Fishing Derby attracts junior anglers
Most popular events have humble origins. The Park Rapids Area Kids Fishing derby is no exception.
It all began with a tape measure.
Seventy-five lucky little anglers will dip their poles into the Fish Hook River July 25 - the number Sharon Melbo's tape measure calculated could fit on the banks surrounding the Red Bridge.
The 9th annual contest runs from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. and fills within a day of the entry forms being publicized.
