Expo: Fishing FUNdamentals, 2

Passport to Texas from Texas Parks and Wildlife and the Sport Fish Restoration Program

Fishing is a very family oriented activity.

That’s why it will be featured prominently at this year’s Texas Parks and Wildlife Expo, October 4 and 5. Ron Smith with Inland fisheries is coordinating the new Fishing FUNdamentals area at this year’s festival. He says fishing is a multi-faceted activity.

It promotes conservation, stewardship, time with the family, time with good friends, time outdoors. All of the things that Parks and Wildlife represents, fishing has a big part in.

It used to be folks interested in fishing had to go to several locations around Expo grounds to get their questions answered—but not this year!

This time we’re going to try to bring everything into one place. So that someone at Expo—if they have any kind of question whatsoever about fishing—or are interested in any kind of fishing activity, or going anywhere in Texas to go fishing, we can answer those questions in one spot.

Expo gives visitors of all ages the opportunity to actually catch a fish, and if it is your first fish, we’ll make a big deal about it. In addition, the husband and wife professional angling team of Hector and Diane de la Garza will be on hand to demonstrate techniques and answer your questions.

That’s our show… with support from the Sport Fish and Wildlife Restoration Program… providing funding for the operations and management of the Texas Freshwater Fisheries Center.
