Ask any angler the best place to fish and most will tell you about a hidden gem right in their own backyard. WFN: World Fishing Network, North America’s only 24-hour fishing lifestyle network, is asking anglers in the U.S. and Canada to select WFN’s Ultimate Fishing Town 2012. The network is once again running separate contests in Canada and the United States, with the town in each country tallying the most votes earning national recognition as WFN’s Ultimate Fishing Town, a $25,000 community donation and more.
Beginning on April 2, WFN began accepting nominations at www.wfnfishingtown.com from anglers across the U.S. and Canada who believe that their town is WFN’s Ultimate Fishing Town. In addition to the national recognition, the winning town will receive a $25,000 community donation to be used towards fishing-related cause(s), plus a tourism boost as WFN produces a feature about fishing in their town and airs it on the network and WFN website throughout the year.
“No matter if they love to fish in a small rural community or a popular tourist destination, we encourage everyone to nominate their town,” said Mark Rubinstein President and CEO of WFN. “The search for WFN’s Ultimate Fishing Town offers towns all across Canada and the U.S. a great opportunity to show the world why their town is the best place to fish. We look forward to sharing their stories and letting the people choose WFN’s Ultimate Fishing Towns for 2012.”
