Develo Junior Fly Fishing Festival; July 11th, 2009
Develo begins sponsoring the Jonkershoek Junior Fly Festival. The only thing more important than helping the developing world is helping develop the next generation of anglers. That is why Develo is hosting this great event at the famous Jonkershoek Nature Reserve and Fishery in the Western Cape, South Africa.
100% of the funds raised through Develo Events go to non-profits that we choose for each event. The funds raised from this event will go to the Pebbles Project, a South Africa non-profit that provides education and support to children with special needs. Please visit their site if you would like to donate directly
