KIDS CAN LEARN TO “DROP IN A LINE” AT A JUNIOR FISHING WORKSHOP in Crestline
Crestline, CA (July 1,2013)—It’s THAT season again! – Time for kids to take a break from video games and television and come out to the lake for some fresh air and fishing fun. And if they don’t know how to “drop in a line,” they can attend a Junior Fishing Workshop at Lake Gregory Regional Park nearby and learn all the skills for this life-long activity.
Lake Gregory Regional Park’s workshop will be on Saturday, July 27th 2013 and begins at 7:30 a.m. and conclude at 1 p.m.
Boys and girls ages 7 to 15 will learn this favorite outdoor pastime under the instruction of expert teachers. The junior anglers will rotate through five hands-on stations, learning the basics of lake-shore fishing, including the anatomy of a fish; what gear to use and knot-tying; rules and safe practices; cleaning, cooking, and tasting; and tips for casting and catching.
Once the kids have completed the organized training, they can check-out a fishing rod and reel and practice their new skills at the lake. Each participant also gets their very own event t-shirt at the end of the workshop.
All equipment and tackle is provided for each child with the $7 registration fee.
