MONTICELLO, AR (September 20, 2017) – This past weekend SeaArk Boats partnered with Pond Hopper Nation to host a “Teach a Child to Fish Day” in Russellville, Ark.
Pond Hopper Nation is an organization dedicated to promoting the sport of fishing by bringing beginners and professionals together to educate, entertain, and share the love of fishing with as many people as possible, primarily through “Teach a Child to Fish” events across the United States. The event in Russellville provided not only fishing poles, tackle boxes, and t-shirts to 48 participating kids, but also knowledge of fishing, which will last a lifetime.
“It’s awesome to have events teaching kids to fish, introducing them to the outdoors, and getting them out of the house. Fishing is better than a video game any day of the week and we hope these events demonstrate that to the kids,” said SeaArk President Steve Henderson. “We look forward to working with Pond Hopper Nation again on future events.”
The event correlated with the Lady Bass Anglers Association tournament, which weighed in during the event, allowing the kids to see professional fishermen and experience a real tournament setting.
Pond Hopper organizer Albert Talafuse said, “This event was a huge success. It gave people an opportunity to bring children and grandchildren out for a day of fun and learning. We’d like to thank the City of Russellville, Lake Dardnell State Park Rangers, and Russellville Fire Department for providing a great time for the kids. It’s an awesome experience to see the excitement and joy of a child as they catch their first fish.”
