The Izaak Walton League of America held their annual handicapped fishing event at Marr Park yesterday and many turned out to have fun. This event provides an opportunity for a handicapped person to experience the recreation of fishing. One participant, Ed Jones says he really enjoyed catching his eight and a quarter inch bluegill.
He says he enjoys fishing because it’s really fun and likes the meals that are cooked. Following the fishing, a pork burger meal was served and several prizes were awarded. This fishing event has been sponsored by the Izaak Walton League since 1948.
