Water Sentinels Partnership Helps Military Families Go Fishin'

Thanks to a new Sierra Club partnership, military families all over the country are enjoying rods and reels donated by Zebco, the Sierra Club Water Sentinels, the National Military Fish and Wildlife Association, and the Recreational Boating and Fishing Foundation's Take Me Fishing Campaign.

This fall, more than 170 young anglers participated in the Kids Fishing Derby at Lake O'Neill on the Camp Pendleton Marine Corps Base Camp in Southern California.

Ten-year old Nathan Wardinsky landed the largest bass of the event with a two-pound, three-ounce whopper. Trinity Flemming, age seven, claimed "Most Fish Caught" honors with ten, while Brandon Bolanos, also seven years old, brought in a nine-ounce channel catfish to win that category.

"Congratulations to all of the anglers who, without boats and three days of practice like the Bassmaster Elite tournaments, managed to catch and release 66 fish during the derby," says Water Sentinels Deputy Director Tim Guilfoile. "A great time was had by all 250 military family members and friends."
