100 personal-sized fishing line recycling bins assembled by 4-H members in Sarasota County were distributed on April 3rd and 4th to each of the boats participating in the 2009 Sertoma Suncoast Kinfish Tournament which was held at Marina Jacks in Sarasota. These bins were funded by the Sertoma Club of Greater Sarasota. On April 4th, "Stow It-Don't Throw It" Project Chair Sean Russell spoke with the crowd at the fish weigh-in about the importance of recycling monofilament fishing line. This was an excellent opportunity to spread the word about the "Stow It-Don't Throw It" Project and give anglers the personal-sized monofilanent recycling bins. We would like to thank the Sertoma Club of Greater Sarasota for their support of the "Stow It-Don't Throw It" Project!
On March 27th 4-H members from multiple clubs in Sarasota County met to assemble 100 personal-sized monofilament fishing line recycling bins. These bins were funded by the Sertoma Club of Greater Sarasota and were made so they could be distributed at the Sertoma Club's upcoming Kingfish Tournament.
4-H members in Leon County are committed to helping wildlife through the "Stow It - Don't Throw It" Project by assembling 200 personal-sized monofilament fishing line recycling bins at their 4-H meetings. Once completed these bins will be distributed to anglers and boaters in an effort to spread the word about the importance of recycling fishing line!
