The last kids fishout for 2014 was held today and 278 young fisher persons learnt to cast a fly and catch a feisty rainbow trout – many for the very first time. Attached are some of those successful anglers on this fine spring day.
August the 11th started out as a cold frosty day but this did not deter 168 young anglers from trying to catch a feisty rainbow from the fish and game pond. Budding young anglers had quick lesson in how to cast a fly before being let loose on the unsuspecting trout that roamed the pond. All young anglers were successful with trout on the menu of many households that night. Below are some of the happy anglers from this day.
On cold fine winters day 197 kids caught a trout in the Eastern fish and game pond – some for the first time. Attached are some of the images captured on this great day.
Thank to Roger for the images
