| June 1, 2012 | 0 Comments

Fishing is a great sport to share with family, friends or even on a solo outing.  On Saturday June 2nd there will be an opportunity to learn more about it at the annual 4-H Fishing Clinic available to 100 Putnam County youth ages 8 to 14.  With 7500 lakes, 50,000 miles of rivers and stream and hundreds of miles of coastline (www.dec.ny.gov), fishing in New York can be a life-long avocation.

This free event will take place, rain or shine from 10 am to 3 pm at the Putnam County Veterans Memorial Park, Gipsy Trail Road, Carmel.  All participants will receive a free rod, reel, tackle kit, 2012 fishing directory and hat.  Check in begins promptly at 10 am and pre-registration is required.

The ‘Learn to Fish Program’ is sponsored by Cornell Cooperative Extension, and the Oasis Sportsmen’s Club with support from the Jack Stewart Jr. Memorial Fund.  Please note:  Participants need not be a member of 4-H, a parent/guardian must remain with the youth during the event, and only first time registrants are eligible.  To register or for more information,  please go to www.cce.cornell.edu/putnam or call 845-278-6738.
