|Anglers for Conservation Orlando Chapter's New Hook Kids on Fishing Trailer
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE June 17, 2015
Anglers for Conservation Orlando Chapter proudly placed their new Hook Kids on Fishing trailer in services. Fully equipped with tents, tables and chairs, the new trailer includes a complete self-contained compliment gear needed to support the six learning stations utilized at their Hook Kids on Fishing events. Funding for the new trailer and equipment was provided by profits earned through the 2014 Central Florida Gumbo Wars fundraising event and by community and industry partners like the Fishing Florida Radio Show, Coastal Angler Magazine Orlando, the Fish On Fire Restaurant, Mud Hole Custom Tackle and many others.

Thus far in 2015, Anglers for Conservation has conducted eighteen free HKOF events in Florida, introducing thousands of kids and their parents to fishing, and provided each child completing the program with a new fishing rod of their own.
The AFC is a non-profit, 501(c)(3) organization working within recreational fishing communities to inspire new generations of marine stewards through angling education, habitat restoration and applied conservation practices. These programs focus on providing extended short and long-term classroom and in-the-field fishing, boating and marine conservation education and training to youth and their parents. Through funding from individual donors and grants from foundations and government, Anglers For Conservation offers its programs to various segments of the general public in the community.
The AFC will be sharing ICAST Booth 3245 courtesy of Florida's Space Coast, so be sure to stop by and see us and register for a Florida Space Coast Vacation Package that includes a fishing adventure with Mosquito Coast Fishing Charters and Captain Tom Van Horn.
