LETTER: Destin Fishing Rodeo – The Northwest Florida Daily News
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.
