On Saturday April 30th Mike Ward and I spent the morning representing The Bass College at an event called "Casting With Cops", the grand opening of the catch and release pond in New Castle DE's Glasgow Park. We helped educate young anglers on fishing safety and techniques, and promoted The Bass College as a resource for them to build upon their interest in bass fishing.
We witnessed parents taking their kids out for their first taste of the sport that me, Mike and thousands ......... make that MILLIONS of others are so passionate about. Néw Castle County law enforcement was out and about, interacting with everyone, and taking the time to teach youngsters how to cast a line. By and large, this event, and hopefully The Bass College's efforts, enlightened and influenced a new generation of anglers.
In addition to our educational efforts The Bass College, and my company, Blood Baits by Clyde gave away about $500.00 in soft plastics, crankbaits, and a St. Croix Mojo Bass spinning rod to a very appreciative crowd. Hopefully these efforts will have an impact on those who came out to participate.
Mike and I are looking forward to participating in another, upcoming New Castle County fishing event, and we hope to see you there next time!
