Take Me Fishing Center Heads to San Diego Fred Hall Show
RBFF Exhibit Educates Attendees on Boating, Fishing & Conservation

ALEXANDRIA, VA (March 25, 2008) – The Recreational Boating & Fishing Foundation (RBFF) today announced that its Take Me Fishing Center will be featured at the Fred Hall Fishing Tackle & Boat Show, being held March 26 - 30, 2008 at the Del Mar Fairgrounds outside San Diego, California. Designed to educate show attendees on boating, fishing and conservation, the Take Me Fishing Center will have something for everyone.

“The Take Me Fishing Center hosts a wealth of boating and fishing information including the basics on equipment and techniques and local resources for purchasing your fishing license and boat registration,” said RBFF President and CEO Frank Peterson. “The Center also encourages avid anglers to sign up for our Anglers’ Legacy program and learn more about how they can help preserve the resource by sharing the sport with a newcomer.”

Professional angler Al Keller will be on hand to demonstrate and teach casting techniques at the Center’s casting pond. Keller will also collect Pledges for Anglers’ Legacy.

The Fred Hall Show is presented by Fred Hall & Associates and the American Sportfishing Association (ASA). If you’d like to set up a one-on-one meeting or interview at the Fred Hall Show, e-mail RBFF Communications Manager Helena Basche or call her at (609) 226-7577.
