Judging from the sheer volume of smiles, it’s safe to say we accomplished this goal. Over 600 youth participated in the casting activities over the 10 days of the show (January 27 - February 5). Five staff members and one high school volunteer provided casting lessons, supervision, and distributed prizes to all participants--both young and old. We hope that these future angling enthusiasts will take their new-found skills to a local river or lake. With future natural resource recreationalists comes future advocates!
