On January 23, 2013, the Competitive Sport Fishing League announced that an event with an unique format to bring new blood to the sport would soon be unveiled.
March 26, 2013, Stouffville Ontario. The CSFL announced today that with the support and backing of the newly formed Durham Anglers Association they are pleased to unveil the first Angler New Angler event which will take place on Lake Scugog out of Goreski’s Lakeside Resort, Port Perry on June 16th, 2013.
Andrew Pallotta of the CSFL commented “When Dan Risorto and Kris Totosko first came to me and asked if we would support the Durham Anglers Association, I confirmed that the CSFL supports all clubs that respect, protect and uphold the integrity of the sport.” Andrew went on to say “Dan and Kris were very adamant in doing something different and like other groups the ultimate goal is to bring new anglers to the sport. It was then that it came to me, the only way to ensure new anglers is by running an event for new anglers. With a combined effort of a tournament organizer, a tournament angler and someone new to the sport, I felt very optimistic that we could run a joint tournament that would bring new blood to competitive sport fishing.” Kris Totosko, who is relatively new to the competitive scene, brought much needed insight of the challenges that new anglers are faced with from pre-fishing to the weigh-in. Kris stated “All tournament guys start somewhere, some take a little longer than others but with the right guidance through organizations like the CSFL and organizations like ourselves we can only hope to make it easier to find their way.” Dan Risorto of the D.A.A. added “First off I want to thank the CSFL for partnering up with us and in helping us design and establish this annual event as I am very excited about this new concept and truly appreciate all those involved.” Dan goes on to say. “I have such a good vibe about this event, in fact right from its conception, it has been nothing short of spectacular. This is an event that is open to all and I feel you should not miss.”
