Last year the fishing club I belong to (The Quinte Bassmasters) held a free kids fishing derby in Napanee, Ontario. Despite the light rain during set-up, we had a great turnout!! Lots of fun, smiles and panfish too! Some of the families that showed up were not very familiar with fishing, but we had club members there to help out. I even hooked a few worms up! It’s great to share the sport of fishing, which is why I try and get involved in any event like this. After all, it’s the future of fishing!
Well, we are at it again and holding our 2nd Annual Kids Fishing Derby!
Here are the details for this years event:
