Moose Fest offers young anglers a chance to learn from pros


NEENAH - Kids in Neenah had a unique opportunity to learn how to fish from some of the best.

Riverside Park was the site of Moose Fest.

That's where some of the best anglers from around the state held seminars.

At least 5,000 people attended the three-day event.

The event organizer says the sport of fishing is gradually fading over time.

"It's one of those activities that actually used to be built into the American fabric that has sort of gone away with the electronic age and stuff with kids sitting in front of TVs and stuff. It gets them out of the house and gets them action within the outdoors," said organizer Steve Krueger.

In the past, the festival has attracted as many as 7,000 people.
