Fishing Derby attracts junior anglers

Email

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.
