Event Details

Overview of the "Teach a Child to Fish Day" activities.

  • The children's fishing event will be from 10 am - 2 pm.
  • If you have registered your child/children please show up between 10am -12pm to 1502 Shore Line Dr. Lead Hill, Arkansas 72644. Pond Hopper Nation will have a sign in table.(Look for red, white, and blue flags.)
  • Children who sign in will receive a free fishing rod and ticket for a casting game.
  • After your child receives their fishing rod they will be directed to a casting game where the child will get three casts at a target, and if landed in target will receive a prize. All children will receive a consolation prize if they do not cast onto target.
  •  From there your child will go to one of our designated fishing areas where there will be volunteer helpers to help with any fishing needs. There is no competition, or derby. Our goal is to help teach the next generation of anglers how to fish and bring families closer together.
  • At 2:30 pm any children who would like to participate in the Lady Bass Anglers Weigh in will have the opportunity to see their fish they caught for the day, meet some of the Pro Anglers, and get to take pictures. 
  • The Lady Bass Anglers will have a Lure toss of free goodies following the completion of their weigh in. Children who want to participate are more than welcome!
