City of Champions Reels-In Huge Catch!
Pro fishing comes to Pittsburgh in a “whopper” of a way this September...
A three day, made-for-television event that puts the Golden Triangle and its renown rivers—Allegheny, Ohio and Monongahela—in national television limelight.
Presented by FLW—the world's leading professional fishing tournament organization—the inaugural Marcellus Shale Coalition 3 Rivers Challenge debuts September 27–29. Fourteen top bass and walleye anglers on the FLW circuit will get a western PA welcome and take to the water in two separate fishing events including a celebrity pro-am and a charity fishing competition that benefits aquatic and environmental education programs for children here.
The entire Challenge will be filmed by NBC Sports Network and documented in a post tournament highlights show that will air nationally on the Network Oct. 28...regionally on ROOT Sports and locally on WPXI-Channel 11 in schedules soon to be announced.
You can drop your lines too! A FREE family fishing program takes place the morning of the tourney Sept. 29. All are welcome to register and the first 300 kids [15 and under] who do receive a free rod and reel.
So take the bait and come on down—to fish, frolic or just be a face in the crowd...and discover what it's like to fish, pro-style!
