Here I am again - asking for help from interested fishing clubs or fishermen, with the Madison County Cub Scout Fishing Rodeo. It will be held at Brahan Springs park on Drake Avenue in Huntsville, on Saturday, Sept. 21. We expect about 200 boys (age 6 - 11) and their parents and scout leaders. It will start up about 7:30am with registration, and should be completed by about 11:00. The specific kind of help we could use is:
1) A hands on "Learn to Cast" booth (Casting For Kids already told us they can't make it), using simple Zebco-type reels and maybe hula hoops as targets - set up on land. We can probably come up with the needed equipment.
2) Door prizes - we are hoping to find sponsors willing to donate some fishing gear items that we can use as door prizes. These don't have to be fancy or expensive.
3) A fishing boat with fishing equipment for kids to look at. Some of these kids have never had a look at a real fishing boat. We could have it set up on a trailer, or anchor just offshore (out of reach of little boys!).
4) Roaming "helpers" for boys that need help. Ideally, every boy will have an adult partner, but it doesn't always work out this way. Boys will need help learning to cast, baiting hooks (Live bait only), getting their line out of the tree, and so on....
5) Displays of fishing related stuff - like mounted fish, lure collections, whatever....
6) Your ideas???????

Please email me at if you would be interested in helping out the Cub Scouts of Madison County, or if you have suggestions.

Thanks ever so much :-)
