Student Angler Series goes into high gear

The Southern Fishing News Student Angler Series of fishing classes have gone into high gear after an unplanned shoulder studentanglerserieslogosmalsurgery kept the instructor off the “platform” for several months.

Two classes have been scheduled in December. A class for 30 young anglers and new anglers will be presented on December 7 at the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints in Florence. December 8 Southern Fishing News Student Angler Series will be held at The First Baptist Church in Center Star with 25 of the Brooks High School Bass Team.

Ron McDonald, Publisher & Editor of Southern Fishing News ( presents the classes on adding finesse fishing to student angler’s skills.
