As Ernie said I teach a program on fishing for the Boy Scouts at our camp in Wading River. I was fortunate to have many rods, reels and money donated when I asked last year. Enough so that I have plenty to go around now. While we are always greatful for any donations that we receive, I feel that the Coney Island program could use the equipment more then us right now.
Thanks for thinking of others, especially our youth. Fishing can be the activity that keeps the out of trouble. I know it was for me.
