The Henry County Rod and Gun Club held their annual Youth Fishing Tournament on Saturday, June 21. More than 50 children of all ages were on hand to “catch the big ones.” Skill levels ranged from “never having fished before” to “just about ready to turn pro and hit the circuit”.

Every child who participated was presented with a trophy. After the tournament every child was provided lunch. The tournament was paid for entirely by the Henry County Rod and Gun Club and sponsors. It offers a great opportunity to get our youth outdoors.
