2nd Annual Blair Smith Memorial – Fishing With Kids

Last year was the first of what will be many fun fishing days for kids in memory of a great man – Blair Smith. You may remember my post last year on the event, the first annual Blair Smith Memorial (click here to read the story). This years event was held yesterday in Trenton, Ontario at Centennial Park on Lake Ontario.

Even despite the cold weather and high winds, a turn out of around 50 children was present! Plenty of pan fish were caught, and some mud cat too! Tons of prizes including; rods, reels, tackle boxes with tackle, shirts, hats and free lunch were given out! I photographed the event, and I will post some of my favourite photos from the day:

Fish on!

A huge thanks to everyone who came out to the event, and those who donated and helped make it possible again this year. It’s so great to get out and help some kids enjoy fishing. I can’t wait for next years event!!
