Learn to fish at Kingfisher

The learn to fish program for children 15 and under takes place July 29 at the Kingfisher Interpretive Centre.

  • Jul. 22, 2012 5:00 p.m.

Here’s a chance for local youth to learn the art of fishing.

The learn to fish program for children 15 and under takes place July 29 at the Kingfisher Interpretive Centre, (25 kilometres east of Enderby at 2550 Mabel Lake Rd.)

Local angling experts will be volunteering their time to provide a firsthand fishing experience and an opportunity for instruction on  casting techniques, fish handling practices, fish identification, fly tying and more.

“This unique chance to learn the ins and outs of successful fishing is something you don’t want to miss if you are just learning to fish or have never had the chance to try,” states a release.

“If you have your own gear, please bring it with you or if you aren’t sure what kind of gear you will need to start your fishing career, rods will be available to use and advice on what to purchase will be available.”

The event will also include an interactive aquatic bug display providing the chance to learn how to recognize what our local fish are feeding on.

The Enderby Lions Club will be barbecuing up a storm and serving food by donation.

The event is free and will run from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m.

For information, call the Kingfisher Interpretive Centre at -250-838-0004.
