King George’s Youth Fishing event was an occasion not to be missed

  Saturday May 9th was a sunny day with breezy conditions that brought out over 100 young people and their parents to the annual Youth Fishing Event. This is the third year it has been held at a private pond off Rt. 3 in King George County. King George Recreation Department partnered with the Northern Neck Chapter of the Virginia Deer Hunters Association, and VDGIF to put on a great time for youngsters many of whom caught their first fish. Dicks Sporting Goods and NWTF helped sponsor the event by providing food and gear for the youngsters. Shakespeare donated many fishing outfits for new anglers too. There were many individuals who donated their time to make the event a success. Some of those that were on hand to assist included Nicole Paulsen, the KG Parks and Rec. staff, Buddy Fines, Senior Conservation Officer Spuchesi, Bob Wernsman, Stanely Burrel, Joe Hicks, Jared Vann and his father and many others.
   This event is a success each year due to the hard work of those named above and others who want to introduce kids to the outdoors. The fishing started off a bit slow but quickly warmed up with many large bream and some very nice bass caught. By the end of the event many kids who had never cast a line on their own were casting their lines with skill and reeling in fish. Many thanks to those who came out to help out and hooked a few new anglers in the process.
