Wanted Kids Fishing Club - THANK YOU


Recommended Posts

Hi LOU Community,

 

I am working with a close friend at Gates Chili Middle School in developing a fishing club. Currently there are 14 members. Most of the young anglers are interested mostly in bass and perch. If any of you have unwanted tackle that you would like to donate to the group, we would be forever grateful. I can also work a deal out with anyone if I can trade some of my trolling gear for gear for the kids. Thanks in advance for anyone considering donating.

 

-Chris

Hi Chris

Would any of the kids be interested in fly fishing or into trib fishing yet?

 

 

I do not think most of them have ever been trib or fly fishing but I am sure they would try it!

I have some misc stuff, plastics, line, etc. I also have a few spinning reels that I just don't use anymore. They are lower end so to speak but work fine.

Thanks for all the responses. My hope is to put together a rod and reel along with a small tackle box for each kid with anything from plastics to lures that will catch anything that you might find in a pond or off the piers.

 

Anything more then that I will be pooling together and create a fishing derby for all of them with the top couple anglers getting a goody bag of equipment.

 

my address is 18 Highland Drive Penfield NY 14526

 

Appreciate it again!

 

Thanks,

Chris McConnell
