I have two blog posts in the works, one about a Beaver Creek outing (fishing success!!) and one about the Fly Fishing Film Tour the wife and I attended.
More importantly, however:
City Catch is scheduled for Saturday, April 13, 2013. As always, we need volunteers to make this annual event a success.
MD TU will need volunteers on two days. On Friday, April 12th, we will stock 800 Rainbows in Dead Run, a pretty stream in Leakin Park. Stocking, which is always fun and interesting, will take place in the morning at a time to be announced.
City Catch itself will take place on Saturday, April 13th. We need anglers (no experience necessary) to serve as guides to teach the kids the fun of fishing and the value of conservation.
On the 13th, we ask volunteers to arrive by 8:00 a.m. for a brief orientation. At 9:00 a.m., 90 kids will arrive for a half day of fishing followed by a hotdog lunch at noon. MDTU will provide each child with a spinning rod and tackle that they can take home. Our aim is to have one guide for every two kids.
City Catch is fun and rewarding. The volunteers enjoy themselves as much as the kids. City Catch is, however, volunteer intensive, and we need your help. You can volunteer for the 12th, the 13th, or both. Our greatest need is on the 13th when the kids arrive.
