Each participant will go home with their own rod, reel and tackle box complete with all the tackle they need during the camp.
The week winds up with tournaments and Fish Fry and boating excursions for the campers and their families.
Tuition for the camp is $225 or $215 if paid by cash or check. Acceptance is on a first come- first served basis and class size is limited.
