Network seeks nation’s top fishing town

WFN: World Fishing Network, North America's only 24-hour fishing lifestyle network, is looking for the Ultimate Fishing Town USA.

Beginning March 1, WFN is accepting nominations from anglers who believe they fish in WFN's Ultimate Fishing Town USA. In addition to the national recognition and a $25,000 donation for fishing-related causes, the town will receive 10 WaveSpin Reels and a tourism boost from the WFN show.

People can nominate their town from March 1 to April 8 on the network's website. Nominations can include photos, videos and essays about why their town should be WFN's Ultimate Fishing Town USA.

The first round of voting is open from April 12 to May 3, and 20 finalists - the top two entries in each of seven regions, plus six "wild cards" - advance to the final round of voting in May.

The results will be announced in June at a ceremony in the winning community.
