The Hook Kids on Fishing Programs at the Old Florida Outdoor Festival on February 13 and 14 were a huge success as 25 volunteers conducted two Hook Kids on Fishing Programs, one on Saturday and one on Sunday, with a total of 180 kids and their parents in attendance. Thanks to AFC Orlando volunteers and sponsors each child walked away with a brand new fishing rod, reel and tackle box provided by the Fish Florida Foundation after completing all five learning stations. In conjunction with the HKOF Program, donation checks from the AFC Orlando Chapter were presented to two Central Florida youth fishing programs. Teen Sportsfishing association and the Seminole Teen Anglers received a total of 3000.00 from profits generated by the Central Florida Gumbo Wars Fund Raiser. As a member of the AFC Orlando Chapter, I’m extremely proud of all of our volunteers and and program supporters for once again stepping up to promote responsible angling in Florida. Great fun was had by all, and I’m looking forward to our next event on March 19 th and the Johns Lake Conservation Area in Winter Garden.
