Anglers set for 24-hour fishing marathon

More than 60 anglers from eight states and Canada will attempt the fishing version of running a marathon this weekend in the Recycled Fish 24 Hour Fish-A-Thon presented by BoatU.S. Angler.

Anglers will fish for 24 hours straight with the goal of raising awareness of the environmental problems facing our waters and raising money to help solve those problems.

The first lines will be cast at 6 p.m. Friday, and the last fish must be landed by 5:59 p.m. Saturday.

"Our lakes and streams are great places to fish, but they are faced with problems like invasive species, overharvest and pollution," says Teeg Stouffer, executive director of Recycled Fish, a non-profit group. "Our participating angler-ambassadors are raising awareness by doing something challenging. They want everyone to know that the solutions to the problems facing our waters involve everyday choices by all of us."

For more on the 24 Hour Fish-A-Thon or to learn more about stewardship of our waters, visit www.RecycledFish.org and take the Sportsman's Stewardship Pledge.

The proceeds are donated to Recycled Fish and the non-profit BoatU.S. Foundation for Boating Safety and Clean Water to support responsible fishing practices and waterway stewardship programs.
