AWF Youth Fishing Rodeo set for August

MILLBROOK, AL - The Alabama Wildlife Federation (AWF) is hosting its 8th annual Youth Fishing Rodeo from 7:00 a.m. to 11:00 a.m. on August 7, 2010 at Lanark in Millbrook. The rodeo is open to anyone age 15 and under.  Admission is free, however, participants must pre-register as space is limited and all youth must be accompanied by an adult.

Each young angler will receive a t-shirt and will be eligible for door prizes. Snacks and drinks will also be available. In addition, each child may take home five catfish, but may catch and release all they would like. Participants are encouraged to bring their own fishing equipment and bait, though a very limited number of loaner rods and reels will be available on site.

With only a limited number of spots open, it's important to call AWF at 334-285-4550 today and register!
