Fish­ing rods a re­quire­ment this week­end!

Stanstead Journal - - NEWS - Vic­to­ria Vanier

If you’d like to in­tro­duce your young­ster or teenager to the re­lax­ing sport of fish­ing, then this week­end may be the right time to do it. The an­nual

event, where chil­dren rang­ing in age from twelve to seventeen can try out fish­ing for free, will be tak­ing place on Satur­day, from9:30 am to 2:30 pm, at the mu­nic­i­pal wharf, in Ayer’s Cliff, and on Sun­day, from 9:30 am to 2:30 pm, at the Fed­eral wharf in North Hat­ley. Chil­dren who take part will also be el­i­gi­ble for a fish­ing li­cence card pro­vided by the Govern­ment of Que­bec (for this age group only).

Th­ese events are spon­sored by the

which buys small, one to four pound fish, usu­ally speck­led and rain­bow trout be­cause they’re easy for the chil­dren to catch, and re­leases them into a net­ted off area at the wharves.

Be­sides a chance to learn about fish­ing and spend a re­lax­ing time by beau­ti­ful Lake Mas­saw­ippi, there will be free hot-dogs, re­fresh­ments and face­paint­ing. Ev­ery­one must bring their own fish­ing rods!

The ac­tiv­i­ties are also sup­ported by the Govern­ment of Que­bec, the Mu­nic­i­pal­i­ties of Ayer’s Cliff, North Hat­ley, and Can­ton de Hat­ley, Cana­dian Tire, The Til­lot­son Coat­i­cook Re­gional Fund, In­ter Marché Guy Pa­try & Fils, and Lebaron J.B.Ltd.

Re­sults from the

an­nual Fish­ing Tour­na­ment, which con­cluded last month, are up on the club’s web­site along with some pho­tos of some of the huge fish that were caught. Win­ners for big­gest grey trout were: Alain Roy, 8.06 kilo­grams; Denis Laprade, 7.23 kg.; and J.C. Boutin, 7.23 kg. Brown trout win­ners were: An­dré Bom­bardier, 2.45 kilo­grams; Alex Grondin, 2.43 kg.; Serge Roy, 2.19 kg.

Spaghetti Sup­per Fundraiser for The Men’s National E Tour­na­ment was a good turnout. This year they will be go­ing to Ni­a­gara Falls Au­gust 1st to 5th 2013. They will be play­ing against teams from across Canada. There are ap­prox­i­mately 50 teams each year. To play in the National E Tour­na­ment you have to par­tic­i­pate in 2 SPN tour­na­ments and also a provin­cial tour­na­ment. Help sup­port them at their next fundraiser ac­tiv­ity in go­ing to Ni­a­gara Falls Men’s National E Tour­na­ment!
