A HUGE thanks out to Addya Outdoors who has agreed to provide hooks to attending young anglers and will be stationed at the FISHING UNITED table. The guys at FISHING UNITED have are bringing leader material and will be teaching any and everyone interested how to tie knots and rigs for your favorite type of saltwater fishing. There will also be some hook literature available which should help and aid you in choosing the various styles of hooks.  This is a great opportunity to grab some free hooks, learn to and make some rigs you can bring home and increase your fishing IQ!  Make sure to stop by and say hello and learn a few things along the way!!

Lou Caruso and AL Goldberg will both be giving presentations on custom rod building at their respective tables.
Nick Meola of ChunkZ Customs will be working with several students throughout the course of the day on building a fluke/porgy rod.
