“Despite all the rain, our inaugural event went very well,” reported event organizer Ceryne Staples.
“The folks from GoFish BC made the trip up to Dixon Lake from Kamloops bright and early on Sunday morning to set up educational information and fishing rods for Barriere Nature Kids’ Learn to Fish Day,” said Staples.
The facilitators also brought posters, photographs, and even some tiny preserved fish eggs and fry for the kids to look at.
“With five families and seven kids participating, the dock was a perfect place to try our newfound skills,” said Staples, “We practiced tying knots, learned about fish biology and proper handling techniques, and then got to practice casting off the dock. “Thanks so much everyone for coming out, and to GoFish BC for providing us with the opportunity.”
