Is Roscoe America's "Ultimate Fishing Town?"

In a contest that is eerily similar to Budget Travel Magazine's "coolest town in America" contest, only fishier, the World Fishing Network is asking small towns across the country to try their luck for the title of "Ultimate Fishing Town USA."

Roscoe, in Sullivan County, is making a good showing, with 64 people voting for it so far.

Will it win? If it does, the town will receive a $25,000 check. Erin Phelan, who submitted the original town application, has high hopes for the prize:

With $25,000 and a a television show, this could be a jump start to informing the largest media market in the USA of the pleasures of the out of doors right in their own back yard. A treasure waiting to be discovered again!
