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.
