Youth Angler Giveaway

A Huge Thank You to the Sponsor for the Youth Angler Giveaway


For the second time, the Ward Melville HS Fishing club is extremely proud to announce that there will be a free tackle giveaway for attending youth (5 year old to 20 year old) anglers that participate in the various seminars and or workshops that we will be hosting.

Quantities will be limited and we are very excited to give back to other, non club member youth anglers that will be taking advantage of a great day of learning about something we have a true love for: Fishing

There will be a WMHS Fishing Club member stationed at each of the seminars as well as the following.  You should see them for your stamp.

Please make sure to pick up a copy of this giveaway that will be stationed at both entrances.
