Who's up for a Fish-A-Thon?

Have you ever fished for 24 hours straight?  I've spent 12 hours on the water before but never 24 hours straight.  Thanks to Recycled Fish for offering up an opportunity to fish for 24 hours straight by participating in their 24 hour Fish-A-Thon.



The concept behind the Recycled Fish 24 hour Fish-A-Thon is anglers fishing for 24 hours straight to raise awareness and money for problems facing our fisheries all around the country.

From the Recycled Fish Website

Our lakes, streams and seas are in trouble. It is the result of many things, from over-consuming water to over-harvest of fish to pollution to invasive species. Many of the main issues come from problems in our broader environment because “Our Lifestyle Runs Downstream.”

Anglers – people who love to fish – are the first to notice, because we spend time on the water observing our surroundings. Problems in our environment often show up first in our waters – it all runs downstream. We’re doing something about it with the 24 Hour Fish-A-Thon.

We’re standing up as not just users of our natural resources, but as stewards. We’re raising the flag for simple things anybody can do to ensure healthy waters for fish and wildlife – and for each of us.
You can get more information about this event or register your team or even doante to a team in your area by visiting the Recycled Fish website here:  http://www.recycledfish.org/our-programs/fish-a-thon.htm

I won't be able to fish this event due to a previous commitment,  but I will be making a donation for certain.

  1. This is awesome, Mr. PTO! I have been experiencing some devastating effects of a closed kind salmon fishery this summer in Alaska. I've come to the largest mecca of fresh/saltwater fishing in the country, maybe the world...and it's been close due to low low low numbers coming back. This event is awesome and definitely needed.

    You've been MIA for the summer, hope it's been a good one.
