I can't help on the guide note but depending on location you were talking about if in the Dallas area I am sure I have some 'extra' fishing equipment that I try to look at donating and perhaps some others would as well to also maybe send them home with something. I see the signature is Abilene so that is why the question on where your efforts are focused.
We have kids from Dallas/Ft Worth and all over Texas. I can a arrange a pick up on fishing donations and that would be great. Just let me know what we can get together for the kids and I will make arrangements.
