We will have teens from some local high school clubs presenting at each of these events. We will also be covering local fishing clubs and organizations as well as places to fish and state rules. For the high school camps there will also be a section covering career and school opportunities as they apply to fishing.
The week will end with a bankside fishing trip and small tournament to let them test the baits they built as well as to apply some of the techniques they have learned. Lunch and awards will be provided in the store to end their day on Friday.
