Kids fishout August 2014

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.
