Not too long since I’ve written, but had to give kudos to the Northwest Florida Daily News for the coverage of this year’s Destin Fishing Rodeo.

Over the years, I have been a frequent critic of the non-coverage of what I always considered the premier event of the fall. This year, I and many other readers experienced a total reversal of coverage. An excellent, well-written synopsis of the daily activities of the Rodeo made me, and I am sure others, anxious to grab the paper to catch up.

Thanks for recognizing that this event drew great crowds, sold out of most 2016 merchandise, and had the second-highest number of weigh-ins.

My personal opinion is that your coverage helped make this a great year for the Rodeo. Got to say thanks.
