The World Fishing Network is asking anglers in the United States and Canada to nominate their favorite place to fish as WFN's Ultimate Fishing Town 2012.
The network is accepting nominations at its website from anglers across the United States and Canada who believe their town is WFN's Ultimate Fishing Town. The winning town in each country will receive a $25,000 community donation for fishing-related cause(s), the title of WFN's Ultimate Fishing Town 2012 and a tourism boost as WFN produces a feature about the town and airs it on the network.
“No matter if they love to fish in a small rural community or a popular tourist destination, we encourage everyone to nominate their town,” WFN president and CEO Mark Rubinstein said in a statement. “We look forward to sharing their stories and letting the people choose WFN's Ultimate Fishing Towns for 2012 in the U.S. and Canada.”
Last year, Chapleau, Ontario, and Roscoe, N.Y., were selected as WFN's Ultimate Fishing Towns in Canada and the United States, respectively. More than 500 towns were nominated, and nearly 1 million votes were cast.
People can nominate their town through April 30. The public voting runs from May 1-31 and the results will be announced at a local ceremony in June.
