Big Brothers Big Sisters was fortunate to offer tBigs matched with teen Littles the opportunity to learn to fish after which Littles received a fishing rod, reel and tackle kit. Matches received instruction from volunteers from the Brown County Chapter Izaak Walton League on fish identification, casting and bait, safety and other rules and best practices, before casting into the stocked ponds of Osprey Point in De Pere. Thank you to Green Bay Walleyes for Tomorrow for the gift of the fishing rods, reels and tackle kits. Thanks to Cabela’s for the fishing line and for adding it to the reels. And many thanks to the volunteers of the Izaak Walton League who lead our matches through instruction and catching fish.
Special thanks to volunteer Lance Fickler for taking these amazing photos!
