George Fox Honorary Children’s Fishing Awards Program
The Club will conducts a program to reward children (age 12 and younger) who catch a fish between Jan. 1st and Dec. 31st.
The Children's Fishing Awards Program runs annually January 1st though December 31st. This is a great way to foster interest in our sport and have a great time in the process. You may be helping a generation of future club members! All children age twelve and under are eligible, you may sponsor as many children as you like. They don’t need to be related to a club member. A club member must be the one taking the child fishing. Please send a photo of the youngster holding his/her catch, the child’s name, and the date of the catch via email to:
