MARK YOUR CALENDARS for this event for a very nice cause. The Ward Melville High School Fishing Club is hosting their Second Annual fund raiser for the kids and their fishing related activities. 2013 was the first one and it was VERY well attended and this year’s is lining up to be even bigger.

There is a LONG list of Captain’s, Vendors and Tackle shop owners all doing presentations at the fund raiser and I count myself among the fortunate to be able to offer a presentation during the event. I will be discussing various castnets, what factors into your decision on which net to choose and how to throw your new net.

Check the list below for details on speakers doing presentations. Should be a great day and I hope to see a bunch of you folks there.

Date: Saturday March 1st, 2014
Location: Ward Melville High School East Setauket NY 11733
