Fishin Fools Seminar & Information Night

2019: Hope Renewed

Whether competing for money and awards or just bragging rights, fishermen are always hoping for more and bigger fish to battle and maybe to fill the cooler as well.

For most of us, the challenge is finding things to increase our chance of success and then applying those things on a given body of water. Sources of information are many but sifting through millions of pages to find knowledge specific to the type of fishing we’re interested in can be daunting at best.

The easiest way to get pertinent, current and reliable information is probably to ask an expert. Someone who has had the success you seek and who knows conditions specific to the fish, body of water, season, etc. and whom you can ask questions of is perhaps the ideal way to learn.

So how do you find an expert? You could write to a famous TV fisherman and hope that he answers you with tips that might (or might not) apply to your situation. Or . . . you could join a fishing club that regularly invites professional fisherman to speak at their meetings; a club like the Oswegoland Fishin’ Fools.

January 7 at 7 PM will be your chance to ask an expert as the Fools kick off 2019 with a seminar by successful pro fisherman, Jim Crowley. Crowley has fished in 6 different countries and on numerous bodies of both fresh and salt water. A multi species angler, Jim is sought after for his informative and entertaining seminars. He has been a member of the Rapala [Lures] team for over 13 years! Dan Quinn, Promotions Manager for Rapala stated, “Jim has one of the best seminars I have ever seen!”. The focus of Jim’s seminar will be “Breaking Down Reservoirs”. This is vital information for many anglers.

The seminar will be held at the Allied First Bank, 3201 Orchard Rd, Oswego. The club’s regular meeting will begin at 7 PM followed immediately by the seminar at 7:30. Tickets are available at the door for $10 (non-members) which may be credited towards the cost of a membership. The club is also introducing a new

Family Membership program beginning in 2019, providing savings on membership fees for multiple family members, including children as young as 8 years old.

Considering the amount of information to be studied and the many tasks to perform in preparation for the coming season, taking advantage of this opportunity to learn from an expert might be your chance for renewed hope for a successful 2019 fishing season
