We had so much fun at our recent Kids Can Catch event with the Alberta Conservation Association at the Crosslink County Sportsplex. By the look of some of the smiles, we think we have a few more anglers on the line. We hope to see you at our next event!

This event is free to attend and create a non-competitive family fishing atmosphere to hook new and young anglers on fishing.
