Fish News: Upcoming Fishing Tournaments
Upcoming Fishing Tournaments
The Don Forman Cobia Tournament has started and will run the entire month of July. Enter anytime prior to fishing. It only takes one fish to win. For more information on this and other PSWSFA tournaments visit: http://www.pswsfa.com/tournaments.htm.
The 13th Annual Children's Fishing Clinic will be held on July 19th at the James
River Fishing Pier. Volunteers are needed to instruct/assist the children in the fishing on the pier. We will have volunteers showing up starting at 6 AM to set up equipment and get ready for the children. We will finish the clean-up around 1:30 PM and lunch is provided. Please report to the Volunteer Registration area to sign in and get your T-Shirt before going to the pier. Parking should be in the beach lot as we are not allowed to use the Crab Shack or pier parking during the event. Should anyone need additional information, they can call Rob Cowling, 599-2207 Bus, 344-0659 cell. Thanks for all the support from PSWSFA in years past. We have many veterans that can tell you what it is to volunteer to work with the children. It is a very rewarding day where we can educate and instruct kids on how to fish, the treasures of our marine environment and build a love of fishing that can stay with them for a lifetime. Please volunteer!
