Soon, the Striped Bass are going to be at the Fairmount Dam for their Fall run, not to mention that lots of different Species of fish will be foraging for lots of food for a long and painful winter to come.
Philly Fun Fishing Fest 2011 (Video -- I was in it with my Mini-pen fishing rods. Heh)
Extra gear will be available on site (you may bring your own gear if you wish), and nightcrawlers will be given for FREE (Oh Yeah!).
The competition starts at 7 a.m. and ends at 11. I advise everyone to be on time; otherwise, lateness will give you a huge disadvantage in certain prize categories (i.e. biggest fish, most amount of fish, Lord knows what...).
In order to participate, all you have to do is to register online on this website. After registering, do not forget to download the "Release Form" here (link below the video), and print it out. You need to bring that piece of paper on the day of the competition in order to participate!
This will also be a GREAT opportunity to socialize with other anglers -- amateurs and experts alike; a good opportunity for a group meeting as well! I've already registered for it, and I'll be on site 30 minutes before the beginning of the event, in case anyone wants to meet there!
Do not forget to share this event with everyone that you love -- the more, the merrier. Come on, guys: a fishing event with free lending gear, bait, and no fishing license required? No one has excuses to not participate or try the sport out, unless time is a problem.
I hope to see everyone on the Banks on September 7th! In case it rains on that date, the "rain date" is on September 21st.
P.s. Here is the link of a post that I wrote on the Philly Fun Fishing Fest 2011 -- I participated with my friend Nadir G.. Good times.
