LUBBOCK, Texas -

Bass Pro Shops and Cabela's donated 200 fishing rods to non profits in our area. 

The donations went to the Texas Boys Ranch and the Lions Club Kid Fish program. It's an effort to get kids outside.

"Bass Pro Shops founder John Morris is challenging families to get their kids outdoors," said Michael Lawson with Cabela's. "Leave the digital screens behind leave the tablets the video games and t-v and go outside and challenge them to fish."

Cabela's is hosting a free kid fish event this weekend, providing reels and bait for any kids in attendance.
