West Palm Beach - The West Palm Beach Fishing Club is going to be a real 'Hot Spot' for area anglers and boaters on Saturday, April 17th, when the club hosts its annual one-day yard sale with the fishermen in mind. The free event will take place from 7:00 a.m. to 12:00 noon at the Fishing Club, located at 201 Fifth Street in downtown West Palm Beach (on the corner of North Flagler Drive and 5th Street). The Yard Sale will be of particular interest to anyone who is 'fishing' for a deal on a used rod & reel or that 'hard to find' part for their boat. A wide variety of used items will be for sale including fishing rods & reels, snorkeling & dive gear, downriggers, boat anchors, dock lines, cast nets, fishing lures, electronic fish finders, boat propellers, terminal tackle, tackle boxes and many more marine related items. A small section of the yard sale also includes houseware items & clothing. "Basically this is a yard sale with a theme, we're definitely filling a unique niche. One fisherman's junk is another fisherman's treasure," said Fishing Club member Rick Ross, a key yard sale volunteer.
Proceeds from the Fishing Club Yard Sale will benefit the youth education and conservation efforts of the PBCFF, the Fishing Club's charitable affiliate. The PBCFF conducts several youth oriented programs throughout the year including their popular Kid's Fishing Day outreach program, a unique environmental education and fishing adventure event held each summer for underprivileged youth, and their Rod's and Reels For Kids program which puts refurbished and new fishing tackle into the hands of needy youngsters and community youth groups.
The PBCFF accepts donations of unwanted marine related items for this event all year long. All contributions are tax deductible and support PBCFF youth fishing programs and local marine conservation efforts. For additional info call the PBCFF at (561) 832-6780.
