RBFF fishing exhibit will tour California

The Recreational Boating & Fishing Foundation’s Take Me Fishing Center will be featured March 4-8 at Fred Hall's Fishing Tackle & Boat Shows in Long Beach, Calif., and March 25-29 in San Diego.

The exhibit will feature two main stations focused on TakeMeFishing.org and Anglers' Legacy. Each day, two individuals who take the Anglers' Legacy Pledge on-site will be chosen to receive Voltaeus rod-and-reel combos, courtesy of Shimano.

The exhibits will also feature the Fishing Hole Target Casting Mat, where anglers of all ages can test their casting skills for special giveaways.

"Boaters and anglers of all ages and experience levels will learn how they can plan a trip, buy a fishing license, design their dream boat, or check out the latest equipment on TakeMeFishing.org," said RBFF president and CEO Frank Peterson, in a statement.

"Avid anglers will also learn how they can help conserve our nation's aquatic resources by taking the Anglers' Legacy Pledge and sharing the sport with a newcomer,” he added.
