City event looks to hook kids

KidFish planned for April 13 at Holland Lake Pond

(Continued)

KidFish will provide fishing equipment including rods, reels and bait on a first come, first serve basis but participants can also bring their own, Thieme said. A short clinic will be given before the event begins to show those new to the sport how to cast a line and bait their hooks. Upon completion of that, a “Bachelor of Angling” degree will be awarded and the fishing can begin, according to a brochure.

“That’s nice because a lot of our younger kids have never gone fishing before,” Thieme said. “It’s a great way to show kids how cool fishing is.”

Volunteers will also help kids that need it in catching a fish. For more information, contact the Parks and Recreation Department at 817-598-4034.
