My first tackle show!
« on: September 28, 2021, 05:29:56 PM »
Hi all, Its a bit last minute, but last weekend I was invited to the 1st annual Keeping Kids Fishing event at Camp Westwood, Coventry RI Saturday, October 2nd. I will have a table with a lot of the fishing lures I make, and probably will be making some right there. There was some talk about me actually bringing my lathe and doing some live turning too. I will also have a donation box at my table, and the money that is earned will go towards parts for lures that I will donate to the Keeping Kids Fishing program. Anyways if any of you guys wanted to take a ride, or are in the area, I would love for you to come by. And maybe even buy something  ;D ;D ;D  (giggle)

I will add an attachment for the flyer. Its put on by a local guy named John Graichen, who donates Rods, Reels and gear to kids and does teach a kid to fish events on the weekend throughout the spring summer and fall. Its a non Profit organization Primarily in the Coventry area. Awesome stuff he is doing.
I make baits, so when I fish, I am product testing! And when I am not using baits I make, I am researching.

Sounds like a great idea and a great event!

Not sure if I'll make it there, but you just never know!  (giggle)

@metz12 Can I bring my canoe and fish, or is it shore fishing only? Would be happy to donate if I could get on the water and catch some Smallies.

I can find out for you @toadhunter. It will kill me not to be able to fish in there while I am manning the table. Luckily my parents are going to come and help me out so MAYBE I can sneak away at some point to make a few casts  ;D

I have a couple of friends that have Canoes, or kayaks on that body of water. Just never linked up.

@Curt - RI If you can make it that would be awesome. Not sure how many guys like myself will be there selling baits, but who knows.

@toadhunter as far as I can see you wouldn't be able to bring the canoe. The derby is all from shore. But, since its free to the public, I really dont see why you couldnt park and bring the canoe in. Maybe an Ask for forgiveness instead of asking for permission sort of situation?  ;D ;D

It would still be great if you could come out to check it out.
