find some issues.
They are a bit old time Baptist and that makes curious reading in our day.

“the Faith Once Delivered…” (Jude 1:3)
The Holy Scriptures
WE BELIEVE the Bible, the Scriptures of the Old Testament and the New Testament, preserved for us in the Masoretic text (Old Testament) Textus Receptus (New Testament) and in the King James Bible, is verbally and plenarily inspired of God. It is the inspired, inerrant, infallible, and altogether authentic, accurate and authoritative Word of God, therefore the supreme and final authority in all things (II Tim. 3:16-17; II Peter 1:21; Rev. 22:18-19).
That’s a rare clear statement favoring the KJB.
There is an interesting article on Fish and fishing.
Some good verses for Flyfishing…
Another was by hook and line, as where Isaiah says, “The fishers also shall mourn, and all they that cast angle into the brooks shall lament” (19:8). Job says, “Canst thou draw out leviathan with an hook?” (41:1). And Habakkuk says, “They take up all of them with the angle” (1:15).
HERE IS A QUOTE
No use trying to angle for fish or angle for souls unless you have the right kind of bait. There is plenty of it in the promises, the parables, the miracles, the crucifixion, the Heaven of the grand old Gospel.
Yes, not only must you dig for bait, but you must also use only fresh bait. You cannot do anything down at the pond with old angle- worms. There are all the good books to help you dig. But make up your mind as to whether you will take the hint of Habakkuk and Isaiah and Job and use hook and line or take the hint of Matthew and Luke and Christ and fish with a net.
I think many lose their time by wanting to fish with a net, and they never get a place to swing the net. In other words, they want to do gospel work on a big scale, or they will not do it at all.
I see feebleminded Christian men going around with a Bagster’s Bible under their arms, hoping to do the work of an evangelist and use the net, while they might be better content with hook and line and take one soul at a time. They are failures as evangelists. They would be mighty successes as private Christians.
If you catch only one soul for God, that will be enough to fill your eternity with celebration. All hail the fishermen with hook and line!
