    HOOKED ON FISHING ISSUES CALL FOR OFFICIAL DERBY PARTNERS

    AGENCIES AND ORGANIZATIONS ARE ENCOURAGED TO "TAKE A KID FISHING" IN 2002

        KETCHUM, OK Hooked on Fishing International (HOFI) has issued its annual
    call for organizations with a special interest in helping young people to
    host a Kids All-American Fishing Derby in 2002.
    Approved partners, including public and private organizations, clubs and
    agencies, will receive an extensive kit that includes everything necessary
    to host a local derby, including entry forms and prizes, plus a
    nationally-acclaimed guide to planning the event. 
    Organizations that wish to host a Kids All-American Fishing Derby next year
    should request an official information and application brochure before
    December 1st. Requests for the application may be made in one of three ways: 
    Email Hooked on Fishing International at info@kids-fishing.com 
    Write Hooked On Fishing International, P O Box 660, Ketchum, OK 74349
    Visit the Hooked on Fishing Web site,  www.kids-fishing.com  and go to the
    section called "Organize a Fishing Derby." On this interactive web site, an
    official application can be requested on-line.
    Led by title sponsor Wal-Mart Stores, Inc., some of America's top companies
    have supported the Kids All-American Fishing Derby, heading into its 16th
    year with a record of having served more than six million young people and
    their families. In addition to Wal-Mart, sponsoring brands include Pepsi,
    Frito-Lay, Southwest Airlines, Fujifilm, Dubble Bubble Bubble Gum, Laker by
    Jadico, Trilene, Water Gremlin, Eagle Claw, Zebco, Berkley PowerBait,
    FishingWorld.com, and G3 Boats. 
    Gordon Holland, HOFI executive director, predicted the 2002 derby season
    will surpass the 2001 record in which Hooked on Fishing International
    sanctioned more than 700 fishing derbies in all 50 states. Hosting
    organizations included government agencies like the U.S. Forest Service,
    many city parks and recreation departments, state fish and game
    departments, chambers of commerce, YMCAs, fishing clubs, scouting groups
    and civic and service organizations such as Optimist, Lions, Kiwanis, and
    Elks.
    In addition to receiving information about holding the main event,
    organizations will receive information and entry forms for the
    Frito-Lay/Pepsi Kids Casting Contest, the Southwest Airlines "I caught a
    Fish" contest, and the Fujifilm Big Fish Contest. 
    Two years ago Chevy Kadake, 11, of Kake, AK, won the saltwater division of
    the "Big Fish" Contest with a Pacific Halibut weighing 110-pounds, the
    largest fish ever caught in a Kids All-American Fishing Derby. In 2002 the
    youngster catching the largest fish in each of the two divisions,
    Freshwater and Saltwater, receives a $500 Savings Bond and a special gift
    basket from Fujifilm.  State winners receive a Fujifilm QuickSnap 2-Pack
    Camera.  Underscoring the derby's conservation message, all participants
    are encouraged by Fujifilm to "Fish, Photograph and Release."
    Youngsters participating in the Frito-Lay/Pepsi Kids Casting Contest get to
    make two casts at a special target. The winner, at the derby,  receives a
    Zebco rod and reel combo. All participants are entered into a national
    drawing for a grand prize. 
    Every derby participant who catches a fish of any kind or size, and
    completes an entry form, is automatically entered into the "I Caught A
    Fish!" Contest, a national drawing for four round-trip tickets to any
    destination served by Southwest Airlines.
