Horns and Hooks holds second fishing derby

The Vidette

Horns and Hooks magazine will be holding its second annual fishing derby in Grays Harbor, running Sept. 20-22.

Hoping to see salmon catches larger than last year’s 24 pounds (two fish tied at that weight) Rex Peterson is very excited about the potential of this year’s derby.

“This year we are partnering with Y.O.U. — Youth Outdoors Unlimited — and will be taking some of the kids out for a fishing trip. I have a great respect for the organization and the opportunity this will provide to the kids. It will hopefully give them a new view on fishing — that it is much more than a recreation or a sport,” said Peterson.

Horns and Hooks is now a Montesano-based operation, having recently moved its office into Montesano Square on West Brumfield Avenue.

Along with the fishing derby, Horns and Hooks begins its second season of cable programming on Root Sports Network (Comcast channel 31). Running from October through March, the show will offer the same format as the previous year, taking viewers along on hunting and fishing adventures. The show will air for 26 weeks.

With the magazine, fishing derby and a television show, Horns and Hooks will also take over the Grays Harbor Sportsman show held at the Grays Harbor Fairgrounds, next year.
